Pallets & Headers

Pallets and headers are dies that are used to form the two ends of a concrete pipe, and provides a leak proof joint on assembly. The pallet is used to form the "bell" or female end of the pipe whereas the header is used to form the "spigot" or the male end of the pipe.

These products are critical to have a good joint in concrete pipes or boxes. The accuracy and tolerances of these dies determine the final quality of the joint in concrete pipes/boxes.

The products are generally customized and meet individual customer's requirements. Some of the factors that influence its design are: Process employed in manufacture - dry cast or wet cast, Type of equipment employed , type of gasket etc.

The products are generally made from Cast Iron, Ductile or SG iron and steel. They are then machined to dimensions and tolerances that are required to form a good seal with a gasket when the concrete pipe is assembled

Constructional Castings

In 1999, GCI acquired two acres of land in Bonner Springs, a part on Kansas City Metro. It built over 2000 square feet of office space and over 80,000 square feet of warehouse.

Over the last decade GCI has expanded its markets and now serves customers in over 10 states in the Midwest . Today it is considered a major player in these markets and has gained customer loyalty with its service and business ethic.

This activity was suspended after the construction castings division took off. However, recently after the manufacturing division was established, this activity has again gained importance. We have very good resources available at our facility in India in terms of engineering expertise and machining facilities. We ourselves consume over 2000 metric tonnes of castings every year. Products can be sourced, machined and delivered as a sub assembly. 
  
All products supplied by GCI will be guaranteed against all manufacturing defects. Castings from Gray cast iron, ductile (SG) iron, steel , stainless steels, Magnesium and some super alloys like titanium can be developed by our manufacturing wing.

Industrial Castings

The castings were imported into Kansas City and warehoused. A dedicated and professional sales team was developed to systematically service the markets.

Initially marketing and sales was restricted to the Kansas City Metro area. A 400 square foot space was leased from a Company to store the products. In the next several years, GCI expanded its market to a six state area around Kansas City. By 1998, GCI's product line increased from 40 to 250 products. Warehouse spaced increased from 400 to 15,000 square feet. Went from a one man operation 7 men.
