Get in contact

This is Gerdes GmbH

Since 1979, Gerdes GmbH has been a stable and proficient partner to some of the largest European Automotive Manufacturers, by providing them with original parts that have gone through rigorous research & development (R&D), extensive testing procedures, to finally being manufactured to the highest standards set. This high level of experience gained over the years, remains anchored in our philosophy of continuous process improvement from R&D to production. Our nimble mid-sized family business pride itself for the dedication of our associates working as one team with much improved communication channels that drive short and effective decision paths to overcome any technical challenge faced. The incessant innovations in our field of expertise have led us to the development products such as fuel filling inhibitors to avoid any costly mistakes of misfuelling, just a token example of products within our wide portfolio of expert solutions relating to the integrity of refuelling and securing fuel tanks. Our size give us also another edge by offering a production flexibility that allows us to manufacture from small volumes required for example by the motorsport sector, to larger volumes to satisfy our high-demand from our global Customers in general.
