Career with the Gaerner-Group

We do this personally

We, the Gaerner Group, are a brand of KAISER+KRAFT EUROPA GmbH and a subsidiary of TAKKT AG. As a strong sales brand within the Group, we ensure that our customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland receive an all-round, worry-free package covering all aspects of business equipment.

Our claim “We do this personally“ is not only a claim, but also our standard: We want to reach our customers personally and inspire them. Not impersonally or anonymously, but approachable. For us only a satisfied customer is a good customer. That’s exactly why we’re always looking for fellows-in-arms! New colleagues who are thrilled every day anew to provide the customer with all-round service and who are only satisfied themselves when the customer is satisfied.

We look back on a long history, founded in 1941 by Friedrich Hubert Gaerner who initially focused on the trade with industrial supplies and welding equipment. In 1987 we became part of the KAISER+KRAFT group of companies that supports us with various services. This allows us to concentrate on our core business: Being close to the customer with our sales teams and customer service. Our own small marketing team ensures that gaerner appears as an unmistakable brand. As specialists in the DACH region, a total of 70 employees now work in our group, 30 of them in our headquarters in Duisburg
