Geislinger has announced in its anniversary year that within three fiscal years the company will invest in total 50 million Euros to strengthen the competitiveness of Geislinger on the global markets and pave the way for the increasing number of new products.
With an investment rate of 15 percent of the total turnover the company is investing more than ever throughout its history, 80 percent of the investment will affect the Austrian locations.

In 2018 Geislinger celebrates its 25th anniversary of the Gesilco® product group
Geislinger was the first company to implement shaft-coupling-combinations made from fibre composites for marine applications.
The Austrian-based company distinguishes itself by having misalignment couplings with complex design and shafts with integrated flanges. Besides standard solutions, Gesilco® products are customized for specific applications. Gesilco® products are characterized by their lightweight design by which a weight reduction of up to 90% in comparison to standard solutions can be achieved.
Due to its high manufacturing depth – from development, design, mould design, and construction, everything is handled in-house, fast lead times are ensured. The experienced and highly-qualified Gesilco®-team masters all common manufacturing processes, furthermore ultra-modern test benches are available for all Gesilco® product groups.
Besides classical Gesilco® -products like for instance the Gesilco® Butterfly Coupling or the Gesilco® Shaftline, products like the Silenco® Acoustic Coupling, launched in 2016 or innovative products like the Geislinger Compolight, a street light, purely from fibre composites, supplement the product range. Under the brand name Levitaz, Geislinger furthermore develops, produces and sells innovative sports equipment with a carbon foil for kitesurfers.
“After 25 years in operation, Gesilco couplings have successfully proven, that fibre composites can be used for transmitting components without comprising on security”, confirms Cornelius Geislinger.
