About us

Our organization

GEA is active in the food, beverage, chemical, pharma, dairy processing, dairy farming and marine industries. Our portfolio includes machinery and plants as well as advanced process technology, components and comprehensive services. Our group structure is based on technologies and includes five divisions, each with leading market positions. The divisions are supported by central, regional and local functions.

From heterogeneous business areas to technologically-oriented divisions

All units are operated by managers with direct P&L responsibility. The divisional structure promotes entrepreneurial behavior – one of the central GEA values – and transparency both internally and externally. It is key to a sustainable increase in profitability. In addition, the proven bundling of activities in country organizations will be retained so that we can continue to offer customers centralized, yet local contacts.
