East West Manufacturing was founded in 2001 with the simple goal of helping companies become more competitive by manufacturing their components, sub-assemblies, and finished products in lower cost parts of the world to Western quality standards. We provide our customers access to a global supply chain. We focus on engineered products and have our own operations in the US, China, Vietnam, and India.
Founded by Scott Ellyson and Jeff Sweeney, the pair has over 50 years of solid engineering and offshore manufacturing experience. This experience gives customers the opportunity to work with engineers who understand their products from a technical point of view.

East West Manufacturing has grown at record speed over the past few years. Global headquarters is based in Atlanta, Georgia. The corporate culture at East West can be described as transparent, competitive, and rewarding. Transparency is very important to East West co-founders Scott Ellyson and Jeff Sweeney, not only for our customers but for our team members as well. Each quarter, Scott and Jeff sit down with the entire East West team and review the progress on organizational goals for the year. East West has always fostered an open-door policy atmosphere for managers to be more accessible for team members and to help create an open flow of communication.
Our Atlanta office has open concept work spaces and features two collaboration rooms for teams to hold meetings. East West encourages and promotes team camaraderie with fun quarterly events such as paint-balling, a friendly grill-off competition, scavenger hunts, family fun days at local parks, and our yearly holiday event which in the past has included caroling in assisted living homes, shopping for families in need, and organizing Santa visits for children.
East West communicates the importance of our Values and rewards those team members who share our values. Each quarter, the East West team nominates the one person who exemplifies our core values and sets an outstanding example of “living” the Values at East West. This “MVP” receives the coveted MVP trophy as well as a cash prize. East West strives to hire team members who not only align with our values, but add value and strategic diversity to our organization.
