We are Global Housing Solutions
The company, which is based in Upper Austria, is a part of POS Industries Holding, and is one of the global market leaders for innovative, modular building solutions for social housing. As global system suppliers for PVC-concrete residential solutions, GHS creates perfectly-designed residential units with its patented system. GHS Permanent Homes are perfect for creating permanent housing; detached houses or settlements; villages or educational establishments; office buildings or clinics. GHS offers a mobile house system made from lightweight material panels for the construction of temporary accommodation, which can amongst other things be used as emergency accommodation during catastrophes as it is so simple to build.
In addition to the production of GHS Permanent and Temporary Homes, the company plans, designs and supplies complete production systems (GHS Turn-Key Plants) for the generation of wall and roof panels or doors and windows for GHS Permanent Home houses. The rapid and inexpensive production, outstanding safety and true sustainability make GHS an essential partner in social housing. More than 400,000 houses have already been erected across the world using this fast, safe and simple system.
GHS works socially, economically and forward-looking.
By building GHS production plants (GHS Turn Key plants) for regional companies, we have already succeeded in giving thousands of people a new home - the GHS Permanent Home. The components of this hurricane and earthquake-safe solid house are produced regionally and are erected with local suppliers and workers in a very short time to form solid, livable homes.
With this concept, investors and operators of our production plants are making a significant contribution to improvements in quality of life and housing of the people, while at the same time supporting the region's economy. Ideal requirements for successfully supplying the large demand for social housing.

For us, projects are intelligent and forward-looking if social tolerance combines with innovative technology and excellent returns.
What has happened so far...
The roots of today's GHS GmbH were planted in the early 1990s. Complete systems for extruding PVC profiles were generated by Uniplast (subsequently Greiner Extrusion) and supplied around the globe.
In the middle of the year, the Competence Center of Greiner Tool.Tec was charged with developing a "Composite House". At this time, Greiner Extrusion was already selling systems for producing PVC profiles for a permanent housing solution built from a combination of concrete and PVC.
The subsidiary GHS GmbH (Greiner Housing Solution) was founded in January because of the excellent order situation and high levels of demand.
After 74% was sold to the company POS Industries Holding GmbH in June 2011, the remainder of GHS GmbH was acquired by POS in November 2012.
In March 2016, GHS Global Housing Solutions acquired the patent for its innovative housing system - the GHS ClipPlus System.
