Our effort for Sustainability

We refer to the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda to evolve our business model in two directions:

Finding solutions to design and produce more sustainable and circular products.

Environmental Sustainability begins from Eco-Design.

Our R&D Team, highly specialized in designing with polymeric materials, can work in co-design with the Customer to optimize the products with a view to reducing the consumption of raw materials and energy through lightweighting.

At GHEPI we are committed to adopting responsible behavior in the use of resources and paying particular attention to CO2 emissions. We also believe that efficient systems and machinery generate not only energy savings and a lower environmental impact, but also better Health & Safety conditions for People by generating a good corporate microclimate and working environment. For this reason, since 2013, we have undertaken an important Resource Saving Project which has led to important results.

In GHEPI we invest in the organizational quality and in a distinctive approach to generate high level products and services for our Customers and for continuous improvement of our business performance.

Since 2011, we are accredited as a Research Laboratory of the Emilia-Romagna High Technology Network, an Innovation Eco-System that includes a hundred public and private Research Laboratories, Innovation Centers, Technopoles, which range in many research areas at the highest national and international levels.

We specialize in Product Innovation with a focus on Metal Replacement with polymers for engineering applications and Material Replacement for Environmental Sustainability with polymers for Green applications.

We have been a family business for 50 years. We are honored that, in 2022, JSP International, the subsidiary of the Japanese JSP Corporation founded in 1962, acquired a stake in GHEPI to create a Center of Excellence in injection molding for the development of new applications aimed at Environmental Sustainability. JSP is a worldwide leader and specialist in foamed materials delivering solutions for multiple industrial sectors and was the first EPP (expanded polypropylene) manufacturer to offer products with recycled content.

Sustainability and Innovation are key areas of focus both for GHEPI and JSP, Together we will continue to develop products that are part of the circular economy.

Over 50 years of experience

Since 1972 we have been designing and manufacturing precision mechanical components and aesthetic items for many industrial sectors through injection molding of thermoplastic materials. We work with great passion and with constant enthusiasm to renew ourselves and innovate.

50 years are an important milestone in our history, fruit and synthesis of the life of the people who have been part of it: Collaborators, Customers, Suppliers and a network of trusting relationships thriving on our reputation.
