When engineering expertise meets passion.

We are real team players.

GERIMA stands for enormous innovation and development power in all product lines. This goes back to a well-balanced approach in the Management.

What began more than 30 years ago as the engineering office of Stephan Rieth (Dipl.-Ing. SFI) has developed step by step into a national and international success story since GERIMA GmbH was founded in 1992.

Stephan Rieth is the founder, managing partner and driving force behind GERIMA. Growing up as a farmer's son with 4 siblings, his career was shaped early on by hard work and the guiding principle of treating animals, nature and machines with care.

The trained machine fitter and graduate mechanical engineer with additional training as a welding engineer (SFI) dealt with the subject of weld preparation and edge processing at an early stage.

During his 10 years as sales manager and head of application technology in an international group in the field of gases and gas/welding technology, he quickly recognized the potential for new effective beveling machines in many discussions with customers, in order to meet the modern and often automated welding processes, according to the motto "A good weld preparation is half the welding".

By recruiting Ralf Dappers (Dipl.-Ing.) in the area of commercial management with a focus on financing, controlling and marketing and Dirk Siffrin as a lawyer in the area of commercial management with a focus on sales, personnel and general administration, he brought the right executives into his team to position GERIMA for the future and to internationalize it.

All GERIMA employees are part of the success. Mr. Rieth considers his employees to be co-entrepreneurs, especially those who have been on the same path with him for a long time, and thus expresses his appreciation, which means that - without the help of all those involved - this success would not have been achieved and the future success story could not be continued in the same way.
