The success story of the KÖHL group of companies began in Trier (Rhineland-Palatinate) more than 40 years ago. Demonstrating a tremendous amount of courage to go their own way, couple Edith and Wilfried Köhl founded their electronics business in 1971. Just eight years later, the company moved to its larger production premises in the industrial estate of Trier-Euren.
In the years that followed, the company expanded into the areas of switchgears (1986) and mechanical engineering (1987), further developed the areas of energy, intralogistics and automation (2002) and relocated its headquarters to Wecker in Luxembourg. These days about 600 employees are responsible for our growth performance- developing highly-specific solutions where we are the proverbial one step ahead of the competition.
