Processes

At the heart of Germany, at the heart of the action

We manufacture in Germany by tradition. We work with ultra-modern machinery, which enables us to produce large quantities and to stock the products in our own warehouse so that we can react to customer requests at any time. With the continual optimisation of our processes, our prices remain marketable. We focus on lean processes, well-structured organisation and a high level of motivation, since our employees are our experts.

We manufacture directly at our headquarters in Alzenau-Michelbach. We have always individualised our work processes, optimised structures and quality, and modernised technologies as well as infrastructure in their efficiency and environmental friendliness. Our highly qualified employees know what matters. And that’s important.

Toolmaking

Injection moulding process

In the injection moulding process, hot plastic melt made of PP (polypropylene) is injected into a cavity at high pressure. We use this process to produce our planters.

Blow process

In the blow process, a hot plastic hose made of HDPE (high-density polyethylene) is inflated in a two-piece tool at high air pressure. We use this blow process to produce our watering cans.

Warehousing capacity

Always available

Geli products are always in stock when gardeners need them: for the gardening season. We run our logistics centre with more than 32,000 m² storage space in Freigericht-Bernbach, where every product is available at all times. Short distances, lean structures and the proximity to the A 3 motorway hub guarantee that no customer has to wait long for their Geli product. With regard to production, warehousing and logistics, we act according to two principles: a reliable, smooth service for our customers and respectful treatment of the environment.

Sustainability

We love nature – and we love what we do.

We focus on energy-efficient and resource-conserving technologies in all business sectors: for the best possible ecological benefits, for our contribution to climate protection and for nature on our planet.
It is not for nothing that our slogan is ‘Goods for green’. We are completely serious when we speak about doing good for the green places on our doorstep.To name just one example: it is a matter of course for us to only purchase electricity 100% of which is obtained from renewable energy.To the same extent as the optimisation at an ecological level, we endeavour to achieve ecological benefits. For this purpose, we focus on the constant improvement of our processes in all business sectors and the use of the latest technologies. This means that we are gradually replacing our current production machinery with new machinery that is highly energy-efficient.

ALL OUR ENERGY FOR MUCH LESS ENERGY

The certified Geli energy management system

Development and progress have always been our two most important goals. And so we are very pleased that we are coming one step closer to them again. This time, with our extensive energy management system, which was certified in spring 2015 by TÜV Hessen. In this way, we guarantee and likewise undertake to treat resources carefully. Environmentally compatible production, environmentally friendly products and the sparing use of energy create the basis for our commitment to sustainable climate protection.

WE ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY: AS A MATTER OF CONVICTION

The Geli code of conduct

Of course, we are a business-oriented company. But we work with and for people. And we are firmly convinced that this commits us to act humanely and to assume social responsibility. To emphasise these values that are so important to us, we have decided to make a binding code of conduct the basis of our action. We are therefore a proud signatory of the code of conduct to implement ethical and social principles of the German Association of Plastics Converters (GKV). All the employees at Geli are thereby under an obligation to always conduct themselves in a fair and respectful manner towards other people and to orientate themselves towards the international provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition, our customers, partners and suppliers can rely on us to comply with strict regulations against corruption and anticompetitive agreements at all levels of our business.
