What started 60 years ago in a small workshop has today developed into a global player with outstanding expertise in multi-brand diagnostics and workshop equipment.
Kurt Gutmann opened his first workshop in 1968. Besides customer service, it involved a lot of tuning and racing. Gutmann Messtechnik was founded in the eighties, and in 1995 the company launched the mega macs 55. And this turned the world of multi-brand diagnostics upside down and immediately won the Automechanika Innovation Award in 1996. Since then, in the workshop world, the name Gutmann has been synonymous with sophisticated technology and practical support from professionals.
The merger of Gutmann Messtechnik with the family-owned company HELLA KGaA in 2008 was the logical outcome to complement the two fields of expertise. The result was a joint venture which today, as Hella Gutmann Solutions, has over 500 employees and more than 40,000 workshops across 24 countries and is successful in providing workshop equipment, data services and technical services.
