About TGC

The Gund Company is a third generation family business.

Our roots in the electrical industry run back five generations with the founding of Bussmann Manufacturing Company by Al Bussmann, Sr. The grandfather of our President, Al Sr. counseled young Paul Gund to study chemical engineering to understand the future of materials technology.

The Gund Company was established in 1951 by Ed Gund, with Paul Gund joining in 1963. The business started as a manufacturer's representative organization. As Ed and Paul listened to the needs of customers requesting better service and faster delivery, The Gund Company moved into material distribution with a stocking facility closer to our customer base.

Members of the 3rd generation of Gunds started with Michelle Smith joining the company in 1988.


The Gund Company has grown into one of the largest manufacturers and fabricators of thermoset composite materials based on our understanding of both materials and their application. Our customers will find our materials knowledge and application experience to be a useful resource in solving today's engineering challenges. The Gund Company now has 8 locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and China.

Although The Gund Company has experienced significant growth in recent years, the Gund family's management philosophy of Satisfy the Customer! has not changed. We will satisfy both internal and external customers completely and with a sense of urgency that will demonstrate our appreciation for each ongoing relationship.
