About Us

East / West Industries

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 woman-owned small 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; over five decades later, Dom and Mary’s guiding principles are alive and well under the leadership of CEO and President Teresa Ferraro and dozens of talented team members. From humble beginnings manufacturing connectors, East/West today is globally recognized for our expertise in 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 advanced new aircraft and a go-to small prime partner for customers needing 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.
