The Kübler Group: Facts, Figures and Milestones

The Kübler Group was founded in 1960 by Dipl- Ing. Fritz Kübler (†2003) and today is still 100% family-owned.

This means we can operate independently of banks and investors, which allows us therefore to react more quickly and flexibly to market conditions - our success is proof of this.

The turnover of the Kübler Group amounted to 59 million € in 2015.

In addition to the main production facility, the Kubler Group now encompasses 8 overseas and one domestic subsidiary.

The number of employees has also shown dynamic growth.

We attach great importance to high qualifications and ongoing training, as it is our desire to continue manufacturing most of our products in our German factories in the future.
In this way we will not only assure our high quality standards but also continue to create new jobs:

  • Production sites in Villingen-Schwenningen and Otterfing (Munich)
  • approx. 12% of our employees work in the R&D area
