2019 is off to an exciting start

We can already report news from TEKO

We wish you a successful new year and hope yours is off to a good start. We begin the year with new challenges and look forward to an eventful 2019. With the start of the year we would like to tell you about some important happenings at TEKO.


In December 2018, we signed a forward-looking partnership with Austrian company Frigopol Kälteanlagen GmbH (www.frigopol.com) and acquired a majority stake in the company. Both companies complement each other very well in terms of market focus and technologies, and we will use these synergies in plant engineering to meet future challenges together.

This step is set to further strengthen the KKVB Group’s position in the European market. In addition, we can respond even more precisely to your requirements and offer ideal solutions.

TEKO Co-founder Kurt Kohr is retiring

After a total of 36 years of TEKO, our senior partner and TEKO co-founder Kurt Kohr retired on 31/12/2018. We thank Mr. Kohr wholeheartedly for the many years together, for his business vision, forward-looking ideas and perpetual standing as the ‘good soul’ of TEKO.

In 1982, Edgar Kirschniok and Kurt Kohr founded the TEKO Gesellschaft für Kältetechnik GmbH in Frankfurt am Main. At that time, with just a handful of employees, the focus was on the distribution of technical components. In 1989 we began producing refrigeration units. The number of employees increased to 45 employees before, in May 1994, we moved in our new, larger location in Altenstadt – our current location. Since then, we have continued to evolve and have grown into a company with nearly 200 employees, 6 subsidiaries and 5 sister companies in 10 countries.
