Our experience and history

GURTEC has a rich history dating back more than 50 years. It’s a story that began in a field in Bremerhaven, Germany and which has unfolded to become a tale of global success featuring more than 100 passionate people who support hundreds of operations around the world.

It’s passion that has driven GURTEC’s success, along with the belief that quality German-precision products, produced by great people with first-rate skills and expertise, could support industries across the world.

GURTEC’s team revolutionised the way conveyors operate in the 1980s through the development of plastic coating for steel rollers and frames – rewriting the production rules and industry quality standards.

Such skill and passion continued into the new millennium as GURTEC joined forces with new partners to expand its services and reach. In 2017, GURTEC became part of the global NEPEAN network – increasing our abilities and capacity to meet customer needs well into the future.

It’s a future that’s bright and ever-evolving as new technology, sustainability standards and globalisation unfold.

GURTEC embraces that future by continuing to focus on the ‘assets’ that have served us best for decades – our people. Through the skills and expertise of our people and their commitment to high-performing machinery and products, we can build a success and sustainable future for all.
