Gibbs Launches A Contest of Ideas! Win $1000, $500, or $300!


Invent or Create a Product or Service Utilizing Stainless Steel Coil Scrap and/or Excess Inventory and Win Up to $1000.00!

Gibbs is looking for a creative use of our scrap and excess inventory created from our slitting process. Slitting is a metal cutting process that ‘slices’ narrower coils from a wider coil.  The coil cutting process requires us to take an outer edge cut or a “side-cut” that frequently becomes scrap. In addition, the coil cutting process can produce shavings, which also become scrap. The ‘middle material’, or prime coil material, is utilized for many applications but, we may have overages of excess of prime coil inventory on our shelves, that goes unused.

Rather than scrap the side-cuts, shavings, and prime excess inventory, we’d like you to suggest a use, re-use, re-purpose, creation, service, or invention!  You may suggest an idea from one or all of the forms of excess material we have!

We want your ideas and we’re giving away $1000.00, $500.00, and $300.00 prizes!
