Business development

More than 60 years of experience

GMW Machines is an independent, owner-managed company based in Ennepetal and Potsdam. Our well-rehearsed core team at the German GMW location works closely together with the worldwide network of leading technology and service partners, trained and audited according to the strict GMW quality guidelines.

Cooperation becomes a company
GMW Machines was founded as an independent company in 2013. Therefore the two managing directors Dipl. Ing. (FH) Larsen Priebs and Dipl. Ing. (FH) Holger Wirths officially merged their activities in the field of mechanical engineering. They have been working closely together since 2004.

Both entrepreneurs have decades of experience in mechanical engineering. Dipl. Ing. (FH) Larsen Priebs made an international name for himself as an employee of well-known German engineering companys. Dipl. Ing. (FH) Holger Wirths is the successful owner of Wirths GmbH, a German trading company for used machine tools, sheet metal processing machines and presses that has been operating internationally for more than 60 years.
