Admittedly, it’s not the best time to celebrate an anniversary, but the occasion remains: Guntermann & Drunck GmbH (G&D) has been in business for 35 years and is considered one of the hidden champions of Germany’s South Westphalia region. The Siegen-based company develops and manufactures KVM products for extending and switching computer signals, and operates on a global scale. KVM systems from G&D are installed in numerous control rooms around the globe, for example in air traffic control centers, TV & film production studios, the chemical industry as well as in the energy sector.
The company was founded on 22 July 1985 by Udo Guntermann and Martin Drunck as well as Reiner Ruelmann. Today, the medium-sized company continues to grow solidly and employs around 100 people at its locations in Siegen, Germany, and Burbank, CA, USA. “We were already developing KVM devices before the technology even had a name" says Roland Ollek, CEO of Guntermann & Drunck GmbH. “Our company works in a niche occupied by few companies in the world. With our expertise in providing solutions and developing products close to both the market and our customers, we have now become one of the world's leading hidden champions.”
