Frequently Asked Questions
There are a number of ways to improve production performance, including material upgrades, wear coatings, cryogenic treatments, and/or surface treatments. Edge geometry modifications are another area to explore, as well, to improve production performance.
We have 3 manufacturing facilities to accommodate competitive pricing, purchasing of low volume quantities, and quick delivery. Our plants are in Savannah, NY, Sheffield, England, and Indore, India.
Pricing is often influenced by volume – the more pieces we can run in a batch, typically the lower our production costs are. We do offer volume price breaks, and we also have a robust blanket order process available to help you take advantage of volume pricing.
Yes, we offer vendor managed stocking programs. Ask your sales representative today if this applies to you.
Standard lead time can vary by product type, but as a general rule of thumb, lead times for items that are not in stock (and we stock 50% of our annual sales volume) run 4 to 6 weeks after receipt of your order.
Testimonials from Our Customers
TGW has been amazing to work with. They always take really good care of me and get my orders out on time. My rep and a few others are amazing. I never have to worry about whether my product will be sent out on time because they take care of all of that!
Renee – Food Processing
I recommend TGW because they are knowledgeable and they take care of problems quickly.
Robert – Food Processing
TGW is fast, efficient, easy to work with. They have a fast response time, and their prices are good. TGW is good at cross referencing other manufacturer’s knives with their knives too.
Cindy - OEM
They service the equipment, they have the knives he needs, they are good quality, and the prices are good. If the parts are in stock, then the lead time is very short.
Chris – Printing
TGW is fast, the quote turn around time is quick. When I call on the phone and ask questions, the customer service representatives are knowledgeable and fast to get answers back.
Nancy – Food Processing
My representative always answers right away with emails and if he doesn’t know something, he always gets someone involved right away and gets the answers. He is always accurate with delivery dates.
Joe – Packaging
I recommend TGW all the time! In fact, I recommended them to twelve other plants, many of whom became customers. If I had to give them a score from 1 to 10, 10 being the best, I would give TGW a ten based on quality, pricing and fairly quick delivery.
Richard – Converting
They had what we needed and we could get it in plenty of time. It was in stock and that is most important.
Ralph – Food Processing
TGW is very informative. The quote was fast and the pricing was good.
Greg – Packaging
TGW’s blades cut better and are welded together better than other suppliers.
Scott – Food Processing
