GCI Pipe Products Inc.,
In 1993, a customer of GCI Castings wanted some products developed for their concrete pipe
plant. These products were used to form the two ends of the concrete pipes and called "Pallets" and "headers". Pallets are generally used to form the bell end or female end of the pipe, whereas the
Header is used to form the spigot or male end of the pipe. The products were made and successfully used by the customer.
