Digital Products International, formerly Dick Proctor Imports, was founded in 1971 in St. Louis, Missouri. It began operations as an importer of factory brand consumer electronics from the Orient. With the inception of the Gran Prix Electronics division in 1973, the Company began designing and contracting for the manufacture of products under its own brand name, "Gran Prix." This evolution continued until the line was entirely composed of items exclusively designed and manufactured for Gran Prix Electronics. In 1985 the name was formally changed to GPX, Inc.

In 1986, the Dutch company Hagemeyer, N.V. acquired a majority interest in GPX. Over the ensuing 8 years, GPX continued to grow by adding new categories and continuing to build its relationships with retailers and consumers.
