About Arete

With over 30 years of manufacturing experience, Arete Products is a small-scale contract manufacturer located in Kalamazoo, Michigan providing machining, assembling, welding/fabricating, material cutting and other manufacturing-related services.


We understand that our clients depend on us to deliver consistently, without compromise. That's why every product we manufacture undergoes rigorous testing and quality checks, so you can always count on Areté to deliver quality products on time.


We believe that to manufacture the best, we must uphold the highest standards of honesty, transparency, and responsibility. Our commitment to integrity ensures that you're choosing a partner who values trust and quality above all else.


Larger suppliers may be able to offer lower pricing but don’t always deliver in other ways. Everything we do starts with servicing our customers.


We believe that pricing is important, but not the only thing when making a decision on a supplier. With Areté, you’ll get quality products delivered on time at a competitive price.

Our clients span several industries including aerospace, heavy equipment, aftermarket tooling, outdoor equipment, and medical equipment. 

What makes us different is the relationships we have with our customers. Because we’re viewed as a partner rather than a vendor, we work closely with our customers on budgets, requirements, and timelines.

Because we put integrity at the center of everything we do, we also guarantee that your part will be delivered to your exact specifications.
