Quality Control

GCR believes the quality of its work should speak for itself. We have strived to meet and even exceed customer expectations, because this promotes repeat business and the longevity of the company.

As a member of the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) GCR has 2 SSPC members on staff . This enables us to ensure we meet strict customer requirements for the implementation of a wide range to world coating standards. Implementation is only one part of the process and traceability is just as important. We use SSPC documentation as well as customer or project specific documentation that enables us to record projects from start to finish will all the necessary reports.

GCR employs a wide range of Quality Control equipment to make sure all blasting and coatings operations will meet our customers requirements.
