GCBAA Partner Programs

The GCBAA Partners Program provides significant discounts for products or services your GCBAA member business may utilize. GCBAA has negotiated these programs to save your company money and to improve your margins. Each program's requirements and enrollment procedures are different. Please read carefully the procedures for those programs for which you elect to enroll.

Caterpillar Inc. and the Cat dealer network through their Cat Rental National Accounts Program have created an incentive program to further Caterpillar's commitment to supporting the GCBAA and the GCBAA Foundation. This program will recognize the collective rental volume of GCBAA members and reward a rebate on total revenue volume of our membership to the GCBAA and Foundation. Participation in this rebate program couldn't be easier. Simply rent machines from a participating Cat Dealer and leave the rest to GCBAA. Your company will be loaded into the Caterpillar tracking system and all eligible rentals will be combined with the rebate paid to the aggregate number. Eligible machine rentals will be from a Cat Machine Dealer or Cat Dealer Rental store only and not include other dealer divisions such as SiTech, Cat Power, or Cat Marine. Contact GCBAA Members Chris Caccavale at (507) 647-9157 or Caccavale_Christopher_M@cat.com for a copy of the contract.

The GCBAA and Foundation Board of Directors are pleased to continue their partnership with GCBAA Charter Member Sunbelt Rentals. Sunbelt Rentals has agreed to make a donation to the Foundation based on the rental volume of GCBAA members throughout the year. This charitable donation is available to GCBAA members even if they have a separate agreement with Sunbelt Rentals. If you are a  current Sunbelt Rentals customer or would like information on becoming a customer and helping support this program, please contact either the GCBAA executive office or Sunbelt Rentals’ primary contact, Joseph Lobb, joseph.lobb@sunbeltrentals.com.

GCBAA members in the Builder categories can benefit from a Rebate Program from Profile Products, LLC, a GCBAA Charter Member since 2006. This program is paid directly to the member on ProGanics Biotic Soil Media and ProGanics DUAL Biotic Soil Media and Erosion Control all in one product. ProGanics Biotic Soil Media has been designed as a topsoil alternative that accelerates the development of depleted soils/substrates with low organic matter, low nutrient levels and limited biological activity. ProGanics is not a direct replacement for expensive topsoil, but provides an abundant source of organic matter and soil building components to quickly modify soil chemistry, initiate growth establishment and buildup of the uppermost “O” and “A” soil horizons. ProGanics and ProGanics DUAL are Engineered Soil Amendments that meet ASTM D5268 specification which defines “engineered soil amendment” as “an alternative to topsoil”. ProGanics is also BioPreferred listed and certified 100% Biobased content under ASTM D6866. For more information on ProGanics, ProGanics DUAL, and the rebate program, contact GCBAA Member John Martin at jmartin@profileproducts.com or 912-223-7858.
