Two modern factories - a consistent quality standard

 

 

From the beginning the headquarters of our company is located in Kirchhundem-Albaum (North-Rhine-Westphalia). Product development, marketing and sales, as well as administration are located here. In addition, plug and socket systems and special products are manufactured in the Kirchhundem-Albaum factory. The factory in Freiwalde (Brandenburg), built in 1994 and expanded many times since, has state-of-the-art production facilities for fully-automatic manufacturing of unique CEE plugs and connectors as well as a highly-effective logistics centre

 

 

Customer proximity: You can rely on us

 

 

Always close to the customers. For us, this is no empty phrase but reality. Flexibility, customer orientation and the ability to quickly respond to short-term requirements are a matter of course for us. For this reason, integrated production - from the product idea and design to tool making and production to the shipment of the products – is optimised for short processing paths and the fastest response times
