Knoke Beschlagtechnik

Traditional values and ideas for tomorrow – since 25 years

As a medium-sized and family-run business we feel ourselves committed to traditional virtues. The foundation for our activities is laid by confidence. We therefore maintain long-term business relationships  and place the continous company development above the short-term profit.

With almost 20,000 roller shutters per year we are proud to deliver just as many customised solutions for our clients.

However, we do not content ourselves with the success. But we are also going to create trendsetting solutions with and for our customers in the future.
