The company is Georgia’s exclusive representative of world leading brands such as BASF Firestone, Technonicol, Arcelor Mittal, VELUX and others.
GRC’s main strategy focuses is on establishing high standards in the market and to encourage fair competition.

Against this background, the company invested in a new production facility for rainwater system accessories such as gutter joints and hook ends, outlet collars, pipe wall hooks and outlet corners. The investment project, financed through a EU4Business-EBRD Credit Line loan, therefore encompassed an eccentric press line and tools, a hydraulic press line and its tools as well as seaming tools for the hydraulic press.
To house the new production lines, the project also included the refurbishment of an existing production building, including the associated mechanical and electrical installations.
While the company contributed to the development of more local production of green technologies and benefits from the obvious advantages associated with an expansion of its product range, the investment also meets the EU standards for product quality, energy efficiency in buildings. International environmental and social management standards were incorporated in the production facilities and overall management systems of the company, including work process safety, environmental protection, waste minimization and resource utilization standards.
