U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Ranking Member of the Senate Small Business Committee, has announced Geater Machining and Manufacturing of Buchanan County as her Small Business of the Week. Throughout this Congress, Ranking Member Ernst will be recognizing a small business in each of Iowa’s 99 counties.
Geater Machining and Manufacturing has been in operation for over 61 years and spans three generations. The company has grown into a remarkable small business with a global reach through the hard work and dedication of the Geater family and their team. Ranking Member Ernst is proud to recognize their commitment to providing high quality products and supporting the next generation of high-tech leaders in Iowa.
Specializing in precision machines and fabricated parts for the aerospace, electronics, and high-tech industries, Geater Machining and Manufacturing has its roots firmly planted in Independence, Iowa. The company is dedicated to giving back to the Buchanan County community through various student outreach opportunities such as an apprenticeship program, job shadowing, and academic speakers.
The company’s products are used in equipment around the world, including in helicopter radios used to transport the Navy SEAL team that killed Osama Bin Laden. Ranking Member Ernst will continue to recognize more Iowa small businesses across the state with her Small Business of the Week award.
