From ideas to success

50 years ago, Eugen Gutsche recognised the unique properties that needle felts had for the filtration industry and envisioned a new generation of sophisticated filter media. As it was not yet recognised how important air pollution control would be one day, Mr. Gutsche was well ahead of his time. The company founder developed a family-owned company from modest beginnings, this being managed by his son, Michael Gutsche until 2016. The company was integrated in the American Lydall Group at the beginning of 2017. The integration supports the corporate growth in the long term in addition to it strengthening the position of Lydall Gutsche in its core markets.
