GC is standing side by side with Thais to deal with COVID-19 which supports its efforts to provide Chemistry for Better Living.

We would like to express our care and concern to all Thais in the hope that we can quickly overcome the COVID-19 crisis that has become a direct concern nationwide and has rapidly impacted Thai society and countries around the world. Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 in Thailand, we have visited hospitals to deliver the necessary medical equipment as well as to express our encouragement and solidarity with medical professionals. We also had the chance to discuss their pressing needs and the problems they are facing. We are making sure that our chemical and plastic products are dedicated to this support effort. The GC Group will also apply our innovations in working with our partners to relentlessly research and develop useful medical equipment to provide solutions to this crisis, to ensure that the Thai people will have a good quality of life, to beat this pandemic together, so that we all can feel safe and secure once again with a smile on our faces.

Responses to Deal With COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is the most pressing issue for the country affecting our way of life. GC, standing firmly with Thai society, has been providing continuous assistance, contributions and support to people in the country to help them get through this crisis since the first outbreak.

GC is implementing four key measures:

Employee Safety
Business Continuity
Contributions to Communities and Society
Communications to Build Visibility with Stakeholders

Employee Safety

The company must keep employees from becoming infected with COVID-19

We treat our employees like family. Keeping them safe and providing them with personal hygiene tools and up-to-date information is an important mission which GC recognized early on. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has continuously implemented comprehensive measures to ensure employee safety and build confidence, which in turn, helps alleviate the burden on the government sector. The measures consist of:


Appointing a working group under the supervision of a “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Prevention and Control Committee” to continuously monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation.


Implementing ‘Lock-up’ measures for factory workers.


Emphasizing strict cleanliness in office areas and factories.


Increasing the number of office employees working from home from 66% to 90-100%.


Developing a 'Fight COVID-19' app to monitor employee health and function as a channel to register for vaccinations.


Providing ‘Drive-Thru’ COVID-19 testing for employees.


Providing vaccines for employees and their families, as well as their parents.


Building a better understanding about vaccines among the Company’s employees.

Business Continuity

Adaptability to any situation is the key to business sustainability and continuity

While COVID-19 has altered the economic landscape, GC is continuing to prioritize the delivery of quality products on time together with the following support measures:

  • Business Continuity Management (BCM)

  • Increasing the performance of employees through ‘Upskilling & Reskilling’

  • Becoming a digital-driven organization through a “Digital Transformation” strategy

  • Ensuring the safety of customers through COVID-19 prevention and control measures for logistics

  • Assisting customers by supporting their businesses and responses to COVID-19

GC implemented a Business Continuity Management (BCM) plan and launched an Emergency Management Center (EMC) to rapidly deal with any employees infected with COVID-19.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, GC is maintaining its production capacity in all of its production lines by optimizing workflows to increase efficiency and agility while increasing the performance of employees through upskilling & reskilling measures to deliver high quality products on time along

with a collaborative plan with customers under our policy of “Customers exist, therefore, we exist.”

GC prepared a corporate readiness plan to respond to all forms of change. This included setting-up an ad-hoc “Digital Transformation” team two years ago to conceive of ways to work proactively based on a vision that looks to the future, and how to drive GC as a digitally-driven organization that operates with a focus on sustainability.
