Our philosophy and values

The Future needs Tradition.

With the founding of the company in the year 1892, Johann Friedrich Gietz laid the foundation stone of this traditional Swiss family-owned company. The goal of the company was to sell and repair the letterpress and lithographic printing machines of the German manufacturer Klein, Forst & Bohn (later Johannisberg) in Switzerland. This innovative entrepreneur embodied values such as hard work, reliability, quality and punctuality, which still enjoy the highest priority today. With these fundamental values, the Gietz company has now enjoyed success for more than 100 years.


Innovation needs Strategy.

To be the best, you must aim all your strengths at a single goal. This strategic principle enables innovations which are only possible if you focus on the core competence and the precise, fast and uncomplicated realisation of the customer’s requirements.


Added value needs High-tech.

Gietz concentrates on machine technologies which are well recognized by the printing industry as top quality products from professionals for professionals. All machine systems meet the highest quality demands, offer utmost accuracy and a guarantee of long durability.
