GWS Tool Group “Essential” Status & Operational Readiness


Date: 3/24/2020

To Whom It May Concern:

GWS Tool Group is a manufacturer of precision cutting tools used by manufacturers in virtually every vertical, including and especially the aerospace and defense, medical device and energy sectors. We recognize that without our products and services, many of the companies we serve would be crippled.

With that in mind and as an “Essential Business” in accordance with Presidential directive, GWS Tool Group is pressing ahead at full capacity in all of our manufacturing facilities across the United States. Information relating to Critical Infrastructure Sectors can be found at

We are taking the added precautions in our facilities to maximize sanitation, practice social distancing, limit visitors to by appointment only mission-critical personnel and completely restricting presence in the workplace of all non-essential personnel and those deemed high-risk.

At GWS Tool Group we remain vigilant in combating COVID-19 pandemic, protecting the health and welfare of our employees and those with which they come into contact, and supporting our customers that now maybe more than ever are being called upon to supply the world with critical technologies and resources.

Thank you for your continued partnership!
