GTF Force Parts started its activities in 2005, in a small garage in the water-green neighborhood, Curitiba-PR. After two years of operation in this place, the need for a broader headquarters appeared, so the GTF was transferred to a slightly larger space in the same neighborhood where it was possible to meet the growing demand in a satisfactory way. After three years in this second address, we identified the need to increase the number of employees and for this an even greater place was needed. We moved the company to a commercial townhouse on the same street where it was possible to expand the supply line and plan the growth with a more professional structure. Gradually we gained confidence and great progress occurred every year.
Until then we did not have much capital to participate in large bids and for this reason we had to have a lot of patience so that, little by little, the company could increase its sales potential and then participate in bigger bids. It was in this way that we expanded our line of products and services, gaining great experience with the armored vehicles, especially with the model of VBTP M113, now with the national version M113BR.
Based on results and increasing demand, our plan became more ambitious, we decided to invest in training and in the construction of our own headquarters, where it would be possible to subdivide the company by sectors, hire more people and move to a more consistent organizational plan , with capacity to serve several military units scattered throughout Brazil. In 2013, our current headquarters, located in the Hauer neighborhood, was a strategic point to serve our customers and the place we have stayed until today.
We currently have a very close relationship with the largest and best suppliers of vehicular parts to the military in the world. The work of building this relationship lasted a long time and was quite complex, because our previous volume of purchases had low expressiveness and the suppliers had no references of our company. Gradually, these partners realized our potential and established a bond of trust, formalizing exclusive contracts and facilitating purchasing conditions.
We are currently planning to expand and migrate to a larger location that will enable us to perform preventive maintenance of military vehicles and revitalize vehicles completely, delivering the vehicle ready for use. In this way we can add quality and national technology in the vehicles.
Gradually we are becoming more and more participatory and managing to supply the different military units scattered throughout Brazil. We are convinced that our potential can soon be compared to the great suppliers around the world and that we can expand and serve other countries in Latin America.
