Mission & Vision

Mission

Griekspoor Thermal Coatings bv (GTC) is an international company specializing in the application and finishing of coatings for the maritime and hydraulic industry (piston rods). All Griekspoor coatings are marketed under the trade name TOPCOAT®. The main purpose of these coatings is to provide the underlying product with optimal protection against corrosion and/or wear.

The coatings applied by GTC can be divided into two main groups:

  • Group 1 consists of the “hard” coatings. These coatings are applied thermally. This means that an energy source is always used (in the form of plasma, HVOF or laser) to create the coating. These hard, highly wear-resistant, and corrosion-resistant coatings can be finish-ground in order to achieve the specified fit and/or coarseness. GTC is capable of applying the coatings up to a length of 23 metres, 1 metre diameter and a weight of 20 tonnes.
  • Group 2 consists of the “soft” coatings. These are epoxy or polyurethane spray paint coatings, in all imaginable colours. In addition to their protective function, these coatings also have an obvious aesthetic purpose. If you want to know more about our paint coatings please look at the dedicated paint website of Griekspoor Paint Systems (only in Dutch).

Within the group of soft coatings, GTC integrates a hard thermal metal sprayed primer coating, which, in combination with the soft top coating, creates unique corrosion-resistant properties.

Vision 

The GTC vision is that every single customer must be given “best-value-for-money”. We do not want to limit this merely to the product, we also aim to offer a “best-value-for-money” guarantee with our customer relationship. We do this by assisting and supporting our customers where necessary, for instance with the help of our in house laboratory.

Like every other company GTC depends on its suppliers. This is why we do all that we can to maintain an excellent relationship with our suppliers, and together we continuously endeavour to achieve a mutual “best-value-for-money”.
