Ink logistics provider GSE has been announced as a top three finalist at the Metaalunie Smart Manufacturing Awards 2019 – a national competition in the Netherlands, recognising success in creating efficient digital processes.

The annual award is organised by Koninklijke Metaalunie, a confederation representing over 14,000 small and medium metalworking firms across the country.

GSE was among six regional winners contending for the Dutch national title at a gala evening held in the Jaarbeurs exhibition centre in Utrecht, compared by TV presenter Jort Kelder. The title was won by Otolift Trapliften.

‘As providers of ink logistics, we are dedicated to helping our customers in packaging and textiles become more efficient, flexible and faster, and that is reflected in our internal processes too,’ explained marketing director Maarten Hummelen. ‘We take great pride to reach the final three and that our efforts to create smarter and leaner ways of working have been recognised at a national level. Finally, many congratulations to Otolift Trapliften on their well-deserved title.’
