When you use GCL, you are getting a company that is committed to providing the attention to detail and service you would expect from your own company's in-house coating department.
GCL offers one of the widest array of coating deposition techniques available to any coating company in the industry. This allows us to choose the most appropriate method to apply thin-film coatings in order to achieve the highest standards of reliability and durability possible.
GCL is one of the few companies nationwide to offer Ion Beam Sputtering as a coating deposition technique.

The longevity of GCL's staff (average tenure is 25 years), has led to a solid trust between GCL and our clients.
GCL focuses on details. Each substrate is accounted for, both in-coming and out-going, inspected and reviewed per customers' blueprint. Each is hand cleaned, evaluated and documented. Each run is registered for traceability and logged for future inquiries.
It is of the utmost importance to keep the lines of communication open, working together to overcome challenges and find solutions.
We handle your optics as our own. When you are successful in your endeavors, we are successful.
