Arkansas Small Business Goes Global!

Galley Support Innovations (GSI) is a design/manufacturing company located in Sherwood, Arkansas that specializes in interior hardware for planes, trains, yachts and more. Multi-million dollar industries such as Gulf Stream, Boeing, Dassault Falcon Jet, and Oddysey are their customers.  While Galley Support manufactures core parts with thousands of variations, their specialty niche is latches.  World Trade Center Arkansas first met GSI owners, Gina and Wade Radke at an aerospace trade show.    In the past three years, WTCA has been a reliable resource and provider of grant funding to assist them in successful export growth.  Gina Radke remarked, “WTCA allowed us to expand into the international market in a timely manner. Without the STEP funds and support of the staff at WTCA, it would have taken us much longer to meet face to face with international customers at trade shows or advertise in international magazines”.  GSI has recently obtained two new international contracts from the pool of potential customers they have met at trade shows.  They have grown from 2 – 21 employees. From original design to manufacture to print; from conception to completion, GSI provides a “Promise Guarantee”.
