1986 Founding of the company by Günter and Elke Kammann in Harpstedt. With only 2 other employees, they show a pioneering spirit and take the plunge into independence. An extensive catalogue range with piping, pipe segments and distributor systems in the “modular system“, and completely from their own production is, from the very beginning, an integral part of the product range. Further important mainstays are custom-made products of all kinds, in order to be able to respond quickly and flexibly to customer requirements. In line with the company philosophy, work is constantly being carried out on the improvement of products and processes. The aim is a high-quality, yet affordable range with, at the same time, short delivery periods.
KMH in Harpstedt
Elke and Günter Kammann
1987 Development of the first special machines for their own production.
1988 Development of a new rotating and pivoting (and thus particularly easy to mount) KMH clamping ring. For reasons of cost, the then young company has no patent for this clamping ring, but can only register a utility model. Today this clamping ring design is standard on the market.
1988 KMH sets a new standard for catalogues. “The blue“, with the global clamping ring is a faithful companion for many years and can be found directly on the desktop of many equipment engineers and engineering offices.
1990 Expansion of the product range to include dust-proof rotary head distributors, double rotary head distributors as well as pipe bends in pulled version R=5 D.
1994 Since this time KMH has been one of the few suppliers of pressure-surge resistant pipes (3 bar) on the German market.
