GAT Tenor is a local family-owned business with a long history in the fastener and construction industry. What sets them apart from other local and national competitors is their customer service, knowledge, experience, and product lines. George Tenor and his wife Karen started GAT Supply in 1976 when George was only 24. He began working out of his basement as a fastener supply company. Just two years later GAT Supply hired their first employee, Ken Parma, who is still an invaluable part of the company and an expert at solving any issue revolving around a fastener.
George and Karen hit the road selling in the Northeast Wisconsin area and continued to grow the business. They expanded their product lines and hired employees at a steady pace. Throughout the years they have still been able to find time to enjoy both hunting and the Packers and are proud to have those interests reflected in their current retail facility on Glory Road in Green Bay.
GAT Supply services companies in and around Green Bay from upper Michigan to Oshkosh and the lake shore. Their product line expanded beyond fasteners to construction equipment and supplies to meet the needs of their customers and their customer first service policy was always a priority when adding employees. Every member of the sales team has extensive experience in construction and the knowledge to make themselves integral to their customers, providing solutions and visiting job sites.
For over 45 years GAT-Tenor has been locally owned and operated. George and Karen’s son, Andy developed an expertise in all construction equipment and products and was able to add an entirely new facet to the business when he joined it. The Tenor Construction Supply and Rental division was created with his expertise. Their daughter Georgina is responsible for marketing as well as receivables and payables. Over the years the business has morphed from a fastener company to a one stop shop building and construction supplier with a huge rental division. While fasteners and concrete remain a large part of the business GAT Tenor also specializes in survey equipment, power tools, and agricultural supplies. In 2014 they expanded yet again to a 30,000 square foot showroom, warehouse, and retail store to accommodate the 20,000 products they carry. The new facility is located on Glory Road in the Ashwaubenon area and open to the public Monday through Friday.
