Founded in 1954, GMN has grown from a few employees in a small facility in Seattle, WA to more than 1,000 employees spanning seven plants: San Jose, CA, Monroe, NC, Beaverton, OR, Singapore, China and two in Seattle.
In an effort to better serve our clients, we’ve evolved from creating nameplates to providing a wide variety of custom solutions from small components to completely assembled devices. The company continues to grow its capabilities to meet evolving customer and industry needs.
Today, all of GMN’s facilities are ISO-9001 certified and operate under Continuous Improvement, Lean and Six Sigma manufacturing principles. GMN’s focus on quality assurance and workplace efficiency has guided our success in highly regulated industries, like medical and aerospace. In addition, many GMN constructions are listed with Underwriters Laboratories and approved by the Canadian Standards Association.
We are proud of the company we keep. GMN has been awarded preferred vendor status by the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group, Varian Medical Systems, and Rockwell Automation, among others. We have also been recognized with supplier awards from some of the world’s top companies including John Deere, Mitsubishi and The Boeing Company.
Although GMN has experienced impressive growth, the company’s goals remain the same. Each day, premier quality parts are produced for customers who are industry leaders in their own right—customers who demand a high level of quality and innovative service. We are proud to be one of the finest “one-call, one-stop” design and manufacturing corporations of our type in the world.
