GPS, affiliate of Saint-Gobain Oberland, has launched a new logo and an extended range of IS machines.

The extended range of IS machines and components are part of a company focused drive to improve the company’s customer service offering.

To mark the change, the logo – steely grey with a flaming glass gob – represents the strength of GPS and the “made in Germany” quality that GPS prides itself on.

With more than 500 machines across the globe and a well-established worldwide supply network of IS machines, GPS is developing solutions that relate to the entire gob-forming process.

The extended portfolio includes 4¼" triple gob machines. Further solutions are in the pipeline, such as a machine station with parallel opening mechanism, a Servo-Shear and a valve block.

GPS service starts from the planning phase of IS machines and components, through to the continuous modernisation of existing machines.

GPS will be represented at the Glassman Exhibition in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in March 2014 as a German top-producer of high quality machines.
