Permanent bonds are our main concern. In all respects. This means the perfect adhesion of two joined surfaces. This also means a permanent bond with our home, our employees, our business partners and, not lastly, our customers. As a result, we have become one of the most notable companies in this sector and one of the leading German companies in adhesive technology since the company was founded in 1999.
As one of the founding partners, Ahmad Katiela has held fast to his vision for this company. In 2004 he assume sole management of GWK Klebetechnik GmbH, effectively expanded the company's machinery and a dedicated production line. Quality management is continuously optimised together with a committed team. Therefore, our customers are guaranteed an extremely flexible, yet efficient and solution-oriented implementation with the highest demands on quality and perfection.
In the meantime, we are represented worldwide as a partner for large companies and have had a distribution subsidiary in the USA since 2006. As cosmopolitan and international as our company may be - Solingen remains our home. For this reason, we have expanded our company headquarters here in North Rhine Westphalia with a staff of 50 employees and a work space of more than 4,500 m2. The Arab roots of our managing director are only vaguely discernible in the architecture of the building.
Our customers repeatedly present us with new product-specific challenges that we gladly accept and implement according to the highest demands. In doing so, we can continuously develop and expand our technical capabilities. In addition, internal quality demands are regularly demonstrated, processes are optimised and new products and technologies are integrated. The market repeatedly presents us with new challenges. How about you? We look forward to it.
