GMA's head office moves to 108 St Georges
GMA has relocated its global head office in Perth from Exchange Tower to take up residence at Perth CBD landmark, 108 St Georges Terrace in January this year.
The tenancy incorporates approximately 570 sqm over one level and accommodates the expanding Perth based team.
GMA CEO Stephen Gobby said the company was expanding rapidly to service its full supply-chain operations and had outgrown its home of more than 10 years at Exchange Tower.
“In the last five years alone we have expanded from around 200 to more than 430 people globally as we have opened new processing and recycling plants and widened our distribution channels throughout Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and the USA,” he said.
Evolving from a simple operation based in Port Gregory, GMA now has 13 offices providing the highest quality technical solutions and sales support to customers in more than 80 countries. The company owns the full supply-chain from mine to customer supplying a network of more than 100 distribution outlets worldwide and providing deep technical and sales support via its own sales teams.
“We have always been a Western Australian company and proudly retain our global headquarters here in Perth,” Stephen said.
“The move to 108 St Georges Terrace provides us with the space and amenities to continue delivering our commitment to customers around the world - to keep growing our business with a focus on performance, safety and industry leading product, processing and recycling innovation.”
“Perth is the hub of our executive leadership team and global functions. Our new home will provide the environment in which our team can flourish as the global demand for GMA Garnet - the highest quality abrasive garnet in the market – continues to grow,” Stephen added.
In USA, GMA’s office in Houston has also relocated to a new office within the Woodlands area in October last year. The new office provides us the space for our growing teams in sales and support functions.
