Alpha Q, Inc.
Alpha Q, Inc.’s origins date back to 1964 when two separate entrepreneurial companies, REB Industries and Glastonbury Gage, combined to further growth and capitalize on economies of scale. Then and now, the choice of the company name Alpha Q, Inc. is significant and represents the company’s long-standing commitment to quality. The Greek word “Alpha” means “first” and the letter “Q” stands for quality, giving the company its motto “Where quality comes first”. In 1994, the company’s current ownership group purchased Alpha Q, Inc. One year later, the company purchased a leading manufacturer of threaded products and gages, Southern Gage, renaming the new company Glastonbury Southern Gage (GSG).
