04.04.2018 - Commitment is rewarded

For several years, the company GOK has adhered to the
philosophy of actively supporting its employees by providing
them with further training. “We are well aware of our employees’
potential and of the future challenges surrounding the need for
qualified technical specialists and managers,” reports Gerald
Unger, Managing Director of the company GOK. “In terms
of the forecast shortage of technical specialists, we view the
investments that we make in the training of our employees as
being a key component in securing the future of our company.”

The commitment of the company and the willingness of the
employees to take part in after-work training has recently been
rewarded. At a ceremony that took place on 02 March 2018
in Würzburg, the best graduates of the 2017 German Chamber
of Commerce (IHK) further training examinations were honoured
for their efforts.

Ms Lara Dürr was awarded the Master Prize Certificate for
her excellent efforts during her qualification as an Bachelor
Professional of Human Ressources Management (CCE).

19.02.2018 - Why the hissing noise is necessary

Who has not experienced or heard it before: You turn on the
valve of the gas cylinder and it hisses. Indeed the operator does
not smell any leaking gas, but there will be still a little queasy
feeling. Is something wrong with the gas cylinder? Maybe the
hose line is leaking?

To dispel any concerns, GOK has attended the subject matter
and explained it in the latest video tutorial. Generally you will not
have to worry about if it hisses while opening the gas cylinder
valve. On the contrary: it is even necessary for the operation.

15.01.2018 - GOK Honours Milestone Employees at Christmas Party

At the Christmas party on 21st December 2017 at the Hotel
Maritim, Managing Directors Dieter Kleine and Gerald Unger
presented awards to 40 milestone employees at the company
GOK. All in all, the event was attended by 270 current and
retired employees.

At the Christmas party, employees were honoured and
presented with awards for their many years of commitment,
loyalty and hard work. The milestone employees are those who
have spent 10 or more years at the manufacturer of regulators
and fittings; some, however, have been at the company for 35
or even 40 years. These figures also reflect the philosophy of the
company: motivated staff are supported and challenged through
company-supported training and further education so that they
stay at the company for as long as possible. In the ideal case
scenario, this benefits both the employees and the company.

In their speeches, Managing Directors Gerald Unger and
Dieter Kleine announced another record in terms of turnover.
The forecasts for 2018 are so promising that in the first half
of the year, GOK is planning to complete much of its production
on the basis of two-shift operations. Dieter Kleine, Managing
Partner of the family business, expressed his thanks to all of
the employees once again and emphasised both his personal
recognition as well as his pride in the entire team. Such were his
words: "Without this excellent team, such a successful year
would never have been possible!"

As before, the management team will continue to strongly
support the motto of the company GOK: reinvesting the earned
profits in the company on a continuous basis so as to be fit for
the future. As the third generation of management, the daughter
of the company owner, Evelyn Kleine, will also be helping to
shape this task. In her statement she expressed her thanks for
the warm welcome she had received in the departments in which
she has worked, and stated that she is looking forward to the
future collaboration.

20.12.2017 - Video on the use of an excess flow device in LPG installations

Do you know from which length of the hose an excess flow
device is obligatory? Or where the safety equipment is installed?
And how does it work exactly?

All these questions - and a few more - are answered in the latest
video tutorial on the GOK´s YouTube channel. Particularly
exciting and helpful is a test in which we document the function
of the excess flow device.
