Quality and experience for 190 years
GEBHARDT has been developing and manufacturing efficient logistics solutions for trade and industry for 190 years. The company, with its headquarters in Cham, is already being successfully managed as a family business in the 6th generation. Traditional values have been part of the corporate philosophy from the very beginning. At the same time, entrepreneurial vision and a willingness to innovate have always been the driving force behind change and steady, sustainable growth. Today, GEBHARDT generates a turnover of 75 million euros with just under 400 employees at five production sites worldwide.
The strength of GEBHARDT is a joint effort of all Gebhardtians. Teams in our own development, construction and production work day after day on the optimal products and system solutions for the customer. They are supported by colleagues from all departments of the company. Every contribution is important, regardless of whether it is made in the foreground or background.
A strong management team
"It is a pleasure to be able to take on responsibility as the 6th generation," says Ute Lesch-Gebhardt. Since 2020, Thomas Bauer (COO) and Andreas Schmidberger (CFO) have supported the owners Ute and Franz Lesch as members of the management.
GEBHARDT is one of the oldest family-owned companies in Germany. As a consequence, the family is therefore involved as a member of the board of trustees in the Family Business Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is the promotion, information, education and training as well as the scientific exchange of experience in the field of family entrepreneurship in Europe.
