GFS Group: Competence in the forging industry

Sack & Kiesselbach co-operates in Chinese operation with Dreher, Bechem and Ferrostaal.

A large number of processes and suppliers are involved in the production of forged products. On the demand side this means a great deal of time and effort expended to co-ordinate the different manufacturers involved in the project.

New offer for the Chinese market

Since the autumn the GFS Group has been offering a solution for this problem - initially for the Chinese market. The consortium of four companies came into being based on many years of co-operation and offers all the services required integrated into the package -  from the initial feasibility study, to process definition up to the turnkey system including a customised financing package and maintenance contract. International clients profit from the combined skills and experience of the Group.


Four companies - one supplier 

Four traditional German companies back the GFS Group.

    • Sack & Kiesselbach with its turnkey hydraulic press systems, provides the mechanical core of  massive forming systems.
    • Dreher brings its skills as an automation specialist.
    • Bechem provides high performance lubricants for the very different areas of use.
    • Ferrostaal, as an industrial service provider with financing skills, has the expertise to co-ordinate complex projects with different participants successfully.

„Together with the GFS Group we can offer our Chinese clients an attractive, customised complete package that our product range complements perfectly.“

The GFS Group exhibited to the interested public for the first time in September at the “China Forge Fair Conference 2015” in Shanghai. The Group acted as a diamond sponsor at this event. It’s still too early to report on specific results. However, initial reactions are very promising.

We’ll keep you in the Loop.
