A seamless supply chain for cost and competitive advantages

As a system partner, our mission is to permanently complement our customers’ range of products and services through the seamless, value- and quality-orientated integration into the supply chain. Our internationally positioned supplier management activities play an important part in this regard. They enable us to realise competitive pricing for specific customer requirements.

The purchase of tools from the Asian region and the procurement of raw materials on the international commodity markets is part of the GPE Group’s daily operations. Our purchasing expertise provides our customers with clear advantages in global competition.

Certifications – for the highest standards of quality

The GPE Group’s commitment to excellence is based not only on its brand promise to deliver ‘Great Performance Engineering’, but first and foremost on the requirements of the MedTech industry, for whom we primarily work. After all, the products and systems we manufacture for our medical technology customers often have a direct impact on the safety and quality of professional patient care – in short, we play a key role in helping you to protect and save lives.

Quality assurance from A to Z – sophisticated processes

Our quality assurance activities span the entire spectrum from incoming goods to the production line, from final device inspection to outgoing goods. In order to effectively maintain our customer-orientated quality principles, we consistently rely on sophisticated production processes, supported by state-of-the-art measuring and monitoring technology.

Item measurement

  • Coordinate measurement
  • Tactile measurement (dimensional measurement, form measurement, surface measurement)
  • 3D scanning
  • Optical measurement
  • Conventional metrology
  • Surface metrology
  • Colour testing (colour spectrometer)
  • Surface tension
  • Roughness depth measurement

Other testing methods

  • Material testing
  • Hardness testing
  • Durability/reliability testing
  • Leak tests and many more

Sustainability and conservation of resources – a key responsibility

As a manufacturing company, we are aware of the effects of our business activities on the climate and environment. The GPE Group implements, monitors and evaluates measures to conserve resources and improve energy efficiency. Through optimised production technologies and processes, we want to use natural raw materials in a responsible manner, reduce emissions and minimise any negative effects on people and the environment; we also use bio-materials from renewable sources.

To us, quality also means environmental protection. This begins with the selection of materials and continues through all of our production processes:

  • Recycling production waste
  • State-of-the-art waste management concepts (waste separation system, reducing disposal costs, disposal safety)
  • Registration and evaluation of hazardous substances
  • Environmental management according to DIN EN ISO 14001
