About Fairway

Fairway Products, a division of Acme Group, has been proudly serving automotive, marine, furniture, industrial and consumer clients from our Michigan based facility since 1970. As a problem solver and capability company, we produce unique non-apparel products for our customers. We started out manufacturing shop aprons for auto assembly plants, as well as applicators for paste wax, fireplace log totes and filtration bags. That was just the beginning. Fairway Products has grown over the years and today has 2 shifts and over 120 associates producing a wide array of products for an extensive customer base.

Our Core Values

Our Advantage

Fairway’s modern cut, sew and assemble capabilities, combined with the synergy we have developed with our sister divisions Acme Mills, Great Lakes Filters and Ervins Group, gives us the quality oriented, cost efficient background to manufacture components, sub-assemblies and finished products to the specifications of our customers. We work with woven fabrics, non-woven, vinyl, leather, foam, laminates, molded plastic, metal stampings and even wood fiber components.

Our Certifications

Fairway Products is an ISO 9001: 2008 certified company. Our 85,000 SF modern manufacturing facility utilizes programmable CAD driven die cutting and Gerber fabric cutting machines, as well as fabric slitting and assembly that includes high speed programmable sewing machines. We also have custom designed equipment that attaches hooks or other fastening devices used on our seat suspensions. In addition, we have developed unique assembly fixtures and upholstery aids to produce office furniture products.
