    Member celebrates five year anniversary

    star manufacturing

    Member company, Star Manufacturing celebrates five years in business. Chamber president, Brian Carley and Chamber ambassador Dave Stupp with Time Warner Telecom, presented a five-year anniversary certificate to Mario Listo, Star Manufacturing president and staff.

    Star Manufacturing began as the idea that a company could be a one-stop shop to fulfill every customer’s manufacturing needs. Mario Listo was working for a twenty million dollar company that was bought out. During this time of transition, Mario decided he wanted to take this time to start his own business. So, in February 2009, Star Manufacturing was officially born. What is amazing about this company is that it was formed during the worst economic time in over fifty years, during a period of great recession.

    Star Manufacturing started with Mario and an engineer working out of Mario’s house day and night for over three months. When they secured enough business, they moved into an office/warehouse that was approximately 7,600 sq. ft. Today 5 years later, Star Manufacturing has a 38,000 SQFT facility and 65 employees and operates out of two facilities building electrical panels, cable assemblies, and engineering services. Star has expanded to offer engineering, design and builds, start up, field service, and kitting services. Star Manufacturing is a rare company in this industry, in that they can support every need in every manufacturing sector on the electrical side and do field service anywhere in the world.

    “We manufacture electrical control panels and wire harnesses for a majority of the world’s top companies in just about every industry.  We are dedicated to every customer and pride ourselves on quality, on time delivery  and the best customer service and support anywhere in the world. Our goal is to build the finest facility in our industry by 2016-2017 so that we can handle not only our current customers, but secure large contracts with world players in our industry while providing  jobs and opportunity for those that want to strive to be part of something special.” says Mario Listo, Star Manufacturing president.

    Listo prides Star Manufacturing’s success on his employees. He says, “our people deserve all the credit because their care is off the charts! The spirit they bring each day is what makes a company successful. When you have great people, you have a great company. Star Manufacturing also is appreciative of our customers for their faith and loyalty and we would not be here today, had it not been for Intelligrated  taking a chance on a startup company from day one. We will always be forever grateful to them, and to every customer that took a chance on Star in the beginning. “
