GLORIA - The Original

For more than 75 years, the name GLORIA has stood for high-quality and innovative sprayers and gardening aids. Founded in a small garden shed in Gütersloh in northwestern Germany, the company devoted its efforts towards the development of crop protection sprayers from the outset. Shortly after its foundation in 1947, the production of the first GLORIA hand sprayer set the stage for the corporate success. Since then, GLORIA has consistently focused on the development of pump and pressure sprayers as well as garden products.


Whether in our gardens, greenhouses or households, GLORIA products can be put to use everywhere. Starting with powerful hand sprayers, the GLORIA assortment covers a wide range of pressure sprayers made of plastic, steel and stainless steel. Piston knapsack sprayers with a particularly large capacity of 12 to 18 litres round off the variety of sprayers.

Practical garden tools, among others for thermal and mechanical weed removal and surface treatment, as well as high-performance spray systems for outdoor cleaning and devices for lawn care complete the product portfolio. In this way, GLORIA contributes to providing customers with a comprehensive range of garden products.

Please take a detailed look at the milestones of GLORIA´s corporate success story. 



GLORIA continues to expand its lawn care range

From now on, lawn edge care is easy. The new battery lawn and edge trimmer FineCut 18V is the ideal complement to any robotic mower in the home garden. Thanks to its compact design, the device easily cuts right to the edge and is perfect for the often necessary contour cutting of the lawn. The FineCut 18V is compatible with every BOSCH 18V POWER FOR ALL battery and expands the range of the battery alliance. 

All MultiBrush owners do not miss out! Here too, the 11th attachment has already been developed - the FineCut lawn and edge trimmer attachment. This also ensures the best cutting results on compact lawns and is ideally suited for cutting edges, hard-to-reach corners or overgrown areas around trees and plants cleanly.

World first for flame-cutting equipment: electric ignition in the handle

GLORIA is expanding its range of flame sticks for weed removal with the Thermoflamm bio Professional E+ Turbo. The complete operation including ignition and gas regulation of the device is conveniently done at the handle. There is no need to bend down and ignite it manually with a lighter. A simple AAA mignon cell is sufficient for many thousands of ignitions. Thanks to its innovative turbo nozzle, the burning capacity is increased by up to 10 % while gas consumption remains the same.


75 years of GLORIA - The Original

For three quarters of a century, GLORIA has been providing its customers with innovative products and problem solvers. The yellow-blue appliances are known far beyond the country's borders as quality products that often provide faithful service for generations. 

On the occasion of its anniversary, GLORIA shows that it is far from being old-fashioned and presents a variety of innovative new products. The Hydronette li-on battery-powered fine sprayer is a visual highlight and the symbiosis of gardening tool and design object. Other new products include the handy prima 60 sprayer for spraying seeds and seedlings or the Pro 1200 li-on battery-powered backpack sprayer with BOSCH battery power.


MultiJet System - 1 becomes 3!

Can there be more? We are expanding our MultiJet product range with two more medium and high-pressure cleaners and now offer a 36V and a 230V unit in addition to the MultiJet 18V.

The MultiJet 36V cleans, foams and sprays from 5 to 70 bar in three pressure levels. A 36V/4.0 Ah rechargeable battery provides satisfactory runtime. The handy size makes this lightweight the ideal aid. Whether for cleaning, plant care or after a bike ride: Throw the suction hose into a bucket, the pool or lake or click it onto the tap, select the pressure level and off you go!

The MultiJet 230V really puts the pressure on. With a max. operating pressure of 120 bar, even the most stubborn dirt around the house will give way. The electric high-pressure cleaner impresses with numerous features: three pressure levels and a multi-function nozzle make the device maximally flexible.

All accessory options (foam set, brush set, plant protection set) are of course always compatible with all MultiJet units.

News from the sprayer segment

270° Plant Protection Set: GLORIA offers a new special spray set with 270° spray function to help eliminate plant pests that settle inside of plants, especially on the undersides of the leaves. The best example: the notorious box wood tree moth, which lays its eggs on the underside of the leaves. Here, it is necessary to wet even the undersides of the leaves. This is not guaranteed with a conventional standard nozzle.

Battery-powered compressor: We equip our plastic pressure sprayers with 18 V battery power. The new sprayer compressor joins the compatibility of GLORIA cordless tools with Bosch 18V POWER FOR ALL batteries and is the most powerful compressor of its kind. It supplies our sprayers from 3 – 8 L continuously with up to 2.5 bar constant operating pressure.

The MultiBrush goes on the lawn

For many years, our cordless and electric brushes have been faithful aids in removing dirt and weeds from stone and wooden surfaces. Now we bring the MultiBrush onto the lawn. A lawn aerator and a scarifying roller provide excellent results in lawn care. By working the green area, the nutrient uptake of the soil is optimised. The lawn grows thicker together and becomes more hard-wearing.


MultiJet 18V - Clean, foam, spray

The GLORIA MultiJet 18V is a mobile, battery-powered, high-performance spray system which can be converted into a powerful cleaning device, a foam sprayer, a cleaning brush or a spraying device for the application of plant protection, in just a few steps.

In the basic kit the GLORIA MultiJet 18V is a variable cleaning device, which is equipped with a 4-in-1 multifunction nozzle and a 40 cm extension lance. The operating pressure can be regulated between 2.5 and 24.9 bar in three stages, so that both gentle and powerful cleaning is possible. Whether bucket, lake or tap - a suction hose draws liquid from any source. Powered by any BOSCH 18 V 1.5 - 6.0 Ah Home and Garden battery, the MultiJet 18V is also independent of a power cable and is always ready for use where it is needed. No matter whether in the garden, around the house, stored in the trunk, on the next camping holiday or the mountain bike tour.


From 2020 all GLORIA battery-powered devices are compatible with the BOSCH Power for ALL battery system. This means that all BOSCH 18 V battery variants from 1.5 to 6.0 Ah can supply the MultiBrush li-on, WeedBrush li-on or the brand new MultiJet 18V with the necessary power.

With the integration of the BOSCH Home and Garden battery system GLORIA offers its customers even more flexibility in gardening. Already today millions of BOSCH 18 V batteries are in use in Germany, which can now also be used with GLORIA products. This means no more additional and annoying accessories and one battery for a wide range of BOSCH and GLORIA products.
