About Us

GACC Philadelphia was founded in 1989 as The German-American Business Association of Philadelphia by an energetic team of business people.  Our mission has always been to promote the development of trade and investment opportunities between the United States and Germany. Our current membership includes small, mid-sized and large manufacturing companies, service providers, nonprofit organizations and individuals.

GACC Philadelphia is an integral part of the network of German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHKs) with 130 offices in 90 countries around the globe.

The AHKs have three main goals:

  1. Official Representation of German Companies
    AHKs are the key players of German foreign business development on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. They represent German business interests in their countries and they inform about and promote Germany as business location.
  2. Member Organizations
    AHKs are member organizations for companies actively involved in the bilateral business relations. These members give them the authority needed when interacting with politics, business and administration in terms of promoting the bilateral business relations.
  3. Service Providers to Companies
    Under the brand “DEinternational” AHKs provide services to companies both from Germany and their host countries in order to support their foreign business activities.
