On July 26, 2019, GC America Inc. celebrated the Grand Opening of their new State-of-the-Art Facility. The grand opening began with a traditional Shinto blessing and purifying ceremony, performed by Senior Shinto Priest, Rev. Lawrence Koichi Barrish, of the Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America. Several GC executives and prominent guests also participated in the ceremony.
KBD Group completed the GC Campus project on time and on budget and implemented steps to ensure the project would run efficiently. The project was also completed with zero injuries. For their efforts, the project team was recognized by Dr. Kiyotaka Nakao, President of GC. It was a tremendous honor to receive such appreciation for a project designed and constructed by our KBD Group team.
