Why choose TGS?
Dan Geddes and company partner Joe Giacalone, founders of Total Grinding Solutions of Warren, Michigan, are the brains behind the development of the TGS machine. With a combined 75 years of grinding experience, Geddes and Giacalone made it their goal to design and build a robust centerless grinder that would be precise and would boast the technological innovations of the best machines on the market. The key was to engineer this machine with the latest state-of-the-art features, but to sell it at a very moderate cost. "We applied our hands-on grinding experience with our in-depth knowledge of grinders and set out to design a quality centerless grinder that could handle even highest-volume production runs with extreme accuracy and consistency," says Giacalone. "We were looking to produce a more economical, more precision-based solution. We know what works, and we were determined to 'build a better mousetrap,'" adds Geddes.
We are based in southeastern Michigan and provide Norton lathes internationally. We have customers in every state in the USA, including our neighboring states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.
