We are very pleased that once again an article about our company GRP will be published in the print edition of AZL Newslight.

Sport, Fun and Team Spirit – The Dragon Boat Race 2019

For the fifth time the GRP paddled together with the FLS at the dragon boat race at the Rursee. With mostly beautiful sunshine and warm summer temperatures not only the competition was great fun, but also the refreshing swimming in the lake during the breaks enjoyed great popularity.


A visit to Silicon Valley – What counts at the end of the day is what YOU make of it

B2Run Run Aachen 2019 – Run away from the rain!

Off to the next round – GRP at the “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” (Grand Prix of Medium-Sized Businesses)

In March, GRP GmbH & Co. KG was nominated for the independent “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” of the Oskar Prenzel Foundation and now one thing is certain: we have made it to the next round!
Just 14% of the 5399 applicants made it into the 2nd stage of the competition – and we are there!


Are you still looking for your problems…

..or do you already find your solutions?!

What the Easter bunny also brings, you have already found one thing – Our new module overviews!
We have expanded our portfolio for you and are happy to bring you up to date with the latest developments in digitisation:


“Open the door and it happens!” – The Aachen Clinic Clowns bring soap bubbles, magic and happiness into everyday hospital life.

“Laughter is healthy” – GRP donates for the Aachen clinic-clowns

Every child knows this saying and the clinic clowns in Aachen make it their business to put a smile on the faces of children and senior citizens. Because laughter has positive effects on the general state of health and promotes healing processes. Humour in hospitals and nursing homes is therefore a sensible complement to medicine.


GRP nominated for the “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” in 2019

The motto of the competition is more important than ever: “Healthy medium-sized businesses – strong economy – more jobs”. The motto of the 25th anniversary year 2019 is “Sustainable management”

GRP GmbH & Co KG was nominated for the “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes 2019”. Only every thousandth company in Germany reaches the nomination list. GRP is one of them – a great success for the medium-sized company based in Aachen.


Happy holidays

We would like to thank you again this year for your confidence in our services. 2018 was an excellent year for us with successes in development and many innovations. One of our goals for the coming year is to build on these successes with great motivation.

This year GRP and FLS had a lot to celebrate – like the award Top100 Innovator, or the nomination for the founder award NRW 2018 – and we celebrated this with our internal Oktoberfest! With Weißwürsten, Brezeln and Oktoberfestbier we were able to toast one or the other time.

Everyone is in the same boat – full steam ahead in the Dragon Boat

A team from GRP and FLS also participated in this year’s Dragon Boat Race at the Rursee in Woffelsbach!
For 13 years a dragon boat race takes place on the picturesque Rursee in the Eifel. Organized and hosted by the Wassersportfreunde Aachen (WSA), it always takes place in June. Four years ago, the GRP decided to combine its summer party with the Dragon Boat Race, and FLS has also been partaking for two years now.
