We are a PPE, Promo Merchandise, Signage and Apparel company with a commitment to quality service and sustainable social and ethical outcomes.
As an Aboriginal Owned and Operated business, cultural values are important to us. Family, reciprocity and genuine relationships rather than just transactional relationships are integral to our Culcha! We endeavour to be trusted advisors rather than just a supplier of goods.
Our entire approach at GUC comes from our strong family base – whether big or small, we treat your business as if it were our own: your business is our business and your success is our success. We strive to match our products to your overall business profile, with consideration for targeted promotional campaigns to get the best bang for your buck.

INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY IMPACT.
GUC utilises Indigenous businesses where possible in our supply chain and when combined with the increasing focus on Indigenous procurement facilitates an organic growth cycle that translates into increased local employment opportunities.
GUC’s community focus invests in programs that aim to enhance the social and economic wellbeing of the communities where its employees and resellers operate.
Similarly, GUC places a high weighting on Supplier Partners that have adopted a reinvestment philosophy through the meaningful contribution and development in local communities and support of charitable organisations.
GUC is committed to ensuring our suppliers meet the highest standards in ethical, responsible and sustainable conduct and corporate social responsibility.
The six key areas we are focused on are: Indigenous Community Impact, People & Training, Health & Safety, Environment, Community & Marketplace, and Ethical Standards.
GUC is committed to reducing its environmental footprint by ensuring our Supplier Partners have robust environmental management systems that apply to all locations and businesses across the entire supply chain ranging from sourcing, manufacturing, packaging, handling, right through to the disposal of products. GUC actively seeks out continuous environmental improvement initiatives through the application of guiding principles: reduce, reuse and recycle.
