No One Beats Gateway Metals on Service

logoIt’s not news that the tooling industry is more competitive than ever.  Companies are not just facing competition in their local region, but also on a national and international level.

This is the basis for Gateway Metals, Inc. (GMI) pledge to help our customers stay competitive.  GMI’s 50,000 square foot facility, centrally located in St Louis, Missouri, allows for a 1 day transit time to 70% of the country.

“When you combine our 2 millions pounds of inventory comprised of tool steel, mold steel, and die cast steel with our 24 hour cutting schedule, it allows us to ship orders fast.” says Dave Biscan, President of GMI.  “Then when you factor in a one day transit time to 70% of the country, customers get what they want fast.  This gives our customers a competitive advantage by allowing them to ship product out faster to their customers.”

Fast service is just one of the ways GMI helps customers stay competitive.  Precision ground blocks, precision ground bars, non standard sizes, band saw and carbide saw cutting (no flame cut edges), and a quick and knowledgeable sales staff are others.

“All we ask is that customers give us a chance.” says Biscan.  “When they do, they find that our service really does provide an advantage.”
