Founded in 1991 by Stephan Rieth, an engineering graduate and qualified welding engineer, GERIMA has been developing machines and production processes ever since. Since 1994, the company has focused on designing and developing beveling machines for use in the manufacture of mobile cranes, railway vehicles, containers and ships, as well as in the plant and pipeline construction sectors. GERIMA's machine tools and power tools are mainly used to create the accurate welding bevels needed when preparing welding joints. They are also used to create visible bevels and functional bevels and for edge rounding prior to the painting or coating surface.
