GPE was created at the end of the 1970’s, founded by Giorgio Peroni who already had a great experience in the field of programming and electronics gained in a leading Italian computer company. The company created by him (GPE stands for Giorgio Peroni Electronics) had its principal activity in the projection and construction of videogames. This business saw the young company grow rapidly, soon making itself known in the American market, as well as positioning itself well at a National and European level and above all supplying the technical and electronic know how which were to result precious from the time, at the start of the 1990’s, that GPE turned its attention to the vending market.

From that moment on the principal objective of GPE has been to create vending machines ad hoc, following the specific requests of operators in the market: it is for this reason that the official launch of the DRX25 in 1995 was such a huge success, with thousands of orders: in fact, this was a machine that filled a gap in the panorama of automatic distributors, being a machine of modest dimensions, extremely functional and therefore ideal to place in small to medium sized locations.
From then on, the range has grown rapidly, and now GPE offers a choice of vending machines of various dimensions, capacity and type: refrigerated (spirals), hot drinks, hot and cold drinks, machines at 3°C, machines for ice creams and frozen products….as well as a series of accessories which confirm a great dedication on a functional level.

Now at the founders side his children, Sabrina and Alessio who look after, respectively, foreign clients and production.

GPE is present all over the world with international companies or representatives and is synonymous with quality and reliability…all in Italian style!
