The Beginnings of GCM

Former Director Greg McCulloch learned the electrical wholesale business from the ground up.  He initially started as an electrical contractor and then graduated into retailing & wholesaling. After completing his apprenticeship and working for another wholesaler for 12 years, Greg decided he needed a change and in July 1999, Greg and his wife Jenny bought GCM Auto Sales. This was a business in the retailing and wholesaling of automotive lighting and electrical products.

Previous customers of Greg wanted the same service he had previously provided to them and by late 1999 GCM Auto Sales became GCM Lighting & Electrical, servicing both the automotive and electrical industry and due to growth moved to a larger premises in Tamworth. As the business continued to expand, Greg found a need to be more competitive and made an application to Gemcell. On acceptance to the group, Greg and Jenny continued to expand their business with continued support and help from Gemcell. In September 2004 they moved to their current premises in Plain Street, Tamworth which has a large showroom displaying products in 12v/24v and 240v/415v.

On the 1st May 2023 Greg and Jen sold GCM to start enjoying a well deserved retirement. The new owners Allan, Chloe and Adrian are local and Allan was initially with GCM early in his working career and understands the business and the focus that GCM always had in regards to its customers and the service provided.
