EMS partner for 60 years

GPV has more than 60 years of experience within Electronics Manufacturing Services. Founded in 1961 as Glostrup Plade Vaerksted and later renamed to GPV, the company has seen many significant developments.

A new direction

In the 2000’s, a new strategy of focusing on GPV’s core competencies of mechanics and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) was implemented by current CEO Bo Lybæk.

Significant growth

From the headquarters in Vejle, Denmark, GPV has continued to grow significantly and today, the company has production sites in eight countries with the largest factories in Thailand and Sri Lanka.

A new chapter in the history of GPV

In January 2016, GPV was acquired by industry conglomerate Schouw & Co. This acquisition sparked a new chapter in the history of GPV with even more ambitious growth targets.

Ownership with long-term plans

The conglomerate operates with long-term plans, allowing GPV to develop and make investments in both the near and far future. As an example, GPV acquired the Swiss EMS supplier CCS Group in January 2019. The acquisition increased the number of employees from 1,400 employees to 4,000 collectively and more than doubled the revenue: forming a truly global EMS player.

Think global, act local

Today, GPV continues to be headquartered in Denmark while prioritising proximity to customers at all eight local markets.
