Guntermann & Drunck (G&D):
German hidden champion to celebrate 35th anniversary

Admittedly, it’s not the best time to celebrate an anniversary. We therefore postpone the festivities until later, 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 medium-sized 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 and airports, on ships, TV & film production studios, the chemical and petrochemical industry as well as in the energy sector.

KVM equipment lets you bridge distances up to 10,000 metres between monitors and computers. They prevent disruptive heat and noise emissions at highly complex computer workstations and also enable access to fallback systems to make control rooms fail-safe.

How everything started

The company was founded on 22 July 1985 by the name givers Udo Guntermann and Martin Drunck as well as Reiner Ruelmann as third managing director. Soon, they started with the development of first components. 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.”
