Designing vehicles and components has been the central focus of GS Engineering across markets in commercial trucks, off-highway, and special applications. Each vehicle requires comprehensive design analysis to ensure the component topologies meet system specifications and the system dynamics are properly tuned. Once the vehicle design is ready for prototyping, our team manages prototype fabrication and assembly. GS Engineering maximizes efficiency by maintaining close partnerships with many low volume production process providers. Prototype or early design phase vehicles can reach the field testing phase at lower cost and shorter timeframe. This vendor ecosystem and key relationships allow us to work hand in hand to expedite prototype vehicle builds while adhering to AS9100 quality standards. Our prototype vehicles benefit from our access to the latest technologies for machining, cutting, bending, turning, casting, welding, coatings, finishes, packaging and inspection.

Prototype heavy vehicles and equipment, after completing the design phase, are constructed by mechanics and engineers who have extensive experience in many different manufacturing and quality disciplines, including in-house certified weld inspectors. Our organizational structure allows us to implement design for manufacturing practices from the moment a concept is born, thus accelerating your development phase timing. 

Even at the planning phase, our team of qualified engineers collaborates with your team from modeling through finite element analysis, fabrication, testing, and validation. Each of these vehicle development phases constitutes a gated section of our New Product Development (NPD)  process. By acting as your product development partner, your team retains key oversight of the design criteria and signs-off at each gate before we proceed to the next design stage. To ensure safety and reliability of your vehicle, we are ready for testing at a local test facility with secure prototype testing while collecting relevant design data to refine subsystems. We work tirelessly to deliver a finished product that is on time, within budget, and meets your quality expectations, every time.
