Manufacturing companies?

In my quest for a new job, I am trying to put together a list of local companies. I'm kinda running into a wall. If you guys know any companies that do the manufacturing locally, post em up. Not looking for a machine shop, but places that do the design and manufacturing. Here is my list so far...

Commercial
Peerless Industries
Littelfuse
Kraft

Automotive
International / Navistar
CAT

Aerospace
Northrop Grumman
Hamilton Sundstrand
Goodrich
Parker Hanninfin

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Brad Foote Gear Works. I hated it when I worked there though.

I heard Caterpillar just sold a heap of vehicles to Saudi Arabia for a construction project. But other folks here who work for caterpillar would know better.

Nu-Way Industries in Des Plaines. They don't manufacture products that they market, but they do an enormous amount of manufacturing and engineering for others. For instance, they made all of the stainless Fed EX drop boxes and they made all of the Quizno's toasting ovens for their sandwich shops.
As I understand it, they have done a lot of work for Buell, as well.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
