Business Improvement Meetings Strengthen ‘one GPV’

Reading time ( words)

GPV’s top management team kicked off the “2022 Business Improvement Meetings” tour with the first visit to our electronics and mechanics sites in Bangkok, Thailand.

“It has been a couple of interesting and inspiring days in Bangkok. These meetings serve to secure a common understanding of our business – it supports “one GPV”, and it was good to, once again, meet our many dedicated colleagues in Thailand. During 2021, we have invested in new equipment at our Electronics and Mechanics factories in Thailand, and at the factory tour, we saw how this has been implemented and now help secure orders to our customers,” says GPV CEO Bo Lybæk.

The purpose of these Business Improvement Meetings is to inform top management about the current site status and discuss the specific challenges and initiatives to improve and optimise - we call it quarterly wins.

Furthermore, top management gets a chance to meet all the colleagues at the different sites. Different topics are on the agenda, and in 2022, in particular safety awareness, sustainability and once again our values are important topics to discuss.

New mechanics factory on the way in Thailand

In March 2022, the ground-breaking ceremony for a new mechanics factory took place. GPV currently has 7,100m2 mechanics production and 15,000m2 electronics production in Bangkok, Thailand. When finished, the mechanics production will be 12,000m2 and the electronics production will be 22,000m2.

Let’s face it, in the past, electronics manufacturing has not been a big business for North America. A majority of electronics are assembled in Asia where supply chains and operating costs offer many economic advantages. In North America, the electronics manufacturing industry has been generally focused on lower volume, high-cost devices, while higher volume products are produced elsewhere. However, the COVID pandemic and various legislation in the U.S. are changing the situation, making electronics manufacturing in North America a more attractive option. How can factories in North America compete for the same type of manufacturing traditionally performed in lower-cost regions?
