Nelson Global Products

Nelson Global Products manufactures tubes used in heavy and medium duty trucks and off-road vehicles.

Nelson Global Products, headquartered in Stoughton, Wisconsin, is a leading manufacturer of tubes used in emissions, coolant, heating, air intake and exhaust handling applications.

Nelson has a strong reputation for flexible manufacturing capabilities, on-time delivery and a unique process that permits complex manufacturing of very large diameter tubes. Nelson operates facilities in Australia, China, India, and the United States (in Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee and Wisconsin).

Wind Point formed Nelson (f/k/a Global Tube) in August 2010. Our value creation plan for Nelson includes capitalizing on the impending cyclical uptrend in heavy duty truck and off-road vehicle demand, improving manufacturing productivity, adding new customers, and completing add-on acquisitions. The Nelson platform consists of four acquisitions completed to date: Global Tube Form, Peoria Tube Forming Corporation, the exhaust business of Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI), and Morton Industries.

Wind Point formed Nelson Global Products in partnership with CEO Tom Gosnell. Tom, a 30-year veteran of the commercial vehicle industry, was most recently President of ArvinMeritor’s $4 billion Commercial Vehicle Systems Group.
