“Quality is the product of attention to detail.”

Andreas Tenzer, German philosopher

Our Company

GSR Gustav Stursberg GmbH is your manufacturer for high quality thread cutting tools. With 130 years of operating experience in the field of threading tool production, our portfolio includes a large selection of products for many different areas of application. Whether for threading in home or professional use, for model making or the restoration of vintage cars – you will certainly find what you are looking for here.

GSR taps, twist drills, dies and holding tools are manufactured to the highest quality standards. The constant quality control during the manufacturing processes guarantees a constant good quality in all manufacturing plants at home and abroad. This requires enormous precision, which is reflected in our tools.

Because: Precision is in the detail. Since 1889.

Our history

Already in 1889 , the company Gustav Stursberg was founded in Remscheid, Germany. At the beginning, roll forged taps and die stocks were produced. There was no independent sales division at that time. Over the years, however, Remscheider exporters began to ship the “GUSURE” products all over the world. Only in the 1970s , an independent sales unit slowly began to develop in order to manage the increasing demand of wholesale and retail in GSR products in Germany and abroad professionally.

Product qualities and productions have also been a subject to change over the course of time. In the past, tools were mainly made of silver steel. Later, high speed steel gained more and more in importance. Nowadays, most of our products are made from HSS.

Founder: Gustav Stursberg (1893)
