"IR-G delivers excellent service for my commercial brewery needs. We built our brewery one piece at a time and the folks at IR-G were more than willing to help with small parts, fittings, lubricant, regulators, gaskets, pipe, gauges and hoses. We had a lot of questions in the beginning and IR-G gave us the answers and the parts to make it work. I can walk in and walk out with whatever I need to get the job done. I would not be where I am today without their help. Seriously, IR-G is way more than a supply house. Get your parts where pros get theirs.
-Scott Swygert, Honky Tonk Brewing Company
"I just want to take a moment to say thank you for the wonderful service and help that Industrial Rubber and Gasket has been for us over the years. Eddie and Corey have been a pleasure to work with. In addition to keeping up with our needs on a regular basis, IR-G has literally “saved our ship” on more than one occasion. The products, such as sandblast hose, have been top notch. And the saying, “there’s no job too small” holds true, too. Thank y’all!"
-AC Knoblock, Purchasing Manager, Gate Precast Company
"Thank you for the product that your Clarksville office was able to fabricate which eliminated a potential safety issue with our propane bottles. We contacted the Clarksville location a few weeks ago, to see if it was possible to fabricate a propane hose ¼” x 50’ with a fire jacket covering 12’ from the hose connection to the tank. Current weed burner torches only come with a 6’ hose when you buy the torch handle. We needed it to be much longer in order to safely locate the tank away from a large heat source. IR-G responded immediately and took the time to go to the area to look at the issue. They were able to provide an immediate on the job solution. The hose was ordered, fabricated, and delivered 3 days after looking at the scenario. The hose is still in use and working great.
"I just wanted to thank you again for the excellent service that you provide to us at HB Specialty Foods. This is the second time that I know of that you have saved us from extended production downtime! It is so nice to have a local business that is willing to go the extra mile when it comes to personal customer service and I just wanted you to know that it is VERY MUCH Appreciated!!"
Scott Hoff, Maintenance Manager, HB Specialty Foods
