History
It all began in monastery Löwental

KTW is your competent partner for complete solutions from manual handling technology and dedicated fixtures to fully automated systems.

Milestones in the company's history were the construction of the new company building in 2003 in Friedrichshafen Gewerbegebiet "Seewiesenösch" and the extension of the building in 2008. Since 2010 Nadine Weißhaupt has also become involved in the management of KTW and is leading the commercial division. In 2012, the KTW K. Weißhaupt GmbH celebrated its 25th anniversary. With the appointment of Michael Reitter as Technical Director in July 2015, a clear sign for the future of KTW has been set.

With a lot of expertise and creativity we find special solutions in engineering, especially in load bearing, clamping and mounting devices. Based on our experience, we are particularly strong in the development and production of semi- and fully automated systems.
