Travers Tool Expands Offering of Gator Manual Lathe Chucks

Global Tooling Solutions has announced that Travers Tool (Flushing, NY) will expand its offering of Gator Manual Lathe Chucks in its 2012 Metal Working catalog.

Travers Tool introduced Gator 3 & 6 Jaw Semi-Steel Adjustable Chucks in 2011 and will add over 150 additional lathe chuck SKUs to its 2012 printed catalog. "Gator provides one of the broadest offerings of manual lathe chucks on the market," said Joe De Pascale, Global Sourcing Manager for Travers Tool. "Gator provides a high quality alternative to some of the other branded options that are no longer offering the value our customers are looking for." Travers will add Semi-Steel and Steel Scroll and Independent Chucks in both plain-back and direct-mount executions along with a full complement of adapters and spare parts. Travers will stock the line in multiple warehouses throughout its network.

This expansion moves Travers to a full line supplier position with Gator, allowing Travers Tool to provide a manual lathe chuck offering that no other national distributor can offer, the company said.

"This is an important relationship for us," said Karl Ganshirt, President of Global Tooling Solutions. Global Tooling Solutions is the US-based distribution arm for Gator Chucks. "Travers Tool opens up more of the market for us, giving us access to more end users and distributors through its wholesale division."
