The Goscor Promise

In an age of fierce competition, where product quality and salesperson knowledge have improved drastically, companies need to do everything just that little bit better to succeed. Goscor Lift Truck Company (GLTC), the fastest growing material handling equipment (MHE) supplier over the past 10 years in Southern Africa, is one such organisation.

GLTC’s basic promise is to provide a world-class product supported by world-class service to ensure the lowest total costs of ownership over the lifetime of the product.

The GLTC promise is simple, but fulfilling it takes commitment, passion and hard work. The main reason for our success is that we have taken the multitude of parts that comprise the whole promise, and we have made sure that they are all working in unison and to their highest potential. Sales, technical services and support, finance, parts, switchboard and management must be the best they possibly can be in their own right, but they must work together as one team to make our customer experience extraordinary. GLTC is ISO 9001:2015 certified, an official confirmation of the company’s high levels of service, efficiency and product quality.

Goscor Group of Companies


Goscor Lift Truck Company has earned ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 45001: 2018 certifications.

This merger allows a business to streamline its management, save time and increase efficiency by addressing all elements of the management system as a whole – affirming our high level of service, efficiency and product quality and providing the opportunity to better service our customers, and preserve the wellness of our staff, and most importantly, mitigate our impact on the planet.

The company set the ball rolling in 2016 when it earned ISO 9001: 2008. In 2018, GLTC upgraded this to ISO 9001: 2015 and earned the OHSAS 18001 certification almost simultaneously. At the time, the company was the only forklift company in South Africa to have both these accreditations.

“At GLTC we have always believed that ISO is not only a standard, but a good business management tool. All businesses need to have systems, so why not follow an internationally recognised standard that tells us which systems are important and all the aspects that need to be considered. Ultimately, each company has to define its own systems that are suitable to its business and then follow the system and improve it as you go,” explains Cecil Oates, MD of GLTC.

The Goscor Group concurs with the government’s sentiments regarding the importance of black economic empowerment as a critical underpin of the South African democracy, and the development and success of the country. We have adopted the government’s outlines for broad-based economic empowerment and we are in the process of implementing the weighted scorecard as a measure of our contribution to BEE.
