The globalization of the 21st century poses incredible challenges for commercial enterprises throughout the world. However, this development also offers promising opportunities. In the last few decades, it has been precisely the global trends that have developed into innovation drivers. GHM GROUP is a player in this dynamic market development. As a medium-sized enterprise we specialize in implementing these trends in marketable products and solutions faster than many others.
Speed by flexibility
As in literally all segments of industry in the measurement and control sector, the highest level of quality and outstanding service are required. In this regards the innovation cycles are becoming shorter and shorter – implementation of new requirements must occur at an ever faster pace. The GHM GROUP has met this challenge with a consistent strategy.
GHM GROUP's solution: The flexible R&D pool!
In our three strategic business areas of industrial sensors and electronics, handheld measuring devices and environmental measuring technology more than 40 experienced specialists bring their know-how from the respective areas of expertise into multidisciplinary teams that quickly and flexibly develop precisely those products or adaptations that meet the requirements of our customers.
Our business model puts the customer and its requirements first by utilizing the accumulated know-how of our renowned companies under the common brand umbrella GHM GROUP. This enables us to commit to an ambitious and comprehensive joint promise: An uncompromising customer orientation.
Often medium-sized companies focus on local markets and trends. However, we also must adapt to globalization and keep up with these megatrends. Local competences must be bundled to meet the requirements of markets throughout the entire world. It is fair enough to say that we follow the slogan: Think global, develop and manufacture locally.
Strategic planning is a continuous process with which we adjust the fundamental direction of GHM. In this context concentrating on three strategic business areas is of great importance in order to make the best possible use of our potential and resources.
In the strategic business area of industrial measurement technology, we combine the product areas of sensors and electronics. In environmental measurement technology, the product range extends from individual sensors to entire environmental monitoring stations. Mobile measuring devices, indicators and controllers as well as temperature sensors are bundled in the handheld measuring devices strategic business area.
Changes in global population
Through global population growth the demand for food and medical care will continue to grow. In addition, rapid urbanization will further increase. Thus mobility as well as the interplay of the forms of mobility will change.
In an industrialized world as well as in emerging economies, the trend towards a higher quality of life and hence rising mobility continues. The associated increasing pollutant emissions, the growing sensitization of people for environmental topics and the massive environmental problems in the emerging economies and developing countries allow new environmental protection technologies to occur.
With innovative technologies, such as environmental metrology for weather stations, state-of-the-art measuring technology for wind, temperature, moisture, noise emissions and gas levels (CO, CO2), we are preparing ourselves for the tasks of the future and providing the basic data for environmental legislation and its compliance. In this area there is a considerable potential for the further growth of GHM GROUP and the challenge of keeping pace with the growth.
Digitalization & Connectivity
Through the Internet of Things and the use of big data the networking and use of sensors will further increase. To master all this, state-of-the art technology for signal-conditioning, data acquisition as well as data conversion, will be required.
With our approach of networking expertise from the strategic business areas and developing new, market-driven solutions from it in the shortest possible time, we are ideally positioned to serve these growth markets with first-class products and technologies as well.
Future requirements to connect IT components to mechanical and electronic components via a data infrastructure impose high demands on the technology. In this process the networking of embedded systems via communication networks in particular requires a "cyber-physical system" of the utmost complexity.
This trend which is referred to with the buzz words "Industry 4.0" or "Smart Factory", basically involves the industrial processing and networking of large quantities of data and its effective use. We are well prepared to face the challenges in combining and routing analog sensing data into digital signals and further data processing down the line.
Not only in our globalized economy, but also in the area of technology, more and more tasks extend beyond the conventional limits. We face this challenge with a cross-border multifunctional enterprise structure. Under the umbrella of the GHM GROUP are our strategic business units which, with their respective expertise, cover a wide range of market-specific solutions for all important areas of application.
With GHM GROUP our customers benefit from over 200 years of bundled company experiences. At various Centers of Competence our engineers are ready to quickly and flexibly develop solutions that meet the specific requirements of our customers and are in-line with market demand.
An advantage of our group that is second to none.
The GHM GROUP (GHM Messtechnik GmbH) was founded in 2009. However, the history of the tradition-rich brands grouped under the umbrella brand goes back much further. In its current formation as GHM GROUP, the group continues to be committed to the philosophy shared by its founders: Absolute customer orientation, rapid response and first-class product quality!
