Our History

An eventful history since 1863

An eventful history since 1863 © GEZE GmbH

From two craft businesses to a global technology company

Our story has promised excitement from the outset. The master turner Georg Friedrich Vöster, the mechanic Max Wessinger and the businessman Friedrich Carl Bauer first founded their own companies in different locations – until joining forces and laying the foundation stone for GEZE. A ground-breaking decision and the beginning of a long success story: because today – more than 150 years later – we are a globally active family business whose innovative solutions make buildings more comfortable.

What we stand for

GEZE Principles

We are proud of the history and achievements of our company and its employees. Our success and our growth are based on principles that we trust in, but which we also continually question – and further develop.

What sets us apart

GEZE quality

We set ourselves the expectation of continually optimising the quality of our products, and so naturally meet the quality management demands of DIN ISO 9001.

What’s important to us

We focus on sustainability

Sustainability is a focus area of the future and is one of our corporate guiding principles. Sustainability characterize our day-to-day activities in all areas – both with regard to our production processes and our products. This awareness is also reflected in our many years of membership of the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council).

Bei GEZE haben wir verstanden, dass Gebäude einen entscheidenden Beitrag dazu leisten, den Energieverbrauch und somit auch die CO2-Emissionen nachhaltig zu senken. Smarte und energiesparende Lösungen stehen somit für uns und unsere Kunden mehr denn je im Fokus.
