Gulf Coast Crating (GCC) is not your traditional crating company. We were not built by an ambitious carpenter that decided to start a larger operation. Instead GCC’s founder, Paul Pitman, was a former supply-chain professional that spent the last 17 years in the logistics and transportation sector prior to starting the company in May 2014. Focused on sales and his customers needs for much of his career, he took a role as Executive Vice President of a regional transportation company. That experience taught him the metrics-side of running a business. With a customer-focused background and a strong financial approach, plus a shoestring budget, he hired two former furniture builders and started GCC out of the back of a customer’s warehouse. While never losing focus of the client and maintaining a judicious economic approach, he has built the largest crating company in Houston, with over 200 employees.
The rest is history.
