Manufacturing and Assembly
GLI has used cellular manufacturing, quality-at-the-source and lean production systems for over 20 years. It's simple: We believe that good people will consistently produce high-quality products if given the tools and resources they need. Therefore, we have created a flexible, dynamic workplace designed to satisfy customers and provide fulfilling work for our employees.

Engineering
Sometimes GLI engineering is aimed externally, giving us the opportunity to evaluate customers' product designs to offer cost-reduction suggestions based on our extensive knowledge of manufacturing cost drivers. In addition to analyzing component parts, GLI can assist with programs for complex systems involving standard and custom products. We have the capability to move flawlessly from a customer design through manufacturing process development, production, assembly, testing and delivery.

Importing
GLI imports machined parts from our global supply chain when doing so provides a manufacturing or cost advantage for us and a benefit for our customers. We recognize that importing from off-shore suppliers is a reality of present-day manufacturing, and it's a practice we use to the advantage of our customers.

Quality Systems and Certifications
At GLI, adherence to the highest possible standards is a given. We build in measures to ensure quality at the beginning of every project, product and system. As an ISO 9001:2008 certified manufacturer, GLI uses statistical process control methods to reduce and eliminate variation in our processes and products.

Systems and EDI
Our customers, suppliers and employees are impressed with our integrated systems — both electronic and process-based. Our systems are focused on mistake-proofing, eliminating waste, and making sure working people get the right information and tools in the right place at the right time.
