GKD – made in Germany
GKD-Gebr. Kufferath AG was founded in Düren, Germany, in 1925. The company is still under the ownership of the founding family to this day. It is run by brothers Ingo and Dr. Stephan Kufferath in the third generation, Lara Kufferath in the fourth generation, and Markus Kosel. For more than 90 years, the technical weaver has been a technological leader thanks to the continuous development of products, solutions and services on the basis of high-performance, application-specific mesh designs. The industry mix ranges from the automobile and aerospace industry, medical and environmental technology, raw materials and mining, the chemical, pharmaceutical, foodstuffs and textile industries and the wood and paper processing industries, right through to applications in architecture and design.
