Over 60 years of the Gauselmann Group – a success story under the Merkur sun

In 1957, Paul Gauselmann laid the foundations for the Gauselmann Group, which has since grown into a hugely successful enterprise. Today, the Gauselmann Group’s Merkur sun is recognised worldwide as a symbol of quality, experience, innovation and entertainment.

Still headquartered in Germany, the Gauselmann Group remains firm in its commitment to state-of-the-art leisure entertainment, with products boasting the ‘Made in Germany’ label that’s known worldwide as a sign of quality.

As ever, the Merkur sun is at the centre, around which the individual solutions of the gaming industry orbit – a fitting metaphor for the organisation’s breadth of talent and everlasting desire to offer only the very best in cutting-edge gaming solutions.
