“ACHEMA 2009 was an across-the-board success for GKD. Our expectations, which had been rather cautious considering the economic situation, were significantly surpassed, both qualitatively and quantitatively.“ Peter Wirtz, Manager of the business units SolidWEAVE and GKD-CompactFiltration at GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG, draws a positive balance of the company’s presence at the ACHEMA 2009. The package of interdisciplinary innovations that GKD featured at its stand convinced visitors and customers alike. With combined consulting and interdisciplinary strength, the technical weavers showed that their eyes are firmly fixed on the future, in spite of the current crisis. “We are not going to wait around for someone else to take the first step. We are going to be right up at the front when things get started again,” says Peter Wirtz, describing GKD’s plans for the future.
