Building or renovating invariably involves the use of aluminium and glass. In the Bay of Plenty the names Rylock, Showerman and Balustrades BOP are well known as first choice suppliers and installer for builders and home owners.
Greg and Andrea Cawley have been involved in the Tauranga building industry since 1991 and have owned Showerman since 1999. The addition of Rylock BOP in 2002 then Balustrades BOP in 2007 and Dual Glaze in 2009 has given them a stable of thoroughbred companies.
The formation of the umbrella company, GAC Group, formalizes a synergy that has been building up over the years, cementing these 4 companies reputation along with their other wholesale business as a "one stop shop" for aluminium and glass products.
Service and knowledge is the key to the Group success. Anyone, from DIY home renovators to managers of major commercial projects will find the assistance they need at a level they understand from the GAC Group staff.
"The forming of the GAC Group allows us to build on the skills of our staff to deliver a comprehensive, professional service to our many customers in the commercial and private sector" says Greg. We believe that the most important thing we can produce for our customers is quality service along with quality products. If they notice an improvement as a result of the formation of the GAC Group we will be achieving what we set out to do."
The formal alliance gives the company great buying power resulting in significant savings they can pass direct to the customer. GAC Group purchase their aluminium from one of New Zealand(TM)s biggest suppliers, Fletcher aluminium, with glass being sourced from locally based Metro Glasstech BOP.
GAC Group service starts at the sales enquiry and continues through measure, design, quotations, manufacture and installation with ongoing service and maintenance all performed by their own staff.
