About Us

GFM was founded after a market-driven reality suggested industries would benefit from increased competitiveness within the fineblank stamping segment. GFM follows the design parameters and product requirements traditionally specified for fineblanking, yielding a smooth-edge surface with a very repeatable, engineering-accepted alternative commonly known today as “Gripflow.”

Our staff has significant years of experience in many diverse areas, which complements our core business. These areas include progressive stamping, fineblanking, tool building and seating mechanisms. GFM’s knowledge is transferred to support your unique product requirements, eliminate unnecessary costs and ensure a successful program.
