Celebrating over 30 years in the industry, Mick Tinnon says the one business concept he learned early on is
that customers needs always come first. Turning this early lesson into a business philosophy has carried
GC Dies into it’s 11th year of business as a die making and related tooling business.
In 1980 Mick began his career as a die maker at Graphic Converting, Inc, one of the largest trade finishers
in the country. He moved from die making to the facility operations manager and then general manager,
which gave him valuable experience in die cutting operations and make ready and running efficiency. Today
he shares his decades of hands on die cutting expertise with clients across the country.
In 2001 GC Dies was founded as a full service die making company and Mick became its President. Under
his leadership and direction GC Dies makes and delivers dies throughout North America, has grown to a
professional family of 45 employees and manufactures out of a 30,000 square foot facility in Elmhurst, IL.
