About Us


Your trusted partner in product manufacturing services and global sourcing solutions.

It started as a game.

Actually, it all started with games. When Grand Prix International (GPI) was founded in 1978, its owner, John Fisher, had just finished a career stint at Milton Bradley Company. He wanted to help more people bring their game ideas to life—without needing technical experience in materials, project management, or custom manufacturing.

Over the next several decades, GPI established itself as a major player in the toy and game industry, all from its unassuming headquarters in Springfield, MA. When John was ready to retire in 1999, his son, Michael, happily took control of the business. GPI remains a family-owned company today.

After the COVID-19 pandemic, Michael decided to expand GPI’s services to support a broader range of clients in search of manufacturing services. He saw firsthand how challenges with supply chains, communications with overseas suppliers, and logistics could derail timelines, budgets, and product quality. He knew GPI’s comprehensive approach and longstanding manufacturing partnerships could help solve these problems.

Today, GPI serves small and medium-sized companies seeking holistic manufacturing solutions, fully managed for them, at a reasonable price. If you’d like to learn more about working with GPI, we’d love to connect with you!
