Let us take you on a virtual tour of GETA interieur, our family business based in Germany’s southernmost region, the Allgäu. Join us as we explore our various branches, introduce you to our qualified team and show you what we mean by “responsible conduct”.
At GETA, the following question is of paramount importance: What can we do for you? Our answer: GET A solution! This is both our ambition and our promise to you. We are your reliable partner when it comes to outstanding interior solutions for rail vehicles – from ceiling systems, air ducts, panels and partition walls to tables, cabinets and floor or toilet systems. Beyond this, we also provide the GETA complete solution – from product development to support with initial assembly – competent, efficient, cost-effective.
Managing Director and founder
GETA mbH was founded by graduate engineer Robert Buhmann in Wangen im Allgäu in 1986. Thanks to a strong inventive spirit, a clear focus on solutions and expert craftsmanship, GETA quickly gained a reputation as a manufacturer of high-quality interior solutions for rail vehicles.
The joint venture in China, which was successfully established in 2006, came to an end in 2020. We continue to actively cultivate the resulting contacts and the strong relationships with our partners.
In 2014, we expanded our headquarters in Wangen by around 3,000 sqm. One year later, in 2015, our subsidiary GETA Rus was established in Moscow. In 2019 and 2021, we took advantage of various opportunities to expand our site in Wangen by a further 5,000 sqm in total.
Today, GETA ranks among the market leaders. At our Wangen headquarters, over 130 employees strive to find the optimum solutions for our customers.
Strong team, strong performance
We are proud of our team of highly trained employees. An invaluable combination of new ideas and irreplaceable expertise enables all our teams to work on a cross-generational, solution- focused basis.
Our long-standing experience and profound competence are complemented by values that define our Allgäu region. You can therefore depend on our inventive “tinkerer’s mindset”, our unsurpassed awareness of quality, our down-to-earth approach and our absolute reliability.
In other words: we know what we’re doing! And we will only be satisfied when we have found the optimal solution for you.
Our competence centre for floor systems is located in Doberschütz. This facility enables us to develop, test and produce tailor-made products to suit your individual requirements.
As a global player, we can react flexibly to your requirements. Our stable and reliable international connections are important to us, which is why we work hard to maintain them via regular visits to all of our sites.
As one of our region’s major employers, we offer our staff secure jobs and good opportunities for further training.
However, as a company with strong roots in this area, we also like to make an impact outside of our business. For example, we support numerous sports and music clubs and get involved with the local fire brigade and regional festivals.
On the one hand, we offer young people sound future prospects through school-based educational partnerships and, on the other, we help to tackle the current problem – felt most acutely in craft trades – of filling our training vacancies.
GETA goes green
We work and live in a beautiful region, and we want it to stay that way in the future. Therefore, under the motto “GETA goes green” we invest sustainably – and with profound conviction – in measures to protect our environment and climate. We attach great importance both to generating energy from renewable sources and to using environmentally friendly forms of personal transport. For example, rather than disposing of the residual wood from our production facilities, we use it as fuel for our heating system.
- In-house power generation via photovoltaics for in-house consumption
- Air conditioning and heating via geothermal energy
- Heating energy production using residual wood
- Company bicycles for factory traffic
- E-bike financing through our company
- E-mobility for customer visits
- Charging station for electric cars
