Gewiss

COMPANY

Right from the start, GEWISS has always been founded on “development as a constant feature of management” - a principle that has identified every action and choice, with the awareness that change and innovation are the only key to success.


Over the years this philosophy has shaped a company model based above all on continual investment in Research & Development. Thanks to its focus on innovation, the company has successfully tackled many challenges and today it can boast five catalogue divisions, with 20,000 original products and 500 associated patents.


Innovation is the only way forward for future challenges too, because it creates the right conditions for the growth and development of the company's business and of the entire manufacturing chain it operates in. But, above all, because innovation is a part of GEWISS' history and will be a part of its future too.

LIGHTING

GEWISS offers indoor and outdoor solutions for industrial contexts, buildings in the commercial sector, sports facilities, street lighting and emergency lighting. 

INNOVATION

GEWISS was founded in the 1970s, and was the very first to make use of technopolymer; a revolutionary application for the entire sector, already distinguishing the company as a strong innovator 40 years ago.


Over the years, GEWISS' focus on innovation has been rewarded by a staggering increase in the number of products in its catalogue and by the high quality standards it guarantees. From 2000 to today, there has been a 300% increase in the contents of the catalogue, and 400 patents have been registered. The Research & Development Division, with over 180 employees and more than 20 lab technicians, conceives and produces every product with the aim of always maintaining the maximum quality.


This daily mission has also been acknowledged by IMQ (the Italian Institute for the Quality Mark), which certifies the compliance of company processes and products with the national Standards, and has awarded the GEWISS laboratories an SMT certificate (Supervised Manufacturer Testing).

EXPERIENCE

The 1970s - THE BEGINNINGS. GEWISS was founded on a revolutionary intuition: the use of technopolymer in electrical systems. During this decade, the plant at Cenate Sopra (Bergamo) was inaugurated and the company became a Società per Azioni (a joint-stock company).


The 1980s - DEVELOPMENT. The 1980s were characterised by further insight: for the first time, coloured lighting devices were introduced and became furnishing items. In just ten years, the company revenue increased ten-fold.


The 1990s - INTERNATIONALISATION. In the 90s, the technological and production pole of Cenate Sotto (Bergamo) was inaugurated. The opening of branches in Spain and Germany was followed by the take-over of some leading European companies of the sector - NOWAPLAST, SCHUPA and MAVIL.


2000 - THE NEW MILLENNIUM. The new logistics and technological site at Calcinate (Bergamo) was set up, to provide coverage throughout central Europe. The product range increased to 15,000 items, and CHORUS - the international domotic system - was launched. The Group consolidated its industrial sites and sales subsidiaries in Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Spain, Portugal, China, Russia, Turkey, Romania, Chile and the United Arab Emirates, along with agencies in more than 80 nations worldwide.

GEWISS GROUP

Today, GEWISS is an international group with approximately 1,600 employees, operating in 80 countries across the globe. It has 7 production sites (4 in Italy, 1 in Germany, 1 in Portugal and 1 in France), 10 trading/service companies (Germany, France, the UK, Spain, Turkey, Russia, Romania, Chile, the United Arab Emirates and China), and a central logistics hub in Italy (Calcinate, Bergamo).


GEWISS focuses in particular on the new, extended Europe, the Mediterranean, Latin America and the Far East. The company goal is to further strengthen its position in the Italian and current markets, while also expanding into the emerging countries. The number of products in its catalogue is proof of the company's tireless attention to innovation, and its will to meet the most varying requirements.

WE OF GEWISS

Human capital is a fundamental element for GEWISS. Our company culture (in other words the values, attitudes and behaviour of our people) is the one single factor that makes us stand out from the crowd. Those who embrace the GEWISS philosophy and values receive real, solid chances for professional growth, strictly linked to the tangible results obtained.


The training of new graduates and diploma-holders focuses on continuous learning and the development of multidisciplinary skills, via career paths based on job rotation within the various company departments, both in Italy and abroad.


The gradual insertion of young people with special potential, who want to Grow & Stand Out, is undoubtedly an essential condition for sustaining long-term company projects. Development of human resources is therefore paramount: it's one of the foremost elements of success in a highly competitive market that asks for innovation, flexibility, determination and responsibility, personal initiative and team spirit.

GEWISS WORLDWIDE

GEWISS gathers and organises all the technical product-related skills, strategically positioning itself between the market and the production techniques and technologies. It interprets the strategies, maintaining an innovation-based approach and a constantly original interpretation of the technical solutions. 


For 40 years, the company has been designing and manufacturing its products with the most advanced technologies, guaranteeing high production standards in all its branches; the GEWISS name is, in fact, a byword for quality, reliability and safety worldwide.  All its production plants around the world are integrated with each other, and the Italian head office controls and manages all company processes and production technologies in a centralised manner. This means that identical quality levels are guaranteed in all the manufacturing countries.


All this thanks to GEWISS' focus on innovation, combined with a development capacity made possible by the planning of notable economic investments.
