Innovation & Quality

New thinking new technology and incremental improvement across everything we do

Innovation and Technology for Practical Solutions

GPS is an early adopter of technology and an advocate of marginal gain.

We incorporate the latest compact starters, variable speed drives and communications technologies to extract every incremental improvement in reliability, energy efficiency and data – which continues to drive down the cost of automation.

Our innovation landmarks include the first intelligent MCC in the UK water industry using Siemens Simocode, the development of the G-Flex Modular range, and specialised design-changeover solutions offering no-build options that deliver substantial civil cost savngs.

Standardisation and modularisation are driving some of the biggest improvements in ROI by maximising device density, minimising footprint and providing a high level of flexibility that allows equipment to be updated to keep pace with changing requirements and new technologies.

We continually seek technology breakthroughs that push the boundaries of product performance while recognising that small improvements add up to big efficiencies for large scale motor operations.

Quality Management

GPS operates a rigorous quality regime underwritten by type testing and independent accreditation.

All our products are fully compliant with BS EN 61439. 

Our quality management system is certified to ISO 9001-2015.

We hold extensive certification including short circuit withstand to 20kA/1sec, 50kA/1sec and 80kA/1sec, ingress protection to IP65 and temperature rise to 5000A.

Electrical testing and build control checks are carried out at every stage from sub-assembly to final commissioning, and we operate a dedicated FAT test unit.

We have also invested in our own temperature rise facilities to prove our designs, and provide certainty for our customers.

In-House Capability

End to end control makes faster project delivery and lower cost a reality for GPS customers. 

In-house design and manufacturing resources take the supply chain risk out of the build schedule.

With a library of over 250 standard designs from basic distribution boards to full motor control centres, more than 150 fully tested function blocks, and production ready modular enclosures – hardware manufacturing and software development times can be significantly reduced.

For bespoke projects, 3D solid modelling and precision steelwork allow our designers to create complex configurations confident in the knowledge that they will be right first time on site. 

Project Delivery

We take a collaborative can-do approach to project delivery and customer service. 

Meeting the deadline starts with our pre-design technical evaluation which aims for early specification certainty to minimise design revisions and build changes. 

We understand the natural tensions between fixed schedules and evolving scope, and work closely with our customers to flag problems early and keep projects moving - sometimes it’s how we manage problems and fix things when they go wrong that makes the difference.
