Aluminum fabrication firm Gateway Extrusions of Union, Mo., hosted an open house on September 28, 2018 to mark its recent $15 million expansion and its 15th year since opening in 2003. Customers, vendors, members of the local business community and government officials joined Gateway’s management team for tours of the facility, demonstrations of its new equipment and a networking luncheon.
Tom Ziegler, president of operations, gave a presentation on the history of Gateway’s growth, its sizable investments in property and equipment in Union, and the company’s plans and opportunities for further growth.
“The aluminum extrusion manufacturing industry is growing in Union,” said Ziegler. “Gateway’s investment of $15 million in new equipment and additional property and buildings means we are here to stay with plenty of room to grow in the future. Union is a terrific location to grow for many reasons. The labor force, the supportive business community, proximity to markets in every direction, the cost of operations and the quality of life have made this the perfect choice for Gateway.”
“Our customers and employees can look forward to further improvements to our facility, such as a new administrative office addition, enhancements to the exterior parking and landscaped areas, and renovations to the adjacent 200,000-square-foot buildings Gateway purchased,” added Ziegler.
