THANK YOU to GK Machine, Inc.
The October 6, 2017 Quarterly Partners Meeting and celebration of National Manufacturing Day at GK Machine was eye-opening and amazing. Many thanks to those who were able to attend and experience this local resource first hand. Our hosts treated us to an extensive tour of their operations, pointing out at every turn where STEM plays a critical role in their manufacturing and design operations. From high school graduates on the production floor to engineers with advanced degrees, we met employees from every background who uses STEM skills every day in the production of a huge range of products. Many thanks to [GK employees] for organizing the day for us, and for hosting dozens of regional high school students earlier in the day in celebration of National Manufacturing Day. GK Machine is a great regional partner! (October 2017)
We at Omega Morgan would like to thank GK Machine for the service you provided on a recent project we had with a local general contractor. When we were in a spot and needed a fabrication company that could work within our time frame – which was ever changing – GK Machine never failed us. The nature of this project was such that we weren’t going to know we were complete; until we were complete. Numerous calls to [our sales contacts] at 4 in the afternoon requesting parts the next day were the standard, not the exception. While I couldn’t always get the parts in the time I was asking for, GK always did everything they could to get them to me as quickly as possible. To be fair, no fab shop could have worked within the timing that I was asking for! I am often on the other end of the phone when those calls come in and the amount on our invoice doesn’t make the task any easier.
I’m sure [our sales contacts] were not working alone so please, forward a “thank you” to the whole team! While you can’t spend a thank you, please know that we appreciate you and will look to you again in the near future!
