Discovery is the beginning stage of your system project. Our industry experts will explore parameters, materials, and, most importantly, your goals to design a system layout that will exceed your expectations. The deliverables for this stage include but are not limited to system layout design, building requirements, and equipment selection.

Systems Engineering

After discovery, we get to work understanding your process flows, your throughput requirements, and your project goals. Even from this early stage, we are active in determining what ROI calculations to use to define the project’s viability. Our system engineers ask the right questions and listen to your feedback. With that critical information and their industry knowledge, the fully vetted system is designed.

Technical Review

Designing your system or process upgrade is a team effort. Our industry experts, design engineers, manufacturers, and service technicians are all actively involved in the creation process. With a fully formed concept, we present it to your team. We listen and take in all the necessary feedback to adjust the concept into your final design document.


The GK Systems group partners with a vast network of trusted installation partners around the world. Our installation advisors accompany the installation team on-site to confirm that the system is installed according to design specifications and answer any questions your team may have.


Once installation is complete, the GK System Advisor will train your team on startup and operation procedures as well as assist with the initial startup. Once the equipment is running, the GK Field Service team member will perform any final adjustments or fine-tuning steps needed.
