Northwind's Story

cnc laser sparks

Northwind was founded in 1994 by brothers, Mark and Tim Ogier.

Northwind, Inc. operates from a modern, climate-controlled, 17,000 sq. ft. facility located atop a hill in the scenic Ozark Mountains in Arkansas. Offering CNC machining, CNC laser cutting, fabrication, assembly and inspection - Northwind, Inc. is truly your full service shop for high quality products.

From conception, Northwind was focused on providing high quality machined parts for the local poultry industry including custom stainless steel conveyor systems. With quality products and service our customer base quickly grew from local to national and international. We continue our core business of design and manufacturing of custom stainless steel sanitary conveyors and support equipment for the food industry with customer service as top priority.

Northwind designed and manufactures the patented Wintec Bagging System, used to package a broad array of frozen poultry products. The Wintec bagging system is in use in many poultry plants across the continental USA and in Mexico.

Expanding the line of products we offer, Northwind designed a line of high end outdoor kitchens made from 304 Stainless Steel, built on the same standards as NEMA 4X enclosures. These cabinets and islands are branded as Outdoor Stainless. You can view the Outdoor Stainless line at

With a vision for the future the Ogier's expanded Northwind's facilities in 2007. In 2008 they increased the capacity of the CNC Machine shop and became ISO 9001:2000 compliant. With the larger facility and new capabilities in machining Northwind began to work with the aerospace industry.

Northwind has gone GREEN.
Northwind believes that we must do all we can to protect the precious resources this wonderful planet provides. Since inception, we have looked for ways to limit consumption of resources and "Green" methods of dealing with waste.

From the start Northwind recycled scrap metal. In 2007 we expanded our recycle program to include UHMW plastic. Continuing our recycle efforts we began to recycle paper in 2008. Electrical consumption is closely monitored and conservation technology is utilized.

Whenever possible, Northwind operates within a paperless system. Through the use of email, we encourage electronic transfers of such information as purchase orders, invoices, statements, trade publications, etc. and maintain the majority of our process support documentation (i.e. procedures, manuals, etc.) in electronic form on Northwind's secure server. These practices have significantly reduced the amount of paper consumed.

With the understanding that being "Green" is not a destination but an on going process, Northwind continues to look for ways to be good stewards of natural resources.

Recognizing the youth of today is our future.

In 2002 Northwind established the Nick Ogier Scholarship. Each year one deserving student from Alpena High School who excels in science is awarded the scholarship to assist them in continuing their education.

The business activities of Northwind, Inc. do not constitute the practice of Engineering in the State of Arkansas, nor do we represent our services as such as we do not employ Professional Engineers.
