Many people ask who are the "partners" in the GMP name. The company was founded on the principle that all parties in the chain of distribution should be treated fairly and with respect. Therefore, it is our mission to make our customers, suppliers and employees "partners" in our mutual success.
GMP is the owner of all the above brands with the exception of Anza which is a Trademark of Anza AB of Sweden, and of Weitzer Parket which is a trademark of Weitzer Parkett of Austria.
GMP's North American Distribution Center
GMP is centrally located with its North American Distribution Center in Memphis, Tennessee (from which more air cargo is shipped than any city in the world, therefore Memphis markets itself as America's Distribution Center due to the access of air, rail, water, and highway transportation services). This enables us to provide quick, reliable service on all the products to customers throughout North America.
GMP’s “state of the art” North American Distribution Center and Corporate Headquarters are located in close proximity to the recently completed Memphis Intermodal Yard (featuring six 7,500-foot intermodal tracks, five loading and unloading rail cargo cranes capable of handling over a million containers per year). This puts us in the “Heart” of America’s Distribution Center - Memphis, TN.
