Innovative, consistent, sustainable

the Goetze KG Big enough to serve, small enough to care

How do you ensure safety under high pressure? Which valve do I need for demanding processes? Where can I find a manufacturer who can produce a unique safety valve for me and deliver it quickly? You know the challenges in your production. We have the means to master them: the development and manufacture of valves of all kinds is our profession. But it is also our passion - and has been for 70 years.

Family business
and hidden champion 

During this time, we have steadily developed into a hidden champion with an international market. Nevertheless, we have remained a classic family business, which is now being managed by the 4th generation. A family business with a strong set of values. Down-to-earthness, reliability, customer loyalty, helpfulness, conscientiousness and loyalty are the foundations of our work and our attitude. In one sentence: "Big enough to serve, small enough to care."  

With precise craftsmanship and custom-fit manufacturing, we drive our customers' ideas and product innovations forward - customer-focused, solution-oriented, flexible and always in brand quality to care.

COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITYWe don't just think about tomorrow since yesterday 

A society that lives with nature, not from it. A blue planet that will still be a green earth tomorrow. A world that makes a happy life possible - is that not the goal of us all? The key is to act responsibly - with awareness for the environment and with prudence in economic decisions. As a company for which sustainability is not just a trend and an empty phrase, we see ourselves as having a responsibility towards our society, nature and the economy. Our goal is to fill this credo with life on as many levels as possible - for example, in our cooperation with trustworthy partners and in the improvement of work processes. Our certificates, for example, are a sign of our reliability and safety.

FROM THEN UNTIL TODAY A history with milestones 

Today, we are a globally active company with subsidiaries in Europe, the USA, China and South America, for example. With our fittings and safety valves, we are among the international innovation leaders. But even great success stories begin with a first small chapter: the path leads back to 1949, when Gerhard Götze founded Goetze KG Armaturen in Ludwigsburg. Expansion of the portfolio, the manufacture of individual special products, expansion to other continents: chapter by chapter, the success story continued - right up to the present day. On the route: numerous milestones in the art of engineering.
