Our vision and commitment as market and technology leader

We strive to deliver customer benefits through innovation and conservation of resources. At the same time, this approach helps us achieve sustainable development of our planet for future generations. This is what drives us and is also reflected in our global corporate vision FOR A HEALTHIER, CLEANER, SAFER WORLD.

Everything that we do revolves around meeting customers’ needs, recognizing demands from the market in terms of our performance and quality, and ensuring that we are always moving in the right direction to meet these new requirements. Our solutions and products improve people’s quality of life, help preserve resources, and make many processes more reliable. We are convinced that we take responsibility through our actions: for us, for our customers, and for the world.

Global macro trends

CO2 reduction and CO2 storage, green hydrogen, microplastics filtration, and alternative drive technologies: topics that today affect people and make the world healthier, cleaner, and safer also motivate us at GKD. In fact, these are precisely the topics that we are set to focus on even more keenly as a company in future. We are actively investing in the fields driven by global macro trends in order to advance them with our product solutions and create visible progress. All this feeds into our vision and enables our company to work together with the relevant businesses in each respective market to identify and solve problems early on.

“We have consistently broken new ground and faced up to the respective challenges of the time. This has not only made us successful, but also helped us become a globally recognized technological leader and sought-after expert.“
