GREENVILLE – “Thirty years! Wow! That’s amazing,” said Greenville Mayor Steve Willman at the 30th anniversary celebration for Greenville Technology, Inc.

LaFramboise is not only one of the longest serving members of the GTI family, he has also become the face of the company. He started with GTI before there was a building built in 1986 and has continued through the opening of the production line in 1987 and through several expansion at the Greenville plant and across North America. He explained the success GTI has experienced is due to the company’s willingness to embrace all the good from the Japanese and American business cultures. “Thirty-years ago, one of the things that we set out doing, as a company, we wanted to blend the Japanese and American business styles in a way that would maximize the benefits of both business styles and make this a truly benchmark company.

He believes the company has been successful and has continued to grow because of the primary objectives set at the beginning – customer satisfaction, strong long lasting supplier relationships, associate security and safety and strong community ties and support. “Those four pillars that we established early on before we were shipping product…We just decided this was the way to be successful in Greenville.”.....
