About us and company history

We continue an almost 100-year tradition in radiography.

Since 1995 we have been offering a wide range of radiographic services at our site in Hattingen/Germany.

As well as our uniquely extensive range of equipment, we are also renowned throughout the sector for our high level of quality. This is founded upon the specialist expertise and experience of our employees, most of whom have been with us for many years.

GfR is therefore able to offer virtually the entire range of technically feasible film radiographic inspections in-house, in accordance with requested international standards.

As an owner-managed company, we are interested in fair, trustful and long-term relationships with our customers. To accomplish this, we set ourselves high standards in terms of flexibility, personnel qualification, equipment availability, transparent pricing and an atmosphere that encourages interpersonal communication.

As one of the first ndt laboratories, we have been certified as an accredited test laboratory in accordance with EN17025.

We also support the further development of technical radiography through active membership in international standard committees and as trainers for inspection personnel in accordance with EN 9712.

Our long-term business relationships with our customers and suppliers, and our very low level of personnel turnover, speak for themselves as an outcome.
