Manufacturing Consultancy

Modern aviation, aerospace and defense manufacturing plants rely heavily on automated processing systems and material handling equipment. These must be maintained and operated, and the workplace organized in a manner that ensures high levels of productivity, quality, and customer service.

GP Strategies has delivered productivity improvements for manufacturing clients in the consumer packaged goods, process, energy, heavy industry, metals, and life sciences industries. Our operational excellence program integrates critical systems of work to achieve consistent, highly-efficient manufacturing. This includes other techniques, such as RCM, TPM, and FMEA, to assist manufacturers in recovering lost ground and achieving best-ever performance outputs.

Construction Management

We specialize in delivering best-in-class construction management for aerospace and defense manufacturing facilities. Our multidisciplinary experience in design and engineering, procurement, construction, inspection, maintenance, and repair enables us to excel in the construction building and management of specialized facilities.

Our construction management team embodies the certifications, skills, standards, accountability, and proven track record to consistently provide on-time and on-budget delivery. From individual task management and field office support to third-party oversight and comprehensive project management, you can count on us to get the job done.

Propellants, pressurants, process

Safe use of gaseous and liquid chemicals in chemical manufacturing propellants for space exploration, pressurants for industrial and high-tech applications, and other high-risk projects requires the utmost care. From initial procurement to use, disposal and storage, our holistic handling and management solutions help keep your workforce and your business safe.

Our solution combines the six areas of core pressure systems expertise – Design and Design-Build, High Purity Fabrication, Piping & Pressure Vessels, Customer Gas Delivery Systems, Asset Management, and System Mechanical Integrity – for maximum safety and efficient use of hazardous materials.

Safe management of your manufacturing operations

Whether you currently use, or plan to use, gases and liquids in your processes, GP Strategies can help with the safe management of everything from new process system design and fabrication to ongoing maintenance and inspection of existing assets.

  1. High Purity Fabrication

    Our specialized panel fabrication system and assembly process follows industry cleaning and assembly protocols. This includes orbital welding, precision cleaning, and clean room assembly to reduce system contamination from hydrocarbons and other particles.

  2. Piping & Pressure Vessels

    We oversee system specifications; designs per National Consensus Pressure technology codes and standards; verification & validation procedures and performance test requirements (complete, integrated, and functionally verified); National Board R-stamp repairs and/or alterations; and nondestructive testing/examination.

  3. Asset Management

    Our engineering technical services consultants advise and coach your staff to better understand equipment asset costs and risks against the desired performance of assets. Optimization software enables the application of analytical approaches towards managing an asset over the different stages of its life-cycle.

  4. Custom Gas Delivery System

    Our services include design and fabrication of specialized gas delivery panels, purge systems, reclamation systems, fill & test systems, pressure control systems, manifold systems, gas mixing systems, and test panels used in manufacturing activities. Remote and discrete control are available through PLC control systems.

  5. Design & Design-Build

    GP Strategies offers specialized design and build of components, systems and structures.

  6. System Mechanical Integrity

    Using the OSHA Process Safety Management compliance methodology, we perform life extension/fitness-for-services; life-cycle sustainment; and asset management.
