About the Tribe

Tribal is more than just parts. We are a tribe. We don’t just fight for your business; we fight alongside you, to help you win new customers and grow your business. When you choose Tribal, you join our tribe, and we join yours.

“You have a great team at Tribal … everyone at the plant is really engaged, friendly and I can see the employees really are treated well.”

– Senior Purchasing Manager, Pipe Manufacturer

Who is the Tribe?

Tribal is a highly automated, quality-focused machining and manufacturing company with a remarkable infrastructure and equipment list. More importantly, Tribal is good people. In a time when most other companies like Tribal have shut their doors or moved operations, Tribal stands resolute. We are proud to serve you as a quality manufacturer in the heart of Michigan, USA.

Why join the Tribe?

Tribal understands that businesses are built on reputations, and they are not built overnight. To build your business, you first build your reputation. Your success was built one brick, one sale at a time. We understand that struggle and want to assist you with it, to help your business grow into the future. When you choose Tribal, you hire the tribe.

What is the Tribe?

Tribal is one of the most efficient and capable machining operations in the world. We can produce large volumes of both straight and shaped (directional) machined parts (and assemblies made from them) at world competitive pricing. We are fast and automated, due to our multi-generational industry experience and impressive fleet of equipment. We are also nimble and can master smaller orders, customized parts and fast turn-around times for new product and project development. We are cost efficient. We have low overhead to help control costs. Nevertheless, we still have an innovative development staff that allows us to add value to your organization with new ideas and value engineering.

Selling the Tribe.

You know how to build a brand. That is why you are trusted to buy for your company. You lay and keep the foundation of your company strong. You implement strategy. But we also know that when you make a vendor partner choice, you still have the job of selling your decision to your team. When you choose Tribal, we will help you articulate to your team why Tribal is more than just parts — and that a partnership with Tribal is expanding and strengthening your business foundation and building your brand. Tribal is a strategic extension of your company. Together, we will do more.

Why the name Tribal?

We like the idea of partnerships. It is in God’s plan, we believe, that man is able to achieve more working together than he is alone. Whether it is through a family or a company or a country or a tribe, when we work together on a common cause, great things can happen …and rather quickly too. This basic idea makes sense to us. It is what we want for those who work at Tribal. It is what we want for our customer relationships. We want great things to happen for you. And — we liked the name!
