"We sell protection." That's a phrase Ryan Ramsey, president of Zero Manufacturing, likes to use to describe his company's products.

"Our protection is in the form of aluminum, roto-molded plastic and injection-molded plastic cases," he says. "We manufacture highly engineered custom products that ensure the safe transport and viability of valuable equipment and electronics for our customers."

Zero's cases, enclosures and assemblies are designed, engineered and fabricated at the company's 300,000-square-foot facility in North Salt Lake, where the company employs 175 workers. Ramsey says Zero provides solutions through a standard product line, or the ability to customize any existing product or engineer and manufacture any protective solution from scratch.

The company got its start in Utah in 1992 after relocating from southern California. Zero is now a world supplier of protective cases and enclosures. Its specialties include quality, deep-drawn and fabricated aluminum and molded plastic cases, enclosures and assemblies for the aerospace, industrial, medical, oil and gas, logistics, electronics and telecommunications markets.

International sales comprise approximately 12 percent of Zero's revenues. Its primary international markets include India, South America, Canada and Europe. Military applications comprise nearly 50 percent of the company's sales, followed by aerospace, which is about 13 percent, and then industrial oil and gas, medical and food service.

As an original equipment manufacturer, the company sells its products to primary contractors, end customers and end users and utilizes manufacturing sales representatives to drive sales in its foreign markets.

Ramsey says Zero is the leader in aluminum deep draw manufacturing and is using its technical expertise to expand its domestic and international markets to meet growing demand for its protective cases. For more information about Zero visit its website or call 801-298-5900.
