  History




Industrial Steering Products, (ISP) is a woman owned small business and was founded in August of 1980 when Saginaw Steering Gear, a division of General Motors, divested itself from their pitman arm manufacturing. In the beginning, we produced both small and large pitman arms and ball studs for automobiles, material handling equipment, motor homes, and heavy trucks. Vehicular steering systems have transformed greatly over the years from using steering gears and pitman arms to using rack and pinion systems.
   
  As the steering industry transformed, ISP focused on the heavy truck steering market expanding operations, production techniques, and products to improve our manufacturing knowledge and capabilities. We began producing sway-bar clamps, tie rod ends, and drag links in addition to pitman arms and ball studs. During the first 20 years we grew from 2 to 16 employees.

Our largest growth surge began in 2001 when we diversified into the fabrication industry adding laser cutting, robotic welding, and forming to our machining services. With a complete manufacturing operation we can nearly make anything from steel, aluminum or other steel alloys.

Since diversifying in 2001, we have doubled in size and now have a workforce of 40+ employees. Additionally, to better market our new services and we began doing business as both Industrial Steering Products and Laser Technologies in late 2003.
