Client meeting at EMS firm GPV discussing design and product development within electrical engineering, PCB and mechatronics

Design & Engineering

To help our customers accomplish more, we provide design and engineering services for hardware and software with superior skills in handling the combination of mechanics, cable-harness-assemblies and electronics.


Global Design & Engineering Services


GPV employs around 75 specialists, engineers and technicians who provides customers with technical information, consulting and training. Due to our vast experience in design and engineering services within EMS, GPV can provide support for existing products as well as system design of new developments. A network of external development partners and close proximity to universities, keeps GPV on top of the newest technological advances in the market.

Development Disciplines

Our interdisciplinary team exploits group synergies and is particularly distinguished in the following fields:


  • High-frequency, radio and communication technology
  • Embedded-Software in C for 8 to 32-bit microcontrollers, from microchip PIC to ARM A8
  • Power electronics in the low watt to one kilowatt range
  • Implementing of sensor technologies
  • For applications with increased environmental requirements such as automotive production, defense technology or potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX)

Our engineering teams work hand in hand with our production structures and know the interfaces to sales, purchasing, logistics and production like the back of their hands. This experience gained over decades allows us to create optimum designs.


  • Production requirements taken into consideration during development
  • Inclusion of production interfaces during the concept phase of a development project
  • Orientation on customer interfaces during industrialisation
  • Realisation of supplementary subtasks (e.g. certification)
  • Consideration of strategic suppliers during component selection
  • Realisation of inspections and conducting of analyses for specific quality requirements

Design-for-Excellence (DFX)

Early involvement in a spirit of partnership ensures optimum costs coupled with the highest quality and quickest availability.


  • Design for Manufacturing (DFM): Layout testing / material testing / EMC
  • Design for Testability (DFT): Checking of testability / test concept
  • Design for Cost (Optimisation) (DFC): Optimum sourcing strategy / 2nd source / Obsolescence management
  • Design for Security (DFS): Risk management / Physical security / Traceability
  • Design for Logistic (DFL): Optimising of throughput and delivery times / supply security
