The GCI Group came highly recommended and after the tendering process proved to be very competitive on price. A project like this requires a lot of cooperation from all contractors and suppliers. The GCI Group proved to be both flexible and reliable. While schedules and targets inevitably change with so many contractors and suppliers working together The GCI Group was continually able to adapt and help out. The quality of their work was excellent, allowing the designers concept of erection to go according to plan and allow each piece to fit together with ease. Based on my experiences with the company I would have no hesitation in recommending The GC Industry Group as a quality steel supplier.
Designed, engineered and built in Australia.
To our team at Bustech this statement is not some marketing spin we expound whenever convenient. It is the very foundation upon which every bus we build leaves our manufacturing floor.
To ensure that foundation remains strong we look to engage with like minded suppliers. As such the GCI Group has become a welcome partner in our pursuit of excellence. Their quality control and ability to fabricate to the finest tolerances helped us pioneer the ultra-low floor bus that is as stylish and durable as it is innovative.
We demand as much of our suppliers as we do of ourselves, which is exactly why we work and trust in GCI.
The Commonwealth Games have now come and gone!
As a contributor for the delivery of the Games, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for GCI’s patience and cooperation in supplying the bike racks.
I have attached a couple of images if you were interested in the rack’s usage during the Games.
Hope everything is well and thanks again for helping to support Gold Coast’s shift to an active City.
SDT has engaged The GCI Group to fabricate our driving simulators.
We have been impressed with the customer service, value, build time and build quality.
The GCI Group has improved our end-product and been refreshingly easy to deal with.
Our customers are receiving the best possible driving simulator frame, thanks to GCI.
Redmond Gary Australia has had a long standing relationship with GCI. For at least the last 10 years GCI has been one of our main suppliers for laser cut and folded parts manufactured from steel. On some occasions they have assisted us with fabrication when demand outstrips our own capacity. It is important to Redmond Gary Australia to have a trusted supplier who has ISO 9001 accreditation and can be relied upon to deliver parts and components of high accuracy in the correct quantities on time to meet our production schedule.
I would not hesitate to recommend GCI for the supply of steel components.
To whom it may concern
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the supply of our Ambulance parts over the past 12 months.
Varley has spent considerable time looking for a reliable, cost competitive Laser supplier. After exhausting the market in Queensland, you were the only supplier that has proven to be consistent in delivering our products on time and defect free. Working in with our lean system has also proven to benefit us by saving hundreds of man hours in our stores.
Working with your team has been a pleasure and has been nothing but professional. The after sales service is also of a very good standard and trust that this will continue into the future.
We at Varley look forward to working with your team with all upcoming future contracts. I can highly recommend your services.
To the GCI team,
I want to thank you for assisting me with the alloy tray & canopy for my new work vehicle. Before I found the GCI group I spent considerable time evaluating my options, I was faced with cheap substandard canopies, or overpriced solutions from the leading suppliers that found it “too hard” to cater to my specific requirements. You have been a pleasure to deal with, I’m happy with the end product & the cost was very competitive.
