Gateway Extrusions names Thomas Ziegler new President

gateway-1-23-17.jpgJanuary 23, 2017 -Gateway Extrusions, Union, Missouri, is pleased to announce that Thomas Ziegler (pictured) has been named the company's new President. Ziegler has over 30 years of experience in the aluminum extrusion and fabrication industry and has been with Gateway Extrusions for 11 years. Coming on board in 2006, Ziegler previously held the titles of General Manager and Vice President. He has directed progressive company expansions, added experienced managers and employees, and he has been instrumental in developing new markets for the company's extrusion and finishing services.

Under Ziegler's leadership, Gateway has expanded from exclusively serving its parent company to serving many companies in a broad array of industries such as automotive, shelving and storage, office furniture, displays, marine transportation, fencing and railing, lighting, and other window and window accessory manufacturers.

"I am proud to be part of Gateway Extrusions, and now to lead it into the future," said Ziegler. "Through hard work and perseverance, the company has grown steadily from start up in 2003.  Initially, we had a limited product line serving a small customer base, and now we provide a wide variety of extrusions to customers throughout the country. Our current expansion and growth activities are positioning Gateway to be a national leader in the industry, with the capacity, services and quality our customers have come to expect."

Starting in 2015, Ziegler has been responsible for leading another significant multi-year phased expansion of the company. Gateway acquired its existing building which it had been leasing and bought the adjacent property for possible future expansion. The company invested in a new 7-inch aluminum extrusion press and renovated the building to accommodate a new 9-in. aluminum extrusion press recently installed, as well as a new vertical powder coat paint line that will be operational soon.

Prior to joining Gateway Extrusions, Mr. Ziegler held positions of progressively greater responsibility at Alcoa; most recently he was Operations Manager for Alcoa’s 500,000 square foot extrusion manufacturing facility in Georgia. There he directed the production of 50 million pounds of aluminum building and construction products annually, increasing employee involvement and improving safety. Also while with Alcoa, he led the conversion of an existing Mississippi aluminum extrusion plant into an architectural storefront systems manufacturing facility.
