Leading manufacturer Gispol comes out of the shadows to pitch its range
Making a splash at WTCE was Gispol, until now a behind-the-scenes manufacturer of plastic tableware for the airline industry.
A family-owned company, Gispol is located near Lisbon and has dedicated itself to the airline market since its first aviation contract with TAP Air Portugal. It became the exclusive production manufacturer for Helios in 2000 and produced rotable, disposable, injectionmoulded and thermo-forming products including trays, glasses and cutlery, until Helios was bought by gategroup in 2012.
Gispol offers an end-to-end service, concept to delivery, with in-house design studio. It claims European quality with competitive prices thanks to direct sourcing, in-house manufacturing and independent logistics. Services include 3D prototyping and printing and Gispol also offers cardboard, eco packaging, stainless steel and amenity kits through its trade partners. It has an airline-exclusive contract with fine porcelain company Spal. gispol.pt
