For more than 25 years, the GUG has supervised company histories. In doing so, it supports authors, editors and clients in all phases of historiography – from the conceptual phase to the manuscript ready for publication. The projects are manifold: alongside studies concerning particular aspects of the historical development of a company there are anniversary publications that comprehensively document the history of corporations.
Over the years, the GUG was cooperation partner for the Baden-Badener Unternehmensgespräche, the banking house Metzler seel. Sohn & Co. KG, the Bundesverband deutscher Banken (BdB), Deutsche Bahn AG, Diskont und Kredit AG, E.ON AG, Heraeus Holding GmbH, Knorr-Bremse AG, Landwirtschaftliche Rentenbank, Linde AG, Lombardkasse AG, Melitta GmbH, Optische Werke G. Rodenstock GmbH, and Sparda-Bank Frankfurt (Main) eG.
On the basis of its longstanding and multifaceted experience, the GUG can offer a comprehensive array of services from a single source. It creates cost estimates and time schedules, searches for and guides authors, researches sources, designs contracts, selects the appropriate publishing companies and organises the presentation of books.
The managing director of the GUG, Dr. Andrea H. Schneider
, will happily offer information or advice at any time.
