Step by step to success
From the classic business enterprise to the innovative industrial company.
In 1923, no-one probably expected that Wilhelm Goerner Sr. was laying down the cornerstone for a family-owned company which would be a prime example of innovations and visions almost 100 years later.
The path of the company has always been characterised by success. With the takeover of the company by Wilhelm Goerner Jr. in 1972, the building of a second factory in Klagenfurt was started. Since 2006, Elisabeth Goerner and Wilhelm Siller-Goerner have guided the family-owned company into a new, successful era as the Goerner Group, with great courage and the proper know-how. The instinct for making the best use of synergies and an eye for the new makes the family-owned company Goerner an innovative industrial company. The most recent example: Goerner Bionics which is researching the possibilities of transforming natural phenomena into technology. One thing is certain at Goerner: The last line of this history will not be finished for a long time yet...
