The first question you may ask is, “why is our logo the chambered nautilus?” Well, it’s said to be nature’s perfect example of fluid and gas controls, hydraulics, and filtration. To us, it graphically represents the range of our products. Its logarithmic spiral of curved chambers is symbolic of our longevity, strength, and continuing growth. Our expertise in the disciplines of hydraulics, pneumatics, automation and fluid conveyance offer the power and knowledge you need to complete every project. As highly technical sales and distribution organization, our customers know that they can always “Count on Quality” from Gulf Controls.
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
The Gulf Controls Company (GCC) was founded in July 1969 by George Johnson and Andy DeBoer. Since the beginning, we have always strived to deliver high-quality products, economically and efficiently to our customers.
In the 1980’s and 90’s, we expanded our presence throughout Florida, Southeast Georgia, and Puerto Rico, acquiring several distributorships engaged in fluid power and electronic/electro-mechanical motion control products. We also acquired a Miami-based hydraulic service shop known as Action Hydraulics, Inc., which allowed us to offer full-system capabilities to our customers.
In 2013, Employee Owned Holdings, Inc. (EOHI) acquired 100% ownership of Gulf Controls Company, welcoming GCC as the newest member of the EOHI family. Our objective is, and always will be, to provide the products, services, and solutions our clients require to achieve their goals.
