Gerken Group

Gerken was formed in 1936 by Hubert Gerken with a handful of employees manufacturing carbon brushes.  Today, the third generation of the same family owns and manages the Gerken Group,  directly employing over 250 people globally.

Through our companies, affiliates and representatives, we can call on manufacturing operations across Europe; North & South America; Asia; Australia; Middle East and Africa supported by a fully integrated supply chain.

Research and development is centred on Gerken SA in Belgium, Gerken SAS in France and Pantrac in Germany.

Our vision and philosophy are clear.  We are totally focused on carbon and graphite products and we are always interested to talk to potential representatives who share our vision to be the leaders in this field.
