Decatur, AL, September 28, 2012 - ITW Sexton, a world leader in the production of deep drawn stampings, has formed a strategic alliance with Corbett Smith Co., a Napa, CA manufacturer’s rep firm. Corbett Smith will help ITW Sexton find new markets throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Nevada for the customized stampings it manufactures at its Martinsburg, WV facility.

“Corbett Smith’s ability to work with a wide range of manufacturers, processors and end users should help us increase demand for our deep drawn stampings along the West Coast and in part of the Mountain West,” says Yurij Wowczuk, ITW Sexton’s general manager. “Corbett Smith’s diverse customer base provides us with ample opportunities to apply our engineering and manufacturing capabilities to a variety of applications.”

Blake Smith co-founded Corbett Smith 50 years ago in Fullerton, CA. Since 1962, the company has been representing manufacturers who produce deep drawn metal parts, blanking dies and screw machine parts, as well as companies that specialize in electroforming, fineblanking, metal impacting, metal injection molding and magnesium thixoforming. Many of Corbett Smith’s customers serve the medical equipment production sector.

“Our partnership with ITW Sexton breaks new ground for us,” says Richard Jetton, Corbett Smith’s owner and president, who joined the company as an employee in 1988 after working for Reynolds Aluminum. “Representing ITW Sexton allows us to supply products used in larger structures such as compressors, pumps, agricultural filtration equipment and power generation systems that are too costly to import from China or elsewhere.”
