Day One

The Spark

At the age of 19, Mark Andol opened his first business in his father’s garage in the Town of Elma, NY, about 20 minutes southeast of Buffalo. Mark’s Small Engine and Repair Service served as the business incubator for many of Mark’s ideas. An innovator, he launched “mobile service” on small engines, traveling to the homes and businesses of his customers.
You Dream It, We Build or Repair It

GWFab Opened!

At the age of 23, Mark Andol rented a 5,000 sq.ft. shop in East Aurora and opened General Welding & Fabricating, which then supported 10 employees whose motto became “You Dream It, We Build or Repair It”.
Breaking Ground

First Expansion

Thanks to strong demand for Mark’s honest, quality workmanship, he broke ground on a new 14,000 sq.ft. building in the Town of Elma (991 Maple Road). The company grew to 60 employees
American Made


Mark cut the ribbon on a 48,000 sq.ft. addition to the original Elma location (991 Maple Road). Little did he know that the very accounts that prompted the expansion would be lost to overseas competition, currency manipulation, and the Great Recession.

Two multi-million dollar accounts dropped off in the same weekend, forcing Mark to lay off half of his workforce. One of his clients claimed that he could get similar products cheaper from Florida. But it was a lie. These poor-quality parts were actually manufactured in China, shipped to a port in Florida, and ended up in American warehouses in New York State and beyond.

For Country, For Soldier, For American Worker and For Our Children's Future

New Motto

Mark Andol would not go down without a fight. On April 3, 2010, Mark opened the Made in America Store in the vacant showroom of a closed auto dealership. Focusing on a mission to save and create American jobs, especially in manufacturing, Mark adopted by a new motto, "For Country, For Soldier, For American Worker and For Our Children's Future". Mark turned one of the most painful experiences in life into a beacon of hope for America. The store remains the only brick & mortar general merchandise store in the U.S. to sell 100% American Made Products down to the packaging at its flagship location, and three other locations in Western New York.

Two manufacturing plants, Four Made in America Stores, and eyes on the future, GWFab is looking forward to creating the next chapters of American Manufacturing.
