Since GVA’s founding in 1987 by Karlheinz Näser the core competence of GVA is the support of a wide range of industries with individually cast and forged product solutions. The services of GVA went beyond the simple delivery of a product. We support complex individual customer projects – from the idea, the design sketch, to the choice of suitable materials leading to the ready-to-install master piece. All projects and productions are guided and monitored by GVA during the complete process.
GVA’s founder incorporates a vast set of knowledge within the areas of FE materials and foundry technology, which has been continuously implemented into GVA’s projects. Karlheinz Näser invented the modern slagpot with “hammock design” and “elephant feet”. GVA has developed an own quality of steel, the “GVA Special Cast Steel”. This material has a very high resilience within the harsh daily production routines, still maintaining very good welding capabilities, low tendencies for cracking and increased form stability compared to conventional carbon steels.
The influences of the daughter became more and more visible in the recent history of GVA. The technical strengths of GVA were complemented by international business Know How and logistical expertise. The focus was set to financing large projects, securing of currency exchange rates, global freight and total concepts for new production methods. Even though modern IT systems and CAD workstations were implemented at an early stage, today GVA’s designers and engineers are working with 3D CAD systems to perform simulations supporting their product development and perform prototyping with 3D printers.
