Gemcor has been making automated fastening systems since 1937, when our founder, Thomas Speller Sr., invented the process to boost aircraft production during World War II. But that doesn’t make us old-fashioned – far from it. Today, our team of more than 30 engineers continues making our fastening processes faster, more accurate and more reliable. Our pioneering, all-electric process remains the industry standard for automated aircraft assembly and our machines touch virtually every modern western commercial airplane.
In honor of the automated fastening founder from Gemcor, the Thomas Speller Sr. award recognizes unusual achievements of an individual who, through dedicated service, tireless efforts, high ideals, and vision, contributed significantly to the implementation of manufacturing processes and methodologies in the dedicated discipline of automated fastening machines and their applications.
This award was established in 1983 and is administered by the Aerospace Automated Fastening Committee. It is presented each year at either the Aerospace Manufacturing Automated Fastening Exhibition or the SAE AeroTech Congress.
We foster a culture of excellence in customer satisfaction, providing opportunities for growth and security to all our employees and shareholders. Our mission is to be the best in aero-structure and assembly automation while increasing value-add to our customers.
Gemcor facilitates world-class quality and continuous improvement throughout our product development, CNC solutions, robotic cells and custom applications. Our machine up-time is unmatched. Our customers hail Gemcor as being superior in reliability. Gemcor also employs top-talent, field service technicians readily available to be onsite anywhere in the world within 24 hours.
