About us:

The history of the KONNEX Group is characterized by tradition and a continuous striving for innovation and quality. Its roots go back to 1947, when Roelof Gunneman founded a Dutch trading company. Under his visionary eye, the company continued to develop.

In 1999, the purchase of a renowned importer of Italian chains marked a milestone that led to the change of name to KONNEX B.V.. This change marked the beginning of a new future for the company, expanding its global presence and portfolio of high-quality products.

In 2000, the German KONNEX GmbH was founded in Mettmann, initially with a German partner who imported Load Securing products from China. The path soon led to further development and the company moved its headquarters to Velbert in 2007 to meet its growth requirements.

In 2004, KONNEX Ltd. was founded in China, marking a significant step in the company’s strategic expansion. As a wholly-owned subsidiary, it concentrates on the manufacture of customized OEM Products, focusing on high-quality materials such as metal, plastic or a combination of both. With state-of-the-art production facilities and quality control in accordance with European standard ISO 9001, the plant in China sets benchmarks for efficiency and quality.

In 2013, the KONNEX Group’s position was further strengthened by the acquisition of Ruthenbeck. This strategic decision expanded the company’s portfolio and strengthened its position as a provider of high-quality load securing products.

With the introduction of the LIGHTBELT product in 2018, KONNEX set another milestone, adding an innovative solution for the elevator industry to its product range. This underlines the company’s commitment to continuous development.

With a strong foundation of experience and expertise, the company continues to strive to meet the needs of its customers and set new standards in the industry.
