After more than 35 years, G&L Manufacturing has a strong reputation among its customers. “We’ve earned respect in the marketplace,” says Phillip Jones, director and co-owner. “When you ship exactly what they want on-time, with great quality and stable economics, they keep coming back.”

Based in Cookeville, Tenn., G&L manufactures tubing for the industrial and commercial heating, automotive and HVAC markets. The company takes pride in providing American-made products, while almost all of G&L’s competitors produce their tubing outside of the United States. Founder Robert Gilreath started the company in 1982 with Art Lewis, after working for a local heating element company.
