Our History

Universal Systems USA Inc. is a family run and owned business. Our founder, Jimmy Haythornthwaite, became involved in urethane manufacturing over 25 years ago. Under the name of Tilton Engineering, Jimmy's involvement continued as the company progressed, grew, and eventually changed names. In 2007, he chose to be more than just involved, and he bought the company. Under the Universal System USA Inc. name, we have grown not only in the food belt industry but with a wide range of small endless belts as well. Jimmy handed the business down to his two daughters, who are ever expanding the business to reach even more unique belting industries as well as, making Universal System USA Inc. a top leading urethane belting company.
