GC Corporate Head Quarters
GC Corporation has built up a Japan-wide network of distributorships, as well as a core establishment of branches, sales offices and service centers. Creation of a substantial before- and after-sales service system is also well underway, using as combination of DR activities (Dental Representative carried out by “GC Man” and “GC Lady”) and machine maintenance and service centers.
GC is also using its “Green System” (based on the world-leader in ERP software packages, R/3) to facilitate shared access to the company’s database information in real time and so expedite selectivity between distribution and sales. As a result, developments in logistics that deploy IT have led to data centralization and to center-based delivery of product. By utilizing its nation-wide dealer network, GC is able to deliver fresh product to its users with optimal ensure the safety and effectiveness of the products that people receive.
GC manufactures some 600 types of products, which are sold in over 100 countries around the world. Due to the existence of differing needs in different overseas markets, GC has very deliberately localized its European, America and Asian operations. It is losing no time in optimizing its on-site activities, while at the same time fulfilling its obligation as a local enterprise by taking an active part in dental industry associations in each country. In terms of its daily operations, GC is not only using contract distributorships to expand its sales network, but is also developing its user-oriented activities through close ties with key opinion leaders in key markets.
In this way, GC is embracing the priority markets of Europe and the United States – markets with comparatively large market volumes – but manufacturing in optimum locations around the world, thereby accommodating market demand while building a presence in the Chinese and Indian markets – markets with firm expectations of growth. Its three main production centers have all acquired ISO13485 certification, and the Company is becoming increasingly well known in the global marketplace for the quality of its products.
GC aims to bring product reliability and product quality of a global standard to the people of the world, thereby making the 21st century “the century of health”.
