CINCINNATI, OH --(Marketwired - May 09, 2016) - General Tool Company has officially become registered in System for Award Management (SAM) and is currently active to accept government contracts, thanks to US Federal Contractor Registration.

General Tool Company of Cincinnati, Ohio has been an award-winning contract job shop for nearly 70 years. Its workforce of 225 employees has the expertise to supply one-off and larger quantities of parts and assemblies in all types of metals and composites. Its fab and machine shops make larger parts (over 24" to 15') that meet all the critical certifications for flight and defense hardware.

"We maintain our small company values, and give our customers open access to all team members," says General Tool Company VP of Strategic Sales, Peter Borden. "As a small business in our third generation of family ownership, our company values of teamwork, respect, and cooperation build close relationships and trust between our team and our clients."

General Tool Company, which works with clients around the United States, has already secured contracts with the Defense Logistics Agency, the U.S. Navy, and the Naval Supply Systems Command. It is the single-source provider for 9140 Gen Sets for Bath Iron Works and for the EMALS hardware for CVN 79.

Since 1987, General Tool Company has delivered more than 220 Gen Sets to the Navy.

"General Tool Company embodies what I love best about small businesses," said US Federal Contractor Registration President Eric Knellinger. "They treat each of their customers like they're part of the family, and make sure that their customers are beyond satisfied with the services and products they receive."

General Tool Company's customers echo Knellinger's comments.

"Working with you was an asset to our company and also a pleasure," said the sub sea engineering group lead for Raytheon. The production project manager at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory said, "Without the continuing interest and sustained help of General Tool Company, a project of this magnitude could never have succeeded."

The Program Manager for Rolls-Royce Marine North America said: "Through major redesigns and change orders, General Tool Company has met the challenge. Having tested more than 200 Gen Sets to date, while managing more than 2,500 details per unit, [they] have not missed a required ship date."

As for working with US Federal Contractor Registration, Borden said: "I have found everyone to be helpful, energetic, and smart in helping us grow our business. I'd recommend then to anyone."
