Intellectual property: around fifteen patented solutions worldwide

The rising awareness of safety issues in the workplace has prompted many companies with warehouses to find reliable solutions to ensure a serene, accident-free working environment for their loading dock personnel. In 1996, Gaétan Jetté, President and Founder of GMR Safety, had no idea of the international impact his vehicle restraint system would have 25 years later. Today, the SME has over a hundred employees on two continents, sharing their expertise with logistics and supply chain giants.

A proven strategy

In November 2023, GMR Safety’s investment in research and development reached 5.53%. This commitment to developing vehicle restraint technology is in line with the strategy adopted by the world’s leading innovators. According to the Top 100 Global Leaders report published by fDi Intelligence last June, it was highlighted that key players such as Netflix, Volvo, Alibaba, General Electric and BMW had dedicated similar percentages of their revenues to R&D in 2022, ranging from 3.67% to 6.22%.
