A good design can succeed or fail depending on the feasibility and manufacturability at the right cost price. With this in mind, our engineers are involved in the product design from the beginning of the design process.
A brushed die-cast aluminum consumer electronics case requires a different engineering approach than the case for a new smartwatch or a complete industrial pressure washer, to name just a few examples of our successful projects. Our engineers have backgrounds in relevant specialties and disciplines such as plastic injection molding, roto-molding, aluminum casting, plate processing, and electromechanical constructions. Hey also have many years working within the various frameworks of applicable (European) standards such as ISO 13485, 60601, Machinery Directive, CE, IP, and IK classes. We will not shy away from any engineering issue.

For this project we were asked to design and develop an intuitive jam dispenser for the hotel sector in collaboration with our client Menz & Gasser, the largest jam producer in Europe.
Sketches are an important tool we use at GBO to explain decisions, refine designs or simply capture ideas. At GBO, many design processes start with so-called ‘blue sketches’: fast, competent visualisations of a concept and ideas without needing to reach for design software.
