over 50 years experience

For 50 years, Gewerbesiedlungs-Gesellschaft (GSG) has been a well-known part of Berlin’s economy. Student protests and squatters, the fall of the Wall and the government relocation, New Economy and its crash, cluster strategy and startup boom – catchphrases such as these represent not only the exciting history of Berlin but also that of GSG over the last fifty years.

The continuous work of GSG is closely linked to the development of the city and, in particular, to that of the Berlin industry. GSG has always been an important part of Berlin’s urban and economic development. Here, at more than 40 locations, GSG offers small and medium-sized businesses, which form the backbone of Berlin’s economy, the right space to realize their business ideas. Not infrequently, products and services “made in Berlin” emerge, which often extend beyond the borders of the capital.
