If you have ever walked through the brightly lit streets of Radio City Music Hall in New York’s Rockefeller Center or Universal Studio Park in downtown Orlando, FL during the Christmas season, you were enjoying the design and production work of Marion’s own local manufacturing company: GP Designs Inc.
GP Designs Inc. was formed in 2003, separating from their parent company General Plastic Corporation to create a new vision and business atmosphere for the production of Holiday Lighting and Christmas Decorating. Today, GP Designs leads as the premier designer and manufacturer in the Christmas Industry! Company owners, Dave and Sandy Loer, were the well-deserving winners of the Spirit of Entrepreneurship Award in 2008.
Though you can find GP Designs Inc.’s Christmas designs all over the nation, you can also find them right in your own backyard: Marion’s Walkway of Lights located in Matter Park features many of GP Design’s brightly lit snowflakes, Santa clauses, candy canes and more!
