Creating new opportunities with smarter manufacturing.
Advances in robotics, materials science, AI, computing, and the Internet of Things are raising consumer expectations and challenging manufacturers like never before. These disruptive technologies have also created new opportunities for novel product design and production techniques—many of which use less power, produce less waste, and enable greater speed to market.
Gray’s decades of engineering and automation experience enables us to integrate these technologies into advanced facilities for leading manufacturers around the globe. In recent years, more than 70% of our manufacturing projects have involved international customers. Our experience with Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) spans the full lifecycle of a project from market entry and regulatory processes to construction.
For every customer, a project begins as a series of questions. What’s the capacity? How much power will we need? Where will critical equipment be stored until its ready? We become an extension of your team to understand your unique requirements and deliver the right services and resources. You know your process best; we’re here to design around it to help you achieve your goals and stay ahead of disruption.
We’ve delivered projects for sectors across the industry, including:
