GC Group stands together with the Thai people
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.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had considerable impact on Thai people’s way of life. Everyone must now take special precautions to protect themselves from infection. GC, a leading company that delivers chemical innovations to improve people’s quality of life, is supporting many parties in the fight against COVID-19.
GC Group and our partners are helping to meet the needs of Thais during this challenging time by making essential donations and engaging in collaborative action to provide rapid and continual support to medical personnel, patients, GC Group employees, and others affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Business Continuity Plan
The first measure that GC implemented was a work-from-home policy for employees whose jobs enable them to work outside of our office and production facilities. Employees required to work at the office or onsite have their temperatures taken with infrared thermometers and are checked using video analytics installed at the entrances to workplaces. They are also required to wear surgical masks, wash their hands or use hand sanitizer, and practice social distancing. We will continue to operate our business in a way that mitigates any potentially negative effects on our stakeholders.
Caring for Our Employees
GC announced work-from-home measures for employees to reduce the risk of infections when they travel to and from work. All GC Group employees are provided with essential personal protective equipment such as surgical masks, thermometers, and sanitizing spray. The company is closely monitoring their conditions, especially employees who must work in office spaces and production facilities. Currently, no GC Group employee has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Caring for Society
Along with our partners, GC Group has extended our external support to help reduce potentially adverse social impact through donation programs and joint efforts to deliver medical innovations using our chemical products and solutions. Together, we want to leverage the support of people throughout the country to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand and demonstrate how we can contribute through “Chemistry for Better Living.”
GC Group and our partners stand side-by-side with Thai people and the country’s medical professionals as they address the COVID-19 pandemic. The company is donating our chemical innovations and plastic products to hospitals to help them deal with the mounting concern for the quality of life of Thai people.
We have also visited hospitals to talk with medical professionals and those impacted by the COVID-19 virus to better understand their situation and current needs. This is helping our related departments to focus their urgent research and development efforts. We are confident that GC’s petrochemical innovations and plastic products can be integrated into collaborative projects, meet ongoing requirements, and efficiently solve problems relating to the challenging situation we all face.
