Statement of Purpose

Bowden exists not just to make parts, but rather to serve people.

Our purpose is to establish, maintain and grow mutually beneficial relationships — with our customers, with our teammates and their families, with our vendors and with the community.

Who We Are

We’re real people. You can tell by the way we do business that we genuinely care about our jobs, our clients and each other. There’s a feeling of family, both within our specialized teams and company-wide, including our leadership. Just ask our loyal employees, many of whom have been with us for decades.

We’ve been around a while. Who we are today reflects a history of constant learning and improving since 1952.

We take partnerships and teamwork seriously. We seek lasting relationships, not just with our clients, but also with our own employees and in any interactions with other companies. To that end, we follow values that make us easy to work with and ultimately support our company purpose.

We use solid systems. Everything we do is systematic — and not just on the floor. Our AS9100 certificate attests to the audited integrity of our production control systems, but we have unique, organized procedures for much more than that. For example, all customers automatically receive weekly status reports on their projects. We’ve fine-tuned all our processes to consistently establish, then meet and exceed customer expectations.

We communicate openly. We’ll tell you what you need to know, even if we know it won’t make us popular. Both internally and externally, we believe it’s important to deal in facts, share what’s going on and keep everyone in the loop whenever possible.
