When it comes to tools for professionals, the name Gedore is known around the world for technical perfection, durability, reliability and safety in use. Customers in industry and the craft trades, including such demanding sectors as the vehicle and aerospace industries, or the energy sector, choose the tried and tested products from the long-established toolmakers based in Remscheid, Germany. The company was established back in 1919 by the three brothers Otto, Karl and Willi Dowidat (GE-DO-RE= GEbrüder DOwidat REmscheid), and today it is the parent company of a worldwide group of companies, marketing a range of some 16,000 products. GEDORE's success is down to its uncompromising commitment to quality materials and manufacture throughout the company's history. But equally important is the determination to constantly develop new, innovative tools and enhance existing ones by carefully analysing how they are actually used.
