Comprehensive precision sheet metal fabricators

What began over 50 years ago as a small, family-owned business has become the premier ISO 9001-2015 registered, 104,000 sq. ft, one-stop precision sheet metal fabrication shop. From our three clean, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities based in New England, we serve start-ups to Fortune 500 companies around the world in the medical, military, environmental, and other high-tech industries.

Although our business has evolved, our values remain the same—operating on three key business principles: Capability, Quality, and Reliability. A relentless focus on customer service has earned us a reputation among generations for delivering superb quality and on-time delivery.


The industry’s only one-stop-shop precision sheet metal fabricators

Being the industry’s only one-stop-shop precision sheet metal fabricators means that our clients must deal with only one vendor, write only one P.O., and rely on only one partner for end-to-end production of their parts.

Creating operational efficiencies and meeting our customer’s greatest needs are the hallmarks of our business, and we are pioneers in accurately converting drawings to delivery. Utilizing the latest technologies in our two modern manufacturing facilities requires a versatile and highly-trained workforce to produce exceptionally engineered products while promising a superior customer service experience.

Our History

GTR Manufacturing is a family-owned business that, over the last 50+ years, has grown to become the industry’s most trusted, innovative, and preferred precision sheet metal fabricators.


GTR Established

GTR Manufacturing established and named for the initials of the surnames of our founders: Fran Godfrey, Ray Timmons, and Rudy Reed.


Expansion of Services

We expanded our services and acquired a paint shop in Abington, Massachusetts to serve our clients better. GTR Finishing was born.


Rapid Growth

Growing at a rapid pace, we built a 52,000 sq. ft facility in Brockton, Massachusetts.


Footprint Consolidation

Serving more clients, we expanded our building site by 22,000 sq. ft and moved GTR Finishing under the same roof as Manufacturing to develop, fabricate, and finish all in one space.


Electromechanical Industry

Entered into the electromechanical assembly industry with custom cables, wire harness assembly, sub assembly, and complete box builds—becoming a fully integrated fabrication shop.


Changing of the Guard

Handing the future of the business to the next generation of leadership, GTR was sold to Jim Craig, Corinne King, and Bill Klaila.
