Our Story

GP Reeves, Inc. was founded in 1971. It has grown to become a leading global provider of engineered dispensing systems and solutions for manufacturing. When the COVID pandemic hit, we went back to the drawing board to determine the best way to lend a hand. Given that our background is in dispensing, we knew hand sanitizer dispensers would be the best way. This is where Defense Dispense™ was born.

Prior to the pandemic, our focus was on industrial dispensing. We have been designing and building a complete line of grease, oil, ambient applied, and heated material dispensing equipment and dispense automation for almost 50 years.

We are grateful that we are a nimble enough company. When this opportunity presented itself we were able to reallocate some internal resources to get the job done.

A key part of this project has been thinking locally. We sourced product from several other West Michigan companies including OMT Veyhl, Primera Plastics, Cusack Manufacturing, New Holland Brewing Co., and more. This allowed us to support our local community while also helping keep the country safe during the pandemic.

In addition to supporting local companies, the Defense Dispense™ line has allowed us to grow our team by nearly 30%. In fact, we’re still hiring if you’re looking for a job! Contact us for more info! 

We are looking forward to continuing to help with sanitizer systems as the state of the world continues to evolve with the COVID-19 pandemic.
