About Us

G.C.I., Inc. (originally Gulf Coast Industrial Equipment Company) was established in 1984 by John Godso as the Duriron distributer for Durco pumps, seals, and valves in the Southeast.

To create a full service business concentrated on meeting the needs of his customers, Mr. Godso began to seek out distributorships that would provide the products and services industry professionals required. GCI’s current list of manufacturers is a reflection of his legacy. In 2010, Mr. Godso decided to sell the business and in 2012, Janie and Barry Bond became sole owners.
