Sterisol designs, manufactures and markets unique skin care and eye cleansing products for people at work. The products are used in areas such as heavy industry, healthcare, food industry and hotels.
Cenova takes on demanding projects that require ingenuity and precision, and develops/produces innovative plastic devices and packaging solutions for businesses with high regulatory requirements, such as medical devices, food and pharmaceutical.
Gepe Geimuplast develops, manufactures and markets the Q-flex animal ear tags and RFID transponders as well as complex, high volume industrial plastic components for automotive and other demanding industrial areas.
As a family-owned group of companies, business is part of our heritage. That’s why we have a long-term perspective and strive for our companies to be self-financed and autonomously run. At Gepe Group, we are creative, curious, and open-minded to new opportunities. Our companies are what make us proud.
