|The Gerstaecker family has been suppliying art marterials for over 50 years
The company's initial customers were therapy centres that used art in all its forms to improve the quality of life for those with disabilities. Today, artists from every walk of life benefit from the Gerstaecker specialist ability to source and supply the finest art materials currently available.
Gerstaecker Verlag GmbH is based in Eitorf, a small town to the east of Bonn. Here, in a pretty valley formed by the river Sieg, the company has an ultra-modern 215,000 sq ft distribution centre. At its heart is a state-of-the-art warehouse where 40,000 different products are stocked ready for dispatch to artists all over Europe.
Every year, the company sends out 55,000 parcels per month and serves 500,000 customers throughout Europe. Backed by up-to-the-minute processing systems linked to subsidiaries in France and the UK, the picking and packing process operates day and night.
Still very much a family business, Gerstaecker prides itself on the experience and expertise of its managers and staff whose specialist knowledge of the art supplies industry helps to ensure the efficient operation of Europe's most comprehensive and competitive one-stop shop for quality art materials.
