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.
