George Podlasek began Winslow Automatics in 1956 with a contract to produce a single airframe fastener. His organization was comprised of two employees, two machines, and a 3,000 square foot plant in New Britain, Connecticut. Under his leadership, Winslow's name became synonymous with quality, reliability, and productivity. Today, this family-owned business has grown to over 65,000 square feet of climate-controlled manufacturing area; and 10,000 square feet of office facility. However, the basic mission of Winslow Automatics has never changed; produce high-quality parts, on time, and at a reasonable price.
