IMPETUS Plastics Engineering becomes part of the GPE Group

Since July 22nd, 2020, IMPETUS Plastics Engineering has been part of the GPE Group, a group of companies focusing on medical technology, especially in the areas of anesthesia, ventilation, monitoring and medication. The GPE Group has locations in Dassow, Neumünster, Seebach, Nagold and Târgu Mureș in Romania. The entire group generates sales of more than € 100 million worldwide with medical components and cable systems.


„With this acquisition, the GPE Group is significantly strengthening its development competencies and can better meet the increasing demand in the market for complex parts and components from a single source, from the idea to production. With IMPETUS we have gained a strategic partner with whom the knowledge-based development services in the GPE Group will be significantly expanded, "says the CEO of the GPE Group, Steven Anderson.

"We are also looking forward to working with the Technical University of Rosenheim, where Prof. Dr. Thomas Brinkmann has held a professorship for product development and simulation techniques for over 15 years."

In the group of companies, it is a declared strategic goal to let IMPETUS exist as an independent engineering service provider with its unique and integrated range of services for the development of plastic technology products or systems and tools. This includes the development of ideas through the construction, design & simulation for components, tools and complete devices up to prototype and small series production including the coordination of the project partners up to series production.

These development services are consistently available regardless for all industries and manufacturer. The interdisciplinary development competence in Aachen and Bad Aibling, well known to IMPETUS customers, will be retained without restriction and will be continued in the usual way.

"We are very pleased to expand our expertise and our portfolio, especially in the field of medical technology, to include the high manufacturing competence of the GPE Group in both the plastics and metal sectors," said Prof. Dr. Thomas Brinkmann, who together with Frank Jöpen and Dr. Sigrid Brinkmann will continue to lead the company.
