When General Manufacturing was founded 54 years ago, we primarily manufactured nuts and bolts, which can be found in numerous bridges throughout the Pittsburgh area. When the steel mills closed in the 1970’s our company needed to adapt, we took the direction of Defense Contracting. Our primary jobs consisted of Navy Nuclear and Level 1 Sub safe. We then moved to working primarily on small arms repair parts in the 1990’s.
The American tragedy of September 11, 2011 led to the growth of our company. We found ourselves needing to expand, not only in our machine shop, but also in our assembly areas. At this time we grew from simply machining our parts to also assembling everything in house.
In 2005 we were awarded our first 60mm mortar mount contract. This was, at that time, the largest contract GMC had ever accepted. There were numerous assemblies that required precise machining, this led to another expansion of our machine shop.
November of 2006 began a rough time for our family business, Joe Fastuca was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Joe was unable to win the battle with cancer and passed away in April 2007. Our company was yet again faced with another road block.
GMC took the tools that were put in to place by Joe in previous years and grew the family business to an entirely new level.
As of today, General Manufacturing is a leading manufacturer of all three mortar mount sizes: 60mm, 81mm, 120mm in the United States. We are dedicated to providing our War Fighters with the highest quality assemblies a soldier could ask for.
We are a constantly evolving company who, when faced with hard times, or National tragedies, will make every effort to lend our helping hands to who ever may be in need.
Our company was built on family values and to this day that pride is instilled in our employees and shown in the quality of work our company produces. We take a great deal of pride in the accomplishments we have made and are constantly looking around the corner for the next opportunity to grow yet again!
