Year Founded:

The 2G Energietechnik GmbH is 2G’s core of operations with the module production located in Heek. The company was founded in 1995 by Christian Grotholt and Ludger Gausling, whose last names were the foundation of the company’s name '2G' at that time. Over the years, however, the company’s name more and more reflected the nature of the products sold: the combined generation and transformation of energy: electricity and heat. For both the production site as well as the headquarters of the service center, the main drive of their operational activity lies in the highest of quality, flexibility, as well as customer proximity and quick response times. Due to the particularly close integration of global sales and service partners as well as other 2G Energy AG affiliates, it is possible to always respond quickly to customer requests. In addition to the de-centralized, local German service stations (all of which are only a maximum of 100km away from any 2G module German wide), there are also sales and service centers in the North and South of Germany, both of which are connected to the 2G Energietechnik GmbH: 2G South in Amerang / Bavaria as well as 2G North in Hamburg. Furthermore, the establishment of a liaison office in Turkey has already laid the groundwork for future success in Southeast Europe.
