Company history



The more than 125-year history of this Swabian family-owned company combines tradition, modernity and high-tech. It has thus successfully joined the ranks of traditional companies that are actively shaping the future.

This history began in 1882 with the founding of the “Robert Gutekunst Fabrik für blanke Schrauben” (Robert Gutekunst Factory for Bare Screws) based in Owen unter Teck.

The production assortment ranged from screws, nuts and turned parts to profile material. After the war, production was moved to Kirchheim unter Teck.

Entry into deep drilling technology

The continuously growing operations and the owner family, which had become larger over the decades, led to a division of the companies into the Kirchheim unter Teck and Römerstein-Zainingen operations in April 1979 as an independent operation with sole responsibility.

Originally founded in 1958 as a turning shop and agricultural machinery workshop by Heinrich Class, the company was expanded more and more intensively into a deep drilling shop. The initial product range was successfully expanded and since 1979 the technical fields of deep drilling and hydraulic production gained a new importance.

Today, deep drilling is the dominant area of the company.


In 1983, ROBERT GUTEKUNST OHG purchased a 3,000 sqm building site to the east of the leased factory premises for future expansion.

Additional CNC machining centers and other machines were purchased for modernization and new employees were hired.


In 1988, the previously leased factory building and site with approx. 4,200 m² was purchased and a new, modern factory building with a two-story office wing and a 12 m high hall with almost 600 m² for the deep drilling shop was built, which was bursting at the seams. The new factory building was completed at the end of 1990.

Thanks to the continuous acquisition of new machinery and equipment, cranes and lifting equipment, the company is at a level that allows for more technically advanced work.

Since then, the manufacturing and machining capabilities include not only deep hole drilling, turning, milling and welding, but also CNC machining and plate manufacturing (hydraulic plates and heating and cooling plates) as well as complete fabrications.

Since July 20, 2002 the company is certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2000 by DEKRA and is supervised by an internal quality management representative.

New warehouse and production hall
The warehouse and production hall, which was put into operation in 2008, has over 600 sqm.
Usable area & approx. 250 pallet storage spaces.
In the hall is our newly installed portal milling center, which together with our existing large CNC milling machine can process large parts up to Over 10 tons.
In the basement there is a parking space of 300 sqm.
Succession and generation change


The Gutekunst family and Mr Dieterich have handed over their family business, Gutekunst GmbH, to new hands as of 14 September 2018. As part of a succession plan, the company has been handed over to the Egner family. As a result, the tradition of an owner-managed family business is being preserved, while at the same time a generational change in the management of the company has been achieved.

Philipp Egner, an internationally educated young manager, has taken over the operational management of the company as managing partner. His father, Dr Manfred Egner, and Mr Robert Gutekunst will continue to provide advice and support.

Mr Wilfried Dieterich will also remain with the company as Technical Director and member of the Management Board.
