UNION, MO, June 8, 2015 – Gateway Extrusions, a fast-growing extruder of small diameter aluminum profiles, has embarked on a significant expansion of its Union, MO facility. The company recently purchased its 129,000-ft2 production plant that it had been leasing in the Union Industrial Park, as well as adjacent properties, and is nearing completion of renovations to accommodate additional equipment coming online this year.
Gateway Extrusions is renovating its recently purchased Union, MO facility (above) to accommodate new equipment and add services to meet growing customer demand.
“Gateway Extrusions has seen considerable growth in its sales and the variety of markets it serves, a result of the strategic plans put in motion over the past several years,” said Tom Ziegler, Vice President for Gateway Extrusions. “This investment
