Through the new material “plastic” diverse and completely new production, possibilities are created. The Georg Geiss Machinenfabrik starts with the production of molds for plastic vacuum forming. Through this a new business idea is developed and the production of own thermoforming machines is started.
The company passes over gradually into the second generation with the son Manfred Geiß.
Georg Geiß as the managing director, Manfred Geiß as the technical manager and his wife, Klara Geiß, as the commercial manager successfully lead the business, which continues to grow in the 80s and finally has more than 100 employees. It is thanks to Klara and Manfred Geiß that the company developed from a small hand-built-oriented business to an efficient machine factory.
The new assembly hall, in the Industriestraße, is opened and the old work 1 is closed subsequently.
The new production site is best suited to creating better workflow and with its modern structures, it offers the best conditions for optimal production for years to come.
The company has to say goodbye to its managing director “the Boss” – when Georg Geiß passes away.
From now on Manfred Geiß (the new owner) and Klara Geiß continue to lead the company on their own account in the spirit of Georg Geiß.
Rolf Obermann founds the independent and private GEISS LLC in the US.
The business form is changed to AG.
A new production hall is put into operation
The company employs approximately 150 employees and 20 trainees. In more than 65 countries of the world, technical plastic parts are produced and finished on GEISS machines. These products of high quality are used worldwide in a wide variety of applications.
A record of superlatives!
In the post-war period, master carpenter Georg Geiß (+) moves from Düsseldorf in the Rhineland to Seßlach in comparatively quiet Upper Franconia. Here he and his wife Getrud founded the “Georg Geiß Maschinenfabrik” in 1948, the present GEISS AG.
For years, the company owner Georg Geiß is considered to be “the inventor from Upper Franconia”.
Up to now, the company owes much to his brilliant ideas and visions, the corresponding energy, persistence and the peculiar Geiss assertiveness.
His ideas and innovations are still valid today and are fundamental elements of the company.
Even though he was on the surface the resolute boss and master of the company, the necessary respect was always granted to him, and his employees honestly and lovingly called him “our boss”.
Works I and III are abandoned and relocated to the new, 240 m long assembly hall.
The commercial and technical office, the complete manufacturing of all machines inclusive of milling and turning shop as well as the mould and tool manufacturing are now under one roof at the Industriestrße 2. Path breaking already for the company slogan “one step ahead”.
With the thermoforming machines of the T10 series, Geiss is placing itself worldwide way in front of the other competitors. With its compact design, electrical instead of pneumatic with servo motoric drive, faster, more energy efficient and despite all still attractively priced. The T10 of GEISS AG is leading to a downright order boom. Customer comment: “T10 is consistent tradition.”
