GAM Hosts New Manufacturing Open House Event
Mount Prospect, IL – GAM hosted an Open House event to showcase recent manufacturing expansion and new service programs at its Mount Prospect, IL headquarters.
A number of dignitaries attended the Open House including U.S. Congressman Bob Dold, Mt. Prospect Mayor Arlene Juracek, Mark Dietzen of Senator Mark Kirk’s office, District representative Victoria Williams, along with members of the press.
Mayor Juracek said, “GAM is an example of success that can be achieved when the entrepreneurial spirit takes advantage of today’s high-tech world.”
The focus of the event was to demonstrate GAM’s transformation from light production to full manufacturing that increased capacity more than 350%, while reducing lead times to less than 1 week for popular gearboxes and servo couplings used in automation applications. GAM invested several million dollars in the expansion.
“I am extremely proud of our team and glad we got the opportunity to show our guests what we accomplished,” said Craig Van den Avont, President of GAM, “It is important for our government representatives to see firsthand what it takes for U.S. manufacturers to be competitive in the global marketplace.”
