GUNNAR, the advanced cutting technology partner you can trust.
GUNNAR was first started by Ulf Weissenberger, who began in the industry as a custom framer and framing service partner in 1970, and his son Andreas Weissenberger, who joined the family framing business in 1986.
With their combined experience, they started their vision for the world’s first computerized mat cutter. The goal was to improve efficiency and accuracy of this otherwise tedious and manual task. Official development of the first GUNNAR computerized mat cutter was started 1991. Later in 1992, the first prototype was finally built and production of computerized mat cutting machinery started.
Since then, GUNNAR has now grown into a world-recognized organization, becoming the most popular name for computerized mat cutters in more countries around the world than any other brand. Based on that success story and a long list of industry milestones, GUNNAR can truly be seen as the pioneer in development of computerized mat cutters.
By 2007, GUNNAR decided to use decades of knowledge in digital single ply cutting to enter a second main market segment, the composites and technical textile market.
