We’d like to introduce ourselves

GFOS mbH was founded by Burkhard Röhrig as a small start-up with only a few employees in 1988. The goal was to create something completely new - the starting point of the software family gfos. Today, we rank among the most successful and consistent providers of Workforce Management, security software, and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), providing more than 1,800 customers worldwide with the foundation of digital processes.

Our success is based on team effort

We are facing new challenges every day in our daily work – and we master them together as a team. This is because the success of our customers is also our success. With great expertise, passion and innovative spirit, we help to digitize the processes of our customers and lead manufacturing companies to their goal of realizing Smart Factories. We benefit from over 30 years of successful project experience. However, we never stop – our goal is to constantly better ourselves and our software solutions.

The executive board at GFOS

GFOS is an owner-managed company. Gunda Cassens-Röhrig and Burkhard Röhrig form the general management. In order to take into account the continuous growth of GFOS, the management was enhanced by a form of extended management. It includes Katharina Röhrig (Authorized Signatory and Head of Business Development), Mischa Wittek (Authorized Signatory and Head of Sales) and Dr. Olaf Zwintzscher (Authorized Signatory and Head of Software Development). They all share the strong awareness that the employees working at GFOS are the heart and the engine of the company and that they are the ones who make the success possible. That is why they base their corporate policy on a flat hierarchy and a familial as well as open corporate culture.

We offer our employees a place to feel at home in the work environment – this includes all consequences, because we work together and stick together.

Burkhard Röhrig

As a service company, we know that our employees are our most important and greatest asset. This is why we offer them many benefits and an “open door” policy to provide room for discussion.

Gunda Cassens-Röhrig

GFOS has been part of my life since my childhood. Today, I am very passionate about the collective task of leading GFOS into the future – in order to convince the market with innovative and creative solutions tomorrow and beyond as well as to remain an attractive employer for the people at GFOS. I am willing to show full commitment.

Katharina Röhrig

For me, working at GFOS means working and living in an environment that puts professionalism on the same level as the “heart and mind”. It is great to experience the excitement and energy that come with it.

Mischa Wittek

Mastering digitalization is a big challenge for many companies. We offer innovative solutions that can only be realized with the help of a strong team – and I’m pleased to be a part of it.
