Our Foundation

Since our founding in 1954 by Robert S. Greiner and K. Kenneth Tarbell, G&T Industries has been dedicated to the craft of foam fabrication. Initially catering to the demand for post-war contract office seating foam, we swiftly recognized opportunities for expansion into many industries. From furniture to packaging, medical to transportation, and beyond, our proficiency in polyurethane and polyethylene foam fabrication has laid the foundation for our diverse industry portfolio. Here’s to 70 years of excellence!

G&T Industries is committed to innovation and customer service excellence. Whether it’s polyethylene fabrication or cross-linked foam, we are always exploring new materials. Our investment in cutting-edge equipment has helped us grow over the years. Under the leadership of Chairman Emeritus Bob Wood, we have become a people-centric organization focused on providing unique solutions to complex problems.

International Sourcing Pioneers

We established World Resource Partners to respond to the global market’s demand for streamlined sourcing solutions. This subsidiary specializes in sourcing high-quality components from Asia, empowering businesses to access global resources without compromising quality or reliability.

On January 1, 2018, Crane Interiors joined the G&T Industries family, enriching G&T’s portfolio. This acquisition strategically bolstered G&T’s position in marine upholstery, marking a significant step forward for the company in this sector.
