Brockton, MA – GTR Manufacturing, an innovative leader in the manufacturing industry, announces a significant step forward through its strategic partnership with Paperless Parts, a cutting-edge quoting and estimating platform designed for custom part manufacturers. With the acquisition of Sweeney Metal Fabricators (a long-time customer of Paperless Parts) in April 2023, GTR is set to radically expand its capabilities, empowering its customers with one-stop access to a comprehensive range of manufacturing solutions and providing its expert team with continued opportunities for success.
With three sites across New England, GTR is uniquely positioned to serve its diverse customer base, encompassing businesses of all sizes across the medical, electronics, military, environmental, semiconductor, solar, and renewable energy industries. Their unique GTR Protoplus initiative began two years ago, focusing on rapid manufacturing and prototypes. The recent acquisition of Sweeney, which specializes in mid-level complexities and machining, has cemented its position as a comprehensive one-stop shop.
The catalyst behind GTR’s investment in Paperless Parts is its commitment to collaboration and visibility across its ecosystem. By implementing Paperless Parts, GTR is poised to unlock synergies among its locations, building standardization and consistency into its quoting processes and creating a more seamless buying experience for its customers. GTR will also soon complete their onboarding of Epicor’s Kinetic ERP system, which integrates seamlessly with Paperless Parts, further allowing GTR to centralize and optimize their quoting data flow. This will result in swifter, more competitive RFQ response rates.
“As we’ve grown from a mom-and-pop shop to a medium-sized operation, we recognize that we need better tools to successfully maintain growth,” shared Corinne King, VP Sales and Marketing at GTR. “Building a best-in-class organization requires us to prioritize visibility and collaboration, and Paperless Parts is aligned with our vision. We’re excited to leverage its capabilities to generate more consistent, comprehensive quotes that capture insights from all three of our sites.”
GTR will also be leveraging Paperless Parts’ Marketing Solutions to amplify its brand presence and connect with a broader audience. Paperless Parts has been a long-time marketing partner for Sweeney, and GTR aims to mirror the impactful strategies that have helped Sweeney Metal Fabricating grow its business substantially over the past several years.
As a supplier to the Aerospace and Defense Industry, GTR has deployed Paperless Parts’ Aerospace & Defense tier, which is specifically designed to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), and has all the necessary systems and controls in place required to pass CMMC audits. With Paperless Parts, GTR can collaborate seamlessly with each other, their customers, and outside vendors without worrying about compromising American intellectual property.
“We are thrilled to embark on this transformative journey with GTR Manufacturing,” remarked Jason Ray, Co-Founder & CEO of Paperless Parts. “Their evolution from a local entity to a dynamic, multi-site operation reflects their dedication to excellence. We are excited to play a part in their continued success.”
