BUILT AROUND YOU
GKS packaging understands that no two packaging requirements are the same. That's why we have designed modularity and flexibility into our machines. This allows us to build a solution that not only perfectly suits your current demands, but can also develop and expand with your changing needs.
GKS is a family firm specialized in high-uptime, no-nonsense, cost-effective, flexible packaging solutions for all businesses. GKS was founded in the family garage by father and son Eli and Ivo Geukes in 2000. The sale of three machines in their first year helps the duo finance a drilling and milling machine, lathe and welding machine. In the second year, the company moves to the Ekkersrijt industrial estate.
In 2017 the company moves to a new facility at Steenoven 18 in Eindhoven, where the adjacent plot offers scope for expansion. Over the past 20 years, GKS Packaging has grown from two to 26 employees and developed one new machine every year on average.
We currently offer a broad, integrated range of standalone machines as well as complete weighing and packaging lines. Our vertical form, fill and seal machines are entirely developed, designed and built in house. We also offer weighing systems, dosing systems, conveyor belts and platforms built to customer specification. Today, more than a thousand of our solutions are installed on all continents.
Our aim is to challenge the status quo and make your life easier with smarter machines and processes. Find out what we can do for you today!
