GRC Consultancy Solutions for Manufacturers


For companies wishing to enter the rapidly expanding GRC Industry

No-one has the breadth of experience PBS Synergies can offer would be GRC manufacturers.

Since 2009 we have established and operated from a standing start  2 GRC businesses which today, probably are the two largest outputting facilities in the UK. In 2018 we also assisted the Lindner Group in establishing their GRC manufacturing plant in Bavaria. Today the plant is a major supplier to the European market.

Our expertise spans every aspect of the GRC supply chain with PBS Synergies owned subsidiary companies having carried out  major design, manufacture and installation projects in the UK.

We were also the first company in Europe to establish a full ISO 17025:2017 certified testing laboratory for GRCA, BS, EN and ASTM test methods and standards.

Thanks to our long standing relationships with equipment and raw material suppliers we can access the latest in technical advances in both manufacturing and testing equipment and supply certain critical raw materials.

We know, from are own experience the cost and timeline of starting GRC production from a standing start is significant. Provided a client has an existing suitable business we can have a fully operational GRC business operating with 3-4 months manufacturing high quality and compliant GRC products
