GCP shows the way on quality
Great Central Plastics (GCP) is an example of how of a UK manufacturer, accredited to ISO 9001 quality standards, can offer standard and bespoke plastic promotional products to short lead times.
Building trust with customers is of the upmost importance to GCP, so in addition to quality accreditation, it is Sedex-registered, REACH compliant and has even been factory audited by STR and the BBC.
Distributors can also rest assured knowing GCP is also able to supply certiﬁcation of FDA and Food Grade Materials and EN71 and Toy Safety Testing.
The BRIMAN member was formed 18 years ago. Over the past two decades, GCP has grown its customer base, product range and premises, expanding to a larger 1,000m2 facility, but has remained true to its ethos. In 2012, it proved it was an eco-conscious manufacturer by adding 132 solar panels to the factory roof, which produce a third of the company’s energy.
As a responsible UK manufacturer, GCP focuses closely on green processing techniques ensuring, whenever possible, each stage of the order is produced with an eco-friendly philosophy. This allows distributors to add an environmentally-friendly ethos as a key selling point of their promotional products.
Managing director, Tony Phillips, said: “Almost anything in our range can be made out of recycled material, and while we love turning any concepts into reality, it’s an added bonus when we can give it an eco-friendly twist by moulding the products out of reprocessed material. Not only are the customers happy, but we also know we are doing our bit for the environment.”
