Our story or – the "decision" between working at McDonald´s or creating an own Brand. 


Genesis Import GmbH Founder and CEO Dror Harel is an Israeli born with a lot of passion for offroading, adventure and overland vehicle arrived in 2009 whit his family to Germany hoping to spend a few months with the family, to learn a new language and then going back home to Israel. But sometimes life works out different from plans and the Family decided to stay longer. 


When trying to figure out a way of living and looking for a Job, Dror found out that his options were few: either an illustrious career at McDonald´s or to establish his own Brand. 


2010 he founded the company Steppenwolf 4x4 that in 2012 became the Genesis Import GmbH - and since then the Harel Family suitcases are covered in dust at the basement. 






“To see the European Elephants” 


In the Genesis Import GmbH Product-Portfolio one can find many different solutions for the overland enthusiast´s vehicle. 


We strongly believe that when you stay inside your camper to have your morning coffee you will never be a able to discover the elusive “European elephants”, when they stepping quietly out of the woods at the dawn of a new day… 


But if your adventure, like we recommend, happens outside under a magnificent Alu-Cab Awning, holding the fresh brew in your hands, you might have a chance to see them! 



The Bond between Genesis Import GmbH and Alu-Cab


Genesis Import GmbH´s story is strongly linked with the Story of Alu-Cab. 


It was an almost accidental encounter between Dror Harel and Jeremy Berg, the founder of Alu-Cab. 


Two men, so different from one another, but sharing the same dreams and passion about overlanding travel, lead to a great partnership and success! 


Thanks to this encounter Alu-Cab became a Worldwide leading Brand and Genesis Import GmbH an European success. 


Genesis Import GmbH is now shareholder and partner at Alu-Cab South Africa and responsible for the sole distribution of Alu-Cab products in Europe.
