The company Gebrüder Müller Apparatebau GmbH & Co. KG - GEMÜ for short - based in Ingelfingen, Baden-Württemberg, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Founded by Fritz Müller in his parents' garage, the manufacturer of valves, measurement and control systems can now look back on an impressive history.
When the first process valve made of plastic was delivered by GEMÜ in 1964, nobody suspected that this one-man operation would develop into a company with 1400 employees and 24 subsidiaries all over the world within the next 50 years. With Gert Müller as Managing Director, the second generation answered the call of the family company in 2011.
Thanks to its consistent innovation and an emphasis on quality and customer focus, GEMÜ has developed into the world market leader in the area of valve designs for all main and auxiliary processes of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
One core area of expertise of GEMÜ is, for example, its multi-port valve blocks milled from block material. Originally made of stainless steel, these allow a plant to be designed much more compactly and, at the same time, more flexibly. These requirements are also becoming increasingly important in plastic plant engineering. The company's decades of experience in stainless steel block construction and manufacturing produces synergies, which are now also applied to the manufacturing of plastic multi-port valve blocks.
This expertise makes GEMÜ the technological leader in the field of complex multi-port valve blocks made of plastic. With its broad product range, GEMÜ can offer solutions for a wide range of customer groups. This product variety, combined with an active customer focus, makes GEMÜ the right partner for a very wide range of applications in the field of valves, measurement and control systems.
The company also offers state-of-the-art products for the increasing levels of electrification and automation now used in plant engineering. GEMÜ already offers its customers a relevant range of components and systems.
For example, electric actuators for globe and control valves, butterfly valves and diaphragm valves. Depending on the version, these can be equipped with the corresponding positioners or process controllers as standard or connected to commonly used communication interfaces.
The company and its employees look forward to developing new innovations and mastering new challenges in the future together with customers and suppliers.
