Federal Market Sector


These are challenging times with a broad array of adversaries with agendas that are counterproductive to good world order and peace. As the leader of the free world, the USA has a responsibility to lead the fight for global peace and freedom and this role is partially filled by the US Department of Defense and ultimately the US Warfighter.

With a strong veteran workforce including Dennis Bristol, the CEO, GC&E is proud of its military heritage and to be a member of the US Defense Contractor Market Sector that supports US Warfighters in accomplishing their critical mission of protecting and defending freedom in the USA and the global community.

Mindful of these factors, GC&E's leadership is fully committed to insuring that our company provides the highest quality products and services at a fair and reasonable price to our military customers.
