Gem Products, a designer and manufacturer of Gemlux stainless-steel marine hardware, is broadening its market base and expanding into the industrial market segment, the company announced.

With its expansion, Gem Products serves several well-known companies. American Emergency Vehicles, an ambulance manufacturer, is using stainless-steel eye straps that Gem developed. Safety Kleen, an industrial waste recycling company, recently began using Gem’s stainless-steel hinges in its corrosive chemical washing machines.

“We are dedicated to developing exceptional products and are privileged to call such highly recognized companies our customers,” Gem Products president Matthew Bridgewater said in a statement. “Customer satisfaction is our top priority, and we look forward to maintaining our existing relationships and growing our clientele.”
