From seller of precision turned parts to qualified systems provider for turning technology

From seller of precision turned parts to qualified systems provider for turning technology
Founded in 1981, GERO GmbH was at that time only a sales company, but rapidly took on new lines of business, beginning to manufacture turned parts itself in 1987. The range of production was continually expanded, and even early on the company began to rely on multi-spindle technology, which was new at the time. GERO GmbH quickly established itself as a supplier for the construction hardware, electrical, and bicycle industries. In the years that followed, the customer base expanded, and new customers and partners were gained thanks to the company’s bold decisions and its dedication to new manufacturing processes.

In 1998, a state-of-the-art, integrated quality management system opened doors to the automotive industry. Over the next few years, the production area was doubled, and in order to adapt to the increasing customer demands, for example clean rooms, another industrial building was acquired for the assembly of system components. GERO, Factory II, was opened!
This was followed in 2008 by the Center for Excellence for Training and Development.
The new Factory III is a location for education, training, and development.
The focus is naturally on the goal of intensifying in-house education and internal training seminars.
