GPMI invests in core divisions.
New manufacturing technologies as well as a new infrastructure are
expected to support future growth for GPMI Company, Gilbert, AZ.
Representing a $6 million investment, these efforts are focused on two
of GPMI's core business: wet wipes and ultrasonic welding. Two wipe
lines have been added to the company's existing wet wipe
operations. One is a high-speed, fully automated canister line with an
emphasis on canister size flexibility, sanitation and built-in control
systems; the second is a soft-pack line with the ability to produce all
wet wipe configurations including soft packs, tubs and refills.
Additionally, after 18 months of development and engineering, GPMI has
completed its unique, state-of-the-art sonic welding lines capable of
ultrasonically bonding up to eight layers of nonwovens. These lines are
designed to yield the highest quality products with great production
