The Knecht corporate group

The company was founded in 1928 by Otto KNECHT as a construction company at the corporate group’s head office today in Metzingen.

What started out as one single company, is a powerful SME construction company that operates all over Europe, which is still family-run and managed with passion and creativity by Rainer Knecht today. Mr Jürgen Maute joined the Otto Knecht GmbH & Co. KG management board as Mr Günter Knecht’s successor in 2007.

The company divisions range from the production of precast concrete to the construction of prefabricated cellars to system construction and its special product line of metal greenhouse equipment with CNC machining.

The corporate group operates several production and sales sites in Germany and Switzerland. The products are sold all over Germany and Europe.
