Business Update Publication


The Business Update recently did a special that featured G&T Industries’ 60th anniversary. The content inside the feature talks about the past, present, and future of G&T Industries.

G&T was founded in 1954 by Robert S. Greiner and K. Kenneth Tarbell. Bob Wood, President until 2005, joined the company a few years later with a dream and an idea of polyurethane foam. Now, 60 years later the dream evolved into the company we are today: a full service foam manufacturer offering much more than just foam products to furniture foam, packaging foam, medical foam, automotive foam, and marine foam customers. In addition, G&T’s international sourcing services provide tooled aluminum die cast, self skinning polyurethane, and plastic injection molding components to retail display, furniture, and medical customers across North America.

As the founders’ dream continued to grow so did G&T Industries. Starting with just one location in West Michigan we evolved into three strategically placed plants in Byron Center, Michigan; Reading, Pennsylvania; Jasper, Indiana and Ningbo, China.

G&T continues to branch out and meet new customer demands. As our company moves forward, we are excited to see what is in store for us next.
