Hydraulic and pneumatic systems have become an integral part of modern manufacturing and technology. They ensure that automated processes can be implemented mechanically.
The Knapheide group of companies has been a renowned manufacturer of high-quality and extremely robust hydraulic systems for many decades. With its parent company, Knapheide GmbH Hydraulic Systems in Beckum, and various specialised companies for precision turning, hose technology, conveyor technology and electrohydraulic control and process engineering, the group is capable of offering everything "made in Germany" from one source.
Knapheide began in 1967 with hydraulic components for international mining and later also for industrial applications.
In recent years Knapheide has developed from a well-known manufacturer of hydraulic fittings, soldering fittings and valves into an ideally diversified supplier for individual and modern package solutions.
Flexibility, reliability and efficiency through individual engineering have contributed to a consistent increase in the market share. At the same time, the requirements and demands of increasingly automated machine design have continued to grow.
Today the entire group of companies employs about 1,000 people on around 50,000 m2 of production halls and supplies manufacturers of machines with hydraulic applications throughout the world.
