The Gund Company is a vertically integrated manufacturer and fabricator of engineered material solutions. We operate 8 manufacturing facilities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China.
Our core focus regarding materials manufacturing is application engineering. We manufacture materials that meet or exceed common material standards as well as the most demanding electrical and mechanical requirements. As a lean enterprise, The Gund Company is dedicated to a culture of continuous improvement. This drive to continuously improve has resulted in the development of numerous custom materials with unique mechanical and electrical properties that fit our customer’s specific applications.
The Gund Company also operates a laboratory, used for material research, development, and testing. Our testing equipment measures both the electrical and mechanical properties of the materials we develop, so our team of research engineers can perform side-by-side materials comparisons. This regular testing helps us understand customer operating environments and opportunities to develop new materials.
