With the founding of the company in the year 1892, Johann Friedrich Gietz laid the foundation stone of this traditional Swiss family-owned business. In the meantime, the 4th and 5th generation have taken over the management.
It has become almost a family tradition that each Gietz generation develops a new machine model. Their researchers and developers ensure that the latest findings from the global user community and from Gietzown research flow continuously into the different machine models.
Gietz is and will remain a pioneer in his trade and participates in this worldwide most important event for the graphic industry since the very first time: 60 years Drupa, 120 years Gietz!
For decades now, Gietz has concentrated on the technology fields of foil stamping, embossing, combination foiling and embossing, hologram transfer and tray forming. Machines from Gietz are recognized by printers and converters worldwide as industry leading products from professionals for professionals.
Gietz is also a byword for reliability in the security industry. The Gietz machines are able to fully demonstrate their flexible performance in the application of OVDs on to banknotes, official documents and in the trademark protection field.
Digital workflow is one more focus of attention. Due to highly professional die and corresponding foil coordinator systems stamping can be linked with foil estimation, price calculation, order processing and machine setups.
