Company History

G+K Umformtechnik GmbH was founded on February 22, 2000 by Mr. Normen Gröschl and Dr. Michael Kunkel.

The staff in those first hours contributed 30 years of experience in press construction and metal forming.  Thus, from the very beginning, the young company was able to compete against renowned competitors.

The company chose a building in Königsberger Straße 14 in Niedernberg as their first provisional headquarters.  The first major projects already demonstrated the innovative character of the company as these included e.g., fully automated machines for punching riser slugs in aluminum rims. Likewise, a machine able to bend car gearbox shift forks in large-scale production to an accuracy unknown until then. Also a decoiler for coil weights of 30 tons was already realized in G+K's first business year.

Due to the dynamic company expansion, a move to larger premises in Nordring 68 in Niedernberg was necessary after the first year of operation.  G + K has purchased this piece of real estate in the meantime.

For manufacturing and technology exchange, G+K cooperates with the machine building company Rudolf Kunkel Maschinenbau GmbH in Bessenbach.
