GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services Inc has remodelled existing warehouse space to accommodate six more direct metal machines and doubled its office space to accommodate new staff.

Historically focused on building metal prototypes, GPI has been growing the portion of its business dedicated to additive manufacturing (AM) and has added a metallurgical and metals applications engineer to its production and engineering departments in 2014.
