The renovation of the GMTA facility in Ann Arbor, Mich., is now complete with plans in the works for future expansion of the campus. Additional floorspace, showroom capacity and training facilities, plus more personnel, are planned, according to company V.P. Scott Knoy. 

In that regard, two personnel announcements were made by GMTA company president Walter Friedrich. Doug VanDeven is now GMTA parts manager, and Shawn Wilkin is now GMTA service manager. 

Mr. Friedrich says, “These two positions are essential parts of our business, as they reflect our company’s image to our customers.”  

GMTA will now represent K+G (Kristen + Goermann) carbide inserts, toolholders and cutters, plus offer a new line of GMTA Scudding tools. An agreement negotiation to represent Naxos grinding wheels and hone rings is underway, as well.
