Gantrex’ operation is consolidated in a Belgian Holding company, with 13 wholly owned subsidiaries in USA, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, UAE, India, Singapore and China, and a number of satellite offices in surrounding countries.
Our activity is governed by the Board of Directors, who decide on all strategic matters including a.o. the appointment of senior managers who take part in the Group Executive Committee (GEC). The GEC fulfills the Group Management role – empowered by the CEO – and ensures efficient implementation of strategic decisions into Gantrex’ global organization and leads local management on key operational issues. The GEC defines and implements operational strategy, policies, technical and commercial developments, as well as new acquisitions in line with targets set by the Gantrex’ Board of Directors.
Gantrex’ operational structure is reasonably flat in order to ensure that the Group’s operations and decision-making process are efficient and responsive. Strategic, group-related operations are the responsibility of the CEO who is advised by the CFO, COO and the other members of the Executive Committee.
Due to the inherent international character of the Group, the General Managers of Operational Centers and Sales & Service Centers, who are close to their customers and suppliers in their respective time zones, take day-to-day operational decisions following the Company’s policies set by the Executive Committee.
