GC-heat as an employer

Support and challenge

GC-heat represents over 70 years of experience as an owner-managed, medium-sized company developing, manufacturing and distributing industrial heating solutions for a wide range of applications. The areas in which our products are used are as diverse as the customers for whom we make them. From producing and processing all types of plastic goods through chocolate to brake pads or thermal oil systems – products from GC-heat are involved. Or to put it more simply: from the yoghurt with a corner to heating systems for container ship tanks – GC-heat turns up the temperature everywhere.

What makes it all possible are the around 120 employees and trainees working at our Waldbröl site in the beautiful Oberbergischer Kreis district. They are the key to our company’s decades-long success story. Their dedication and know-how are the basis of GC-heat’s innovative products, competent service and professional consulting.

Because there’s only one thing on all our minds: delivering the best solutions for our customers, customised and tailored precisely to their needs – the highest degree.

Leadership attributes

For a constructive working atmosphere

Mutually defined leadership attributes help us to respond individually to each and every one of our employees, create an open and constructive working atmosphere and guarantee cooperative collaboration as a clear objective.

And because a good work climate increases employee motivation, we do what we can to ensure that the members of the GC-heat team can see themselves as what they are: an essential part of our company. That’s why open doors, a comprehensive right to take the initiative and the empowerment of our colleagues are just as much a part of our everyday work as modern, holistic equipment and attentiveness to the needs of our key performers.

At GC-heat that starts on the first day of training.

So everyone has the opportunity to creatively and constructively contribute their individual strengths.

What does GC-heat have to offer?

Because our employees are our company’s most important resource, we do everything we can to ensure that the basis of our success remains sound and strong. The benefits we offer include for example further training supporting both professional and personal development or the opportunity to participate in our comprehensive occupational health management programme.

It’s important to us that you can work effectively. That’s why we regularly invest in a modern look and feel and ergonomic workstations.

What your future colleagues appreciate most about GC-heat is the cooperative environment and pleasant working atmosphere. One reason we have achieved this is that we see flat hierarchies and short decision paths as crucial factors in making people more comfortable in the workplace.

It means that you too can help shape GC-heat.

That we offer you as a key performer a future-proof job at a successful medium-sized business goes without saying. As an employer we are always aware of our responsibility towards our employees. Appreciation for the people who work for us, value consciousness and clear leadership principles are pillars of our sustainable personnel policies and performance-oriented corporate culture.

What does GC-heat have to offer?

Live and work where others go on holiday!

Lush green forests and meadows, clean air and crystal-clear lakes offer excellent recreational value and a high-quality residential environment for the people who live and work in the Oberbergischer Kreis district. And yet the area is far from “the back of beyond”; in fact, it’s the idyllic setting for a thriving business location that offers not only natural beauty and a variety of leisure pursuits to suit different target audiences but also a wide range of educational opportunities, excellent infrastructure and much more.

And thanks to excellent transport links, anyone with a hankering for the big city can be at Cologne Cathedral in three quarters of an hour, on Düsseldorf’s famous Kö shopping street in just over an hour, or ready to take off from Frankfurt Airport in around an hour and a half.
