Gericke Group, a family owned business since 1894, is celebrating 130 years as a processing equipment manufacturer.

Now a 4th-generation company, Gericke Group was founded by Walter H. Gericke in 1894 in Zurich, Switzerland. Gericke pioneered the design and development of an array of powder processing equipment advances for automating mixing, milling, feeding, conveying, and other bulk material handling processes. Now led by 4th generation Managing Director and CEO Markus H. Gericke, the family owned manufacturer serves the food, pet food, chemical, pharmaceutical, battery, and other industries from nine facilities in Europe, Asia, South America, and North America.

The company's newest engineering advances include custom continuous mixing systems, the new Nibbler lump breaker, the RotaSafe rotary valve rotor protection system, and the GUC-F Universal Feeder Controller that automates control over multiple weighing, dosing, and feeding systems. Gericke also offers a complete range of automated powder handling equipment solutions such as pneumatic conveying systems, feeders, rotary valves, mixers and blenders, bulk bag unloaders, and sack tipping stations.

Gericke also increased its technical field service engineers and offers on-site maintenance checks, upgrades, and repairs. Design engineering, testing, and custom equipment development are also offered. Gericke continues on its growth trajectory and recently expanded its manufacturing facility by 55% to accommodate current and projected demand.
