GEALAN Innovation mit System

Our inspiration - to fascinate people!

With the most innovative window systems, surfaces and best in class digital solutions, we set the main trends and form the framework for the world of windows.

System Provider GEALAN

The GEALAN group of companies is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of plastic profiles for window systems and doors.

 

GEALAN profiles are designed, manufactured and distributed in-house. They are the basis for making window systems, doors and modern sliding solutions that are strikingly beautiful, exceptionally robust and particularly secure – and equipping them with top thermal insulation values. GEALAN manufactures the extrusion tools used for profile production in its in-house, highly automated tool shop.

 

As an innovative system provider for plastic window and door profiles, GEALAN can offer its partners a comprehensive range of services. Our architectural consulting and construction engineering services support architects and planners in their everyday work. Intelligent tools simplify planning and tendering. Training courses and seminars bring our partners up to date with the latest GEALAN solutions.

 

Across Europe, GEALAN employs more than 1,600 people and generated an annual turnover of more than EUR 325 million in 2021. Since 2014, GEALAN has been part of the family-run VEKA AG, based in Sendenhorst, Westphalia.

Management board

We at GEALAN are inspired anew every day. The goal of our daily work: we want to fascinate and inspire people with our actions and solutions. We can confidently say: GEALAN Fenster-Systeme has started a real trend with its highly innovative plastic profile systems, surfaces and digital solutions and forms a framework for the world of windows.

The backbone of our family-owned company is our people. With us, employees are able to grow. At GEALAN, new technologies and increasing digitalisation allow for new experiences and open up new competencies for the entire organisation. On account of our constantly growing store of knowledge, we not only increase the competitiveness of our company, but also contribute to the successful development of our business partners.

Together with our partners, we strive for future growth. We are driven by the systematic development of innovations and the continuous improvement of our processes. The basis for this is the appreciation, team spirit, trust, open communication and professionalism of all those involved: with these corporate values, GEALAN’s employees have defined themselves how we all deal and work with one another. Not only within our group of companies, but also with our partners and customers.

Wherever we actively serve markets with our systems for windows, doors and sliding solutions, we want to be perceived as an innovative and reliable business partner. Knowing our customers’ needs and finding new solutions together is a matter of course for us. That is just as much a part of GEALAN’s corporate DNA as practising sustainability. Our success in the field of environmental protection proves that economic growth can also be in harmony with nature.

 

Our team consists of young and experienced colleagues from all over Europe. With their healthy mix of differing training, backgrounds and areas of expertise, but also with their passion for the new, our employees are a guarantee for the future viability of our company.
