A complete supply chain assessment was conducted from thread manufacture, to dying, weaving, shipment to factories for production, the factories themselves and post production shipping worldwide.
Extensive testing and monitoring of shipment conditions during the ocean voyage to the final destination resulted in a specific protocol to reduce and/or eliminate the problems. One USA based client reported a yearly saving in excess of US $2.5 million on lost goods.

When fungal contamination was found in The Wound Care Center due to unexpected water damage GICC LLC was called in to identify and quantify the damage and construct a protocol for remediation. Laboratory tests and analysis was prioritized. Working with one of the region’s premier remediation contractors, crews came in on Friday afternoon and worked non-stop and the clinic was back in operation on Monday morning at the regular scheduled time.
GICC LLC’s ability to access specialized laboratory services 24/7/365 is what allowed clinic operation to get back on track and critical care rendered to patients. GICC LLC has conducted numerous projects on the campus of the hospital over the years and each one was finshed on time, under budget and with complete success.

The Casino had a system installed to abate smoke odors and airborne pathogens. The system had some operational issues as well as product use issues. Help was sought from GICC LLC Corporate Headquarters. With our diverse background in pathogen control, contamination assessment as well as building Mechanical Systems Engineering we were able to make suggested system design changes. In addition we provided a totally organic, non-toxic, chemical-, drug- and alcohol-free product that is effective against airborne pathogens plus completely eliminated harmful smoke odors.

A comprehensive protocol was constructed that once implemented, resulted in a fully safe, healthy and operational facility.

Project 10 - GICC LLC Enhances Nigerian Maize Harvest
Working closely with Shonga F.H. Nigeria LTD, GICC LLC conducted extensive pathogen testing to identify, quantify and establish a means of crop protection and enhancement. GICC LLC specified and utilized its proprietary organic, anti-pathogenic solution to combat “army worm” and “stem borer” insects posing a serious challenge to Maize production. Prior use chemical based products required multiple applications, yielded less than acceptable results and left environmental damage. Path-Away Plant Protectant® developed by GICC LLC provided rejuvenation of already infested leaves after a single week. Overall plant performance improved substantially. With everyone in the food related industry trying to go “organic” the Path-Away® product line, which is organic, is believed to have an edge in control of insect pests, thereby increasing yield and famer profitability. Path-Away Plant Protectant® With Growth Enhancer has been recommended to Nigerian farmers because of its effectiveness, environmental safety, ease of use and its overall performance.
