MARLBOROUGH, MA. – Web Industries, Inc. (Marlborough, Mass.) is celebrating its 45th year providing industry-leading outsource flexible material converting and contract manufacturing services for the advanced composites, consumer product, medical, industrial, and wire & cable markets. Web was founded in 1969 by Robert Fulton on $10,000 raised from family and friends. Initially serving the rolled goods slitting and spooling market, Web flourished by exceeding client expectations as well as those of their clients’ customers, and the company quickly earned a reputation throughout the Northeastern U.S. for precision converting of technically advanced flexible materials.

Over the next four decades, success has pushed the company to expand into high-tech manufacturing and value-added services such as product life cycle planning, supply chain management, and final product assembly. Today, Web has seven facilities in six U.S. states and Germany, with over 600,000 square feet of advanced converting and manufacturing capacity.

“For a company like Web to thrive for 45 years in our markets is a great accomplishment,” says Don Romine, Web Industries president and CEO. “Over that time we’ve successfully transitioned from slitting commoditized rolled paper goods to high-tech converting and manufacturing services for specialized markets like IVD medical testing and aerospace composites. Our focus on continual improvement through innovation, reinvention, and reinvestment in Web’s employee-owners has been the key to our success and will continue to guide Web Industries for the next 45 years.”

Founder Robert Fulton remains active within the company, serving as Chairman Emeritus on the Board of Directors, and he is proud that the company he founded over four decades ago continues to reflect his guiding values. As a 100 percent employee-owned company, Web’s success is directly related to the success of its clients, with the company engaging in a true role of stewardship not just of its own business but of that of its business partners as well.
