About us

Who we are

As a successful, full-range supplier, Golze provides rugs, natural-fibre floor coverings, stair mats and aluminium profile systems, in addition to doormats for every application. Developing our own products makes us particularly innovative and allows us to recognise and implement new trends early on.

Our pronounced awareness of quality and service ensures our close connection to the retail market. Fast retail sales are guaranteed thanks to Golze's field service, which is specialised in providing a full service, and thanks to the provision of tailored presentation systems. Our high-bay warehouse ensures a large storage capacity and therefore short delivery times. Furthermore, Golze stands out as a service supplier with its own finishing service.

We – Otto Golze & Söhne GmbH – give our best so that your customer feels comfortable in their own four walls. And we've been doing so for 140 years.

The Golze collection primarily comprises products from the company's own brand ASTRA. The ASTRA product range consists of natural-fibre floor coverings, doormats and rugs, as well as aluminium profile systems and stair mats. Find out more about ASTRA here.


Otto Golze & Söhne GmbH has a long tradition of building alliances to strengthen the brand. The acquisition of licences for well-known designs and cooperation with renowned designers is yet another approach to satisfying the needs of the market and successfully launching new products.

Belonging to the publishers Gruner & Jahr, the brand “SCHÖNER WOHNEN” – also known as Europe's biggest lifestyle magazine – also distributes home textiles. For example, Golze's SCHÖNER WOHNEN collection includes trendy, colourful rugs and dust-control mats. For more information on the SCHÖNER WOHNEN-KOLLEKTION brand, please click here.

Golze – Your Reliable Business Partner

Authorised Economic Operator

AEO – Authorised Economic Operator

The AEO certificate

We – Otto Golze & Söhne GmbH – have the status of an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO-C). This means we are an especially reliable and trustworthy economic operator that has been evaluated by the customs authority based on criteria such as compliance with customs and procedural regulations, a proper bookkeeping system and financial solvency.


The Approved Economic Operator in international trade

AEO status is an internationally recognised seal of approval that distinguishes us in the world of international trade as “reliable” in terms of international supply-chain management. The AEO certificate therefore represents a mark of quality for our customers and other business partners. Authorised Economic Operator status will become increasingly established in the world of business, and it will become impossible, in the medium term, for internationally active companies without AEO status to meet the demands of supply-chain management or just-in-time deliveries.
