Member Company CEO Earns Spot on Prestigious List

Tom Shorma, CEO of WCCO Belting in Wahpeton, N.D., has been named to the prestigious “Makers for American Manufacturing” list—a collection of 25 executives identified by Chief Executive as reshaping their industries and engaging in robust trends in manufacturing.
The publication celebrated Shorma and WCCO for its innovation and growth in diverse markets.
“Everything we do in our plant is unique, and literally no one else in the world can do what we do,” Shorma told the magazine.
The article said WCCO Belting braves export markets with a sales team that can speak 14 different languages, and while tariffs have been a hindrance, the company today ships to more than 20 countries.
“We’re based in a very small, rural town about as far away as you can be from ocean ports and still be in the U.S.,” Shorma says. “But we embrace global trade and innovation.”
