Our values

History of KEK

Our company was founded in 1991 under the name “Königsbrücker Edelstahl- und Küchentechnik GmbH“ as a supplier of Thielmann AG and HAKA Metallwarenfabrik Hans Kappes, Weinbach. With 20 employees, the foundation of today´s success was laid in Königsbrück.

In 1994, KEK began to develop its own ranges of products and to put them independently on the market. Furniture for building material laboratories and cleanrooms was manufactured. The decisive reason was the knowledge that the young company will be only capable of surviving if the supplier becomes an independent company. The analysis of the market situation revealed that, in particular, the material stainless steel is becoming increasingly important in capital goods.

With the relocation of our company in 1996 to the new company premises in Laußnitz, we parted with our original name and called us with immediate effect KEK GmbH. The crucial factor here was that the range of products had been constantly developing beyond the original catering technique.

Since then, the production area has been expanded several times to the current area of 6,000 m².

Starting in 2000, the progressive acquisition of the shares of the company TEKA B.V. in Amsterdam was carried out. In 2006, TEKA also acquired the remaining shares of Thielmann AG. Since 2006 the TEKA Group is the sole shareholder.

Nowadays, the KEK GmbH is a powerful medium-sized company and operates in the German and international market. For this, a close cooperation with our customers from the idea to the technical implementation is a key requirement.

140 people are currently employed in the company.

As a subsidiary of the globally operating TEKA Group with today´s headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, we use the manifold opportunities of the Group.

The success of our company KEK is based on the fascination of stainless steel. We work passionately. Our products are timeless. KEK is reliable.
