Hans-Joachim and Hermann Giesser talk about the history, culture and plans of the GIESSER Messerfabrik knife factory..“We only make knives that we would love to keep for ourselves.” That is the maxim that underpinned the foundation of GIESSER more than two centuries ago. Today, Hans-Joachim Giesser is quick to emphasise: nothing has changed. He and his brother Hermann are the sixth generation of Giessers managing the traditional knife factory, and they are ready for the future. “We are running an authentic, family-run company that has grown slowly and healthily out of a passion for precision. The knives we create with our 130 employees are honest, solid, durable work tools.”  It is plain to see that the two Swabian specialists believe in manufacturing excellent products from high-quality materials, strive for consistent reliability and have a passion for product development. What started in a small forge in 1776 has become one of the world‘s leading suppliers of quality knives and accessories. Every day, more than 8,000 professional knives are produced at the factory in Winnenden. The Giesser product catalogue comprises more than 2,500 forged and stamped knives and accessories for the food processing industry.  Since the early 1980s, the company‘s global sales have risen sevenfold. GIESSER moves with the times and adapts to the needs of its customers.  “Personal contact with our customers is extremely important to us. We seek dialogue and are grateful for criticism, as it allows us to keep improving and advancing our products”, the Managing Director says. „We are committed to recycling resources such as exhaust heat and water in our manufacture. Our advantage is that we only work with three materials: steel, plastic and wood,” Hans-Joachim Giesser explains with regard to the company’s sparing use of resources. All waste steel is recycled in full; some of it is melted down and reused.  We also recycle coloured plastics. Once mixed into black plastics, they become virtually invisible and make excellent handles. And he wants to go even further. GIESSER is considering various approaches to optimising its knife disposal system, for example. It will be a long process, but we are tackling the task with confidence and optimism.
