GSD changes name into ODS Belgium

GSD, part of ODS Metering Systems, will proceed under the name of ODS Belgium. Following the acquisition of GSD Automation in May 2019, the name change is consistent with the ways in which both companies collaborate with each other: moving from a business partner into a corporate partner for metering control and automation.

Corporate partnership pays off 

Wim Ponet, general manager ODS Belgium says “it was a logical choice to change the name GDS into ODS Belgium, because we are officially part of ODS Metering Systems and are complementary to each other.” Being part of ODS Metering Systems pays off: “We are able to accelerate growth in software development, new technologies and employees to serve our clients, now and in the future. Since May last year we’ve expanded our team with five new employees. From the establishment of GDS in 2006 we’ve worked together with ODS Metering Systems, so you can say it’s all brought together in our name now,” concludes Wim Ponet.

Benefits for all

Erwin Hogendoorn, CEO of ODS Metering Systems is excited to drive a successful corporate partnership with ODS Belgium: “Since the start of GSD in 2006 we are working closely together and our businesses are an extension of each other. Customers of both our companies will benefit of the added value resulting from the combination of our organizations. GSD’s know-how and services in the field of metering control and automation and ODS Metering System’s quality and long-standing track record as a global and independent integrator of custody transfer metering systems. Our integration to operate as one company will secure our position in the current and future market.”
