Company profile

The Gestra CZ Company makes high quality machines and production lines for stone and concrete splitting. Thanks to long-term mutual cooperation with quarries and continual innovation the GESTRA brand has become a world leader in manufacturing and supply of splitting machines from the smallest to the largest ones that split stone blocks. Especially their use as far as quality, service life and output on the hardest materials, such as granites, gabbros, diorites and basalts is unmatched in the world. Thanks to thorough analysis of design and equipping of our machines by a special hydraulic system, these machines achieve the top among our competitors. We supply this technology, including auxiliary Gestra type manipulation and transport devices, for more than 20 years, as the only manufacturer in the world.

We produce a wide range of machines to split various stone sizes with various splitting strength. The splitting strength from 16 to 1200 tons allows processing of all splittable rocks, and producing of split products from the 4/6 mosaic, paving stones, and construction stone to stone blocks with dimensions 800x1600 mm even from the hardest to split materials. Our other products include splitters for cut stone slabs and concrete product splitters operated both manually and automatically. Our machines can split all splittable rocks, and thanks to their design also very hard rocks, such as granite, gabbro, basalt, andesite, diorite, porphyry and quartzite.

While consulting with our customers, we create projects of production lines in different combinations with conveyors and other equipment. For example production lines that are equipped with very sophisticated manipulators save time, increase productivity and make work easier for workers.

Almost all our machines can be modified according to customers' wishes in order to achieve maximum output and production efficiency. Therefore it is necessary for our customers not to be afraid to ask detailed questions not only about our splitters, but also about production and work management. Ask our clients. You will not be disappointed. To our clients we also offer tours to locations, where our machines operate, in order for them to get to know our machines, obtain more information about their operation, organization of work and other information. We are primarily concerned with your satisfaction with our machines.
