Company Overview

The Beginning

The foundation of USS was a small silk-screening business operated by Joseph Ostering Senior and Joseph Ostering Junior in the household garage in 1980. With growth, USS moved into an industrial building and was joined by twin brother John Ostering and a small staff. USS was being built on strong work ethic, dedication, passion, and a continuous improvement culture. For long term success, the Osterings decided to expand services.


Expansion into Comprehensive Services & Industries

With an expertise in silk-screening, USS launched complementary finishing services to include chemical conversion coating, plating, painting, and powder coating. Naturally, USS expanded into fabrication, machining, and assembly into the ultimate one-stop manufacturing facility.  Just then, current USS customer accounts included commercial and medical industries, when USS began supporting the military and excelling with durable product offering, strong performance, and benefits derived from a full range of in-house services.


One-stop Manufacturing & Support Services
throughout the System Lifecycle

With over 30 years manufacturing experience and industry expertise, USS consistently grows, offering a diverse range of manufacturing, engineering, and professional support services. USS is committed to supporting customers to the fullest degree throughout the entire system lifecycle from concept to sustainment. Currently with over 100 employees and a second generation of family joining the company, USS focuses on a sustainable and successful future, but never forgets its beginnings. Our growth is a result of strong principles, work ethic, and highly skilled personnel.  Today, USS has the comprehensive services, manufacturing capacity, and technical experience to be the ultimate partner in the production of commercial and military systems.
