Quality

Since 1944, Gossett Concrete Pipe has maintained an approach to constant improvement, and an ongoing commitment to quality.  To stay up to date with the toughest ASTM, AASHTO, and ACPA standards specified for Concrete Pipe and Precast Box Culverts, GCPC maintains compliance with the Q-Cast Certification program through the American Concrete Pipe Association.  This 124-point audit is the most stringent quality control program available in the Concrete Pipe industry.  To earn a Q-Cast Certification, producers are examined on an annual basis by an independent consulting firm who are experts in the science of construction materials.  Manufacturers must receive an overall passing score on the evaluation which includes a "must pass" on pipe strength, reinforcement, and joint leakage.  Simply put, GCPC will produce and supply products that will exceed your expectations for quality and service every time.  It's that commitment to excellence that has kept GCPC strong for the last 70 years, and it will carry it into the future.
