Social & Economic Development
The work of developing ourselves is never done. We change and our communities change with us. Our priorities evolve as we mature, as do the priorities of communities. GSM has provided employment, opportunity and support to individuals and organizations in South Bend, Indiana for over 90 years and counting, and for the last eight years, to our people in Tomah, Wisconsin. Our employees have a voice in what we support, each person representing some larger interest in our community.
As a contributor to the quality of life in the communities our facilities reside, our goal is to succeed, and with that success to make sure those who work for us and live with us succeed, too.
Areas of Involvement
First and foremost, the community views us as supporters of education and advocates for education reform. In addition to providing generous financial support for private and public education, employees serve in the following organizations: New Schools Inc, SBCSC New Tech Advisory Council, SBCSC Career & Technical Education Committee, Boys & Girls Clubs of SJC, the National Association of Manufacturers, and Advisory Board for Purdue C.T.E.
In addition, we use our on-campus Learning & Discovery Center to provide continuing education opportunities for our employees and a meeting space for community and industry groups.
General Stamping and Metalworks’ leadership is actively involved in several community organizations, including the St. Joseph County Boys and Girls Club, Chamber of Commerce, Fabricators and Manufacturers Association and Precision Metalforming Association. We sponsor two parties per year for one of the local branches of the Boys and Girls Club, including a summer and holiday party. Several employees volunteer to organize, set up and host the parties.

For almost 95 years you’ve known us as General Sheet Metal Works. Today, a new leading edge facility, a new name, buttress our enduring commitment to providing the highest level of service, responsiveness, quality execution, supply chain integration and breadth of fabrication.

September 15, 2016
Dear Valued Customers, Suppliers, and Business Partners:
We are excited to announce we have changed our name from General Sheet Metal Works, Inc., to General Stamping & Metalworks, Inc., effective September 15, 2016. This change more accurately expresses the core of our capabilities as a full-service metal fabricator providing parts to OEM’s worldwide.
Our new name reflects the evolution of our operational expertise, which shifted dramatically in 1953, when we left the sheet metal business entirely to pursue the fabrication of metal parts for a diverse range of customers producing products for lawn and garden, agriculture, automotive aftermarket, and other consumer-focused industries. Today, we are a major supplier to the solar infrastructure market as well as serving emerging industries looking to prototype and scale new products.
For your convenience, our Internet address remains www.gsmwinc.com. Company email addresses will also remain the same. Our corporate address remains as follows until December 1, 2016:
General Stamping & Metalworks
1902 South Main Street
South Bend, IN 46613
After December 1, 2016 our address will be:
General Stamping & Metalworks

South Bend, IN 46628
Our phone number will remain unchanged:
