A shining example of leading technology and innovation

GKD: Federal Minister Wanka visits Düren

With its outstanding solutions for industry and architecture, the medium-sized technical weaver GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG (GKD), which is now in its third generation of private ownership, is the world market leader. The secret to this success are wire mesh structures that make a contribution toward meeting global needs in the areas of water, nutrition, mobility, health, climate protection and the conservation of resources. Thanks to an agile culture of innovation, GKD has turned the traditional art of weaving into a key technology for numerous industries. The company is also pressing on with the digitalization of business processes in order to strengthen its current leading position through matched, innovative product/service systems and a sophisticated global multiplatform strategy. This was sufficient grounds for Prof. Dr. Johanna Wanka, Federal Minister of Education and Research, to visit this model example of a high-performing German SME. Together with her Parliamentary State Secretary Thomas Rachel, she gathered information on the company’s latest research activities and its pioneering production environment.
