About GKS Perfekt

Made in Germany. Invested in North America.

GKS-Perfekt offers lifting and moving solutions for commercial and industrial applications. With offices in the American heartland (Springfield, Ohio) and high quality engineering and manufacturing in Germany – we offer the best of both worlds with quality German products and excellent customer service here in America.

Our Story

Origins & Growth

Georg Kramp began GKS-PERFEKT in Stuttgart, Germany in 1967. Our name represents the vision of our founder, the city where it all began (Georg Kramp Stuttgart) and high standards we apply to all products and services (PERFEKT.)

To better serve North and South American clients, GKS-PERFEKT established an office in the United States in 2005.
With Folker Hemmann as General Manager leading the charge, the North American presence of our company – GKS Lifting and Moving Solutions LLC – was born.

We pride ourselves in being a German company that has invested in North, Central, and South America to not only grow our business, but to help our customers and partners grow.  We offer excellent US customer service and immediate support from our sales team.  We are here as a project partner helping move heavy loads throughout the manufacturing, rigging, and construction industries.

Experience the Difference

Trust. Responsiveness. Quality. This is what you can expect from GKS Lifting and Moving Solutions.


GKS partners with clients to deliver and even customize the moving solutions they need. That partnership is the reason for our 50+ years of global success. It’s the reason why you will find GKS hydraulic toe jacks and dollies moving heavy loads everywhere around the world.



Our US office and warehouse allows us to drastically cut lead times to ensure our customers receive products when they need them. Items usually ship within 24 business hours. From your first point of contact to frequent interactions with our sales team, you will speak with local equipment and technical experts who are familiar with your account and individualized equipment needs.

High Quality

We meet DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 manufacturing standards. Every jack and dolly is thoroughly tested and inspected – and is shipped with a test report to prove quality assurance. Every GKS product comes with an extensive warranty. We stand behind every product.
