New minds, new ideas, at G-POWER a constant process; every day. The reached aim, may it be even so good, is always an incentive for G-Power to search for something even better. This – also by BMW themselves – lived conviction makes G-Power a strong as a brand. Makes G-POWER a partner of customers seeking for fascination, enjoying (living?) their G-POWER BMW daily and get for themselves the motivation for the challenges of the day.

G-Power history

The 70's

G-Power started in the year of 1971 in Neu-Isenburg near Frankfurt as Esso-filling station. And remained it – despite of or just because of partly "keen" tuning projects - until 1989. Quasi as conservative insurance!

The founders, father and son Grommisch, had always been fascinated by BMW. Since this time the sympathy of G-POWER to "their" brand has been existing! Therefore, the small enterprise had been extended already in first year by an ESSO service center, a workshop and a showroom. This firm soon became a desired meeting point for the BMW fans in the closer and farer surroundings. 200 km's or more to reach us were no problem, since we had everything what the tuning sector - which itself was in the absolute starting phase - had to offer. That was pretty few in the free trade. But at us, there was always a solution. The term "impossible" was also in former times not the reply that the Grommisch guys wanted to present their customers!

And it is that way until today! A foundation pillar of today's G-POWER conception: „Never say never, try to fulfil the desires of your customers whereever possible“: This promise is still valid until today and once more in future! Lived, practised from the first hour. The name „G-POWER“ was invented only 10 years later.

Already one year later, G-Power took over with GS-Tuning, the first representation for selling/distributing tuning parts. Who still knows the brand from Freiburg today? G-Power hadn't been lucky with it – and proudly took over already 1973 the Rhein-/Main-representation of the automobile manufacturer ALPINA instead. They were successful with it for 10 years until the foundation of their own label G-POWER 1983. Despite this the brand know how is already existing 35 years since the commencements.
