Gardner Manufacturing Company has been in sheet metal custom manufacturing business for over 80 years serving such major industries as defense and aerospace, electronics, machine tool, transportation, pollution abatement and environmental control, printing, processing, construction, and material handling. The key to our successfully serving these industries for so many years is an experienced design engineering team coupled with a modern and completely equipped sheet metal fabrication shop, weld shop, and paint facility. All this allows us the opportunity to assure you that we can offer you completely satisfactory products which will meet your specifications. Fabrication Operating a vertically integrated plant, Gardner has the capability to manufacture, finish and assemble the highest quality environmental products from steel, aluminum and stainless steel sheet metal. All plant processes are CNC controlled to ensure consistency and to enable us to conform to our customers' requirements. This includes laser cutting equipment, precision-controlled punch presses and the brake presses which form the metal to product specifications. Engineering Gardner's strength in engineering enables us to design systems that specifically address our customers' needs. Working from customer prints, specifications or samples, our experienced design and engineering team utilizes the latest Solid Works 3D and CAD/CAM system to develop solutions that will help improve the quality of the work environment. Our engineering expertise also ensures thorough and timely response when technical support is required. AWS Certified Welding Following the cutting, punching and forming processes, the metal proceeds to welding. At this stage, experienced craftsmen use modern arcweld and spot weld techniques to perform sturdy weldments which are integral to the overall durability of Gardner products. Paintline In addition to Gardner's iron and zinc phosphate surface treatment capabilities, the line offers powder coating technology. This, combined with the fact that each Gardner product is painted inside and out, gives our products extra corrosion and chip resistance to promote longer life. Silk screening and custom color mixing is also available. From air-dried permanent lacquers to oven-baked enamels, Gardner offers paint finishes that offer consumer appeal and help extend product life. Our automated cleaning, painting and baking facility has a sophisticated line of over 1,400 feet. Quality Control ISO 9001-2000 At Gardner, our goal is to provide complete customer satisfaction through safe, efficient and trouble-free products. Meeting this goal means implementing quality control procedures from beginning to end. On the front end, we assess the raw materials we source. Then, each stage of fabrication is evaluated for accuracy and conformance to customer specifications. Performance testing is conducted before shipment. The care which Gardner takes to maintain quality throughout our manufacturing process helps reduce the need for extra QC checks by the customer.
