Oil prices resume upward march
- article at CNNMoney (March 22, 2011)

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- After a slow start to the trading session, oil prices moved higher Tuesday as investors continued to focus attention on the conflict in Libya... Prices trended up, despite a report claiming oil supplies in the region have not been disrupted outside of Libya so far.  - excerpt from CNNMoney article (March 22, 2011)

Just how high must fuel costs increase to get manufacturers to re-evaluate shipping costs?

Improve your shipping efficiency by loading more units per truck or container. This can be done by using a mattress wrapping machine that maximizes compression to reduce overall volume of packaged goods.

Teknomac TK306 Roll Pack Machine

GSG partner, Teknomac, will display how this is done at Interzum with their TK306 Roll Pack Machine. The TK306 has a unique method that adjusts for optimal final roll-packed diameter after an initial compression stage. This ensures your final packaged product is as small as possible on the TK306.

You may have no control over the rising costs of fuel, but you do have some control over your logistics costs. Take advantage of the opportunity to improve your packaging and shipping efficiencies with the Teknomac TK306 Roll Pack Machine.

See the TK306 at the GSG booth at Interzum (Hall 9.1, Stand C-020) or visit the GSG web page: TK306.

The first .com domain name in the world is registered today in 1985

Daily TWiP - The first .com domain name in the world is registered today in 1985 - NashuaTelegraph.com (<< click headline to read more...)

Most still consider the internet as new technology still in it's infancy. But actually it's been over a quarter century since the first "dot com" name was registered. Technological advancements can be funny that way - sometimes we don't appreciate how long we've been using some "new" technology.
In 1985, Gribetz International introduced their first 3 needle-bar multi-needle chainstitch quilt machine - the DG900. This style of quilter quickly became the standard of the bedding industry. Several DG900's still remain in use today.

Symbolic.com, the first registered .com name, has faded into obscurity for most, but Gribetz International remains an icon of leading-edge technology in the bedding industry. See current Gribetz quilt machines here, and visit the GSG booth at Interzum to see the most diverse line of quilters ever displayed at one time.

We'll also pay tribute to the long, innovative history of Gribetz International in a special display in our booth, Hall 9.1, Stand C-020.

Unveiling new 'super-machines'

Lamborghini Unveils New Aventador Supercar Product Design and Development ( << Click to read full story)

Lamborghini recently debuted it's latest high-speed sportscar at a European car show. It does a a top speed of 217 miles per hour, but only averages 13 miles per gallon of gas.

GSG will unveil our latest high-speed "super-machine" at Interzum Cologne 2011. Like the Lamborghini Aventador, it's designed for high-speed performance, but the difference is: it's designed to be much more efficient - like the lean manufacturing operations it may be placed in.

Admittedly, this new GSG machine is not as glamorous as a high-end Italian sportscar, but it won't cost as much either. It doesn't have vertical Lambo doors, but there's alot more you'll be impressed with when you see it run.

Meet us at 9:00 am on May 25th, in Hall 9.1 Stand C-020, for the unveiling of the newest, fastest innovation from GSG.
