Eugene Selivra, CEO of GCT said, “GCT’s main objective has always been and remains the patients’ safety and well-being.

After all, behind all our success, stand the people who are talented, passionate, and devoted professionals. Our biggest achievement is the customers’ confidence and trust in GCT. What used to be an idea is now a reality.”
