SX INDUSTRIES INC.
Crazy times
Founded in 1950 and located in
Stoughton, Mass., manufacturing
company SX Industries Inc. focuses
on metal stamping, die casting,
injection-molded nylon and ABS
plastic, serving markets that include
the military, leather, intimate apparel
and shoe, among others, says Lindsay
Fink, president.
When the pandemic struck, it was
apparent the company needed to pivot,
which it was quickly able to do, he says.
" One of our major military boot
customers needed help designing and
manufacturing the nose stays for the
N95-style masks, " Fink recalls. " We
ramped up production fast. Then,
once the word got out that we could
help, it snowballed into 50 other
manufacturers. We were blessed and
we were able to keep everyone working
through these unique times. "
Another pivot involved satisfying
requests from several large tent
manufacturers who had a " high
demand " for key components, which
led to the company expanding that
division this year, he adds.
That the company has its
own factories in China, India
and Honduras proved a decided
advantage, enabling SX Industries to
shift production as needed.
" It was crazy times, " he says. " If
COVID hit the India factory and a
client needed something, we got it
done via one of our other factories.
We had lots of movement so we could
meet our customers' needs. "
Flexibility is the future
He also stressed to his team-there
are currently 65 employees at the
company's U.S. manufacturing
facility, the same as before the
pandemic-the need to increase their

communications with customers,
making extra phone calls, sending
more emails, just about doubling that
volume to keep all in the loop.
" Our customers from very small
to large got incredible service during
these times, " Fink says. " SX is about
customer retention through good
times, bad times (war) and I guess now
through a pandemic. It was my first.
" Everyone here, including myself,
learned about change and flexibility.
We had to make some major product
changes in order to keep the company
moving forward, " he continues.
" Through hard work and transparency,
we did it and we continue to keep
manufacturing quality products for
our customers. "
