Gemu GmbH & Co
"Germany has been Iran’s most important Western trading partner despite the international sanctions on Tehran. In 2012, German firms exported goods worth 2.5 billion euros to Iran. In the nine months from January to September this year, the number was 1.3 billion euros. Haaretz has obtained a list of firms from the German-Iranian Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Tehran, known as AHK Iran in its German abbreviation. The list discusses 'branches, agencies and representatives of German companies in Iran 2012.' AHK Iran, which is partially funded Germany’s Ministry of Economy and Technology, supports German companies in their dealings with Iran. The list, published at the end of 2012, includes the names and areas of operations of 136 German companies that do business with Iran. One company on the list, Bomafa Armaturen GmbH, is a maker of high-pressure valves and specialty valves for use in power stations and industrial plants. According to the company’s website, its equipment is used in nuclear plants as well. Bomafa is represented in Tehran by an Iranian firm, Sinarad Kala Ltd., a supplier of industrial valves and accessories. Another German company represented by Sinarad Kala is Gemu GmbH & Co. KG, based in the German state of Baden-Wurttemberg. The firm describes itself as a leading manufacturer of valves, instrumentation and measurement systems. Gemu declined to respond to Haaretz’s queries." (Haaretz, "German firms sold sensitive equipment to Iran even during sanctions regime," 12/8/13)
