Kent, WA – June 26, 2019 – GCC (formerly Valin Fluid Power) today announces the relocation of their Kent, WA office to a new building located at:
6608 South 211th Street, Suite 101
Kent, WA 98032
This new location provides 27,000 sq. ft. of warehouse/manufacturing space as well as 8,000 sq. ft. of office space, allowing GCC NW more capacity to maintain customer inventory, provide repair services and assemble value-added solutions for customers. As GCC NW continues to expand with new leadership in place, the new location provides significant office space to be used by the company’s employee-owners.
GCC acquired the assets of Valin Fluid Power on December 1, 2018. As the exclusive Rexroth distributor for the area, while carrying many other world class product lines, GCC can pursue new customer opportunities while still growing their business. Since the acquisition, GCC has been investing in the right people and resources to grow the business in this region. GCC NW hired Branko Horvat, Sales Manager of the NW region in February 2019 and in June hired a new Managing Director – Joe Kane.
“I am excited to work with the entire GCC team,” says Joe Kane, Managing Director of the GCC NW region. “We’ve just begun our journey to establish GCC as the trusted brand for power solutions in Washington and Oregon.
“Since beginning to work with this remarkable team, I’ve been impressed by their talent and work ethic,” says John Flieman, CEO of GCC. “The Pacific Northwest provides exciting new opportunities for our company, and I look forward to continuing to invest the time and resources to grow our business in the region.”
GCC has the knowledge in hydraulics, pneumatics, fluid conveyance and automation to provide world class products and complete power systems to its customers. GCC is part of EOHI, a 100% employee owned company based in Houston, Texas. EOHI is also the parent of Hydraquip, Inc., Supreme Integrated Technology, Inc., and Elite Controls, Inc.
