Programmed for further growth

Greatest investments in company history

“We made the most of the positive industrial climate and increased group revenue by 12 percent to 76 million euros (2010: 67.8 million euros).” Dr. Stephan Kufferath, director at GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG, reflects on the company’s business development in 2011 with a sense of optimism and satisfaction. The medium-sized, non-listed corporation manufactures fabric-based media and system solutions for a diverse spectrum of applications. With investments of €10.5 million, GKD has now laid the foundations for further growth. In the company’s two divisions – WORLD WIDE WEAVE (technical meshes) and CAPITAL EQUIPMENT (filter and systems manufacturing) – three of the four independently managed business units were able to record increased revenue. With 8% EBIT and 13% EBITDA, the mildly improved profit situation was satisfactory. On the reporting date, GKD employed 591 staff members worldwide, including 24 trainees. The HQ in Düren continues to employ 388 staff members.
