About Us


East / West Industries

With over 30 years’ experience in strategic and operational leadership, Teresa Ferraro and Joe Spinosa are driving East/West’s growth and expansion.

It takes a lot to design and manufacture products that save aircrew lives. It takes experience…expertise…and a personal commitment to doing the right thing.

East/West Industries is a small woman-owned business distinguished by technical excellence and best value products. Everything we do is built on a foundation of hard work, integrity, and a very personal commitment to doing the right thing for the aerospace customers we serve, because “saving aircrew lives is our first concern.”

These values were embodied and instilled by founders Dom and Mary Spinosa, and nearly 50 years later their guiding principles are alive and well under the leadership of President Teresa Ferraro and Vice President of Business Development Joe Spinosa and dozens of talented team members. From humble beginnings manufacturing connectors, East/West today is globally recognized for our expertise designing and manufacturing aircraft seats and other products critical to crew safety and survival. We’ve become the trusted provider of choice for the industry’s most progressive new aircraft and a go-to small prime partner for customers in need of a fully capable problem solver willing to jump in and get the job done.

We have what it takes. We do what it takes. Whatever it takes.
