The history of KS started in 1976 with the production of testing facilities for the execution of quality tests on windows and doors. A few years later we expand our range of products with our bending machines to bend plastic window profiles. As a first supplier on the market, Mr. Rudolf Schulten the founder of our company developed a method in order to manufacture PVC profiles to round and point arches.
Our two managing directors Jörg Alsmeier and Horst Anker manage the company since 2002 and 2004. They bought the company in 2007 and operate as managing partners. In all these years the KS test engineering will be developed constantly and will be made popular by the window industry. The KS test centre became known all over the world. Facade manufacturers test the influence of wind and rain on large-scale facades. Also the field of window test engineering became more popular in the last few years: tests for the burglary protection, fitting tests as well as fire and fume protection tests round our range of products.
Since cooperation between K. Schulten and company Täubert, engineering has become one of the biggest department of KS. In the meantime, machines made for window and roller shutter industries include half of KS production capacity. This includes PC-controlled drilling and screwing machines, underfloor saws, machining centers for windows and roller shutters, roll shutter fabrication machines and special machines tailored to customer's requirements.
The fourth mainstay is our department of lifting technology with a large number of transport and assembly machines: light construction cranes, assembly lifts, vacuum lifting machines, assembly vehicles, construction site cranes and transport vehicles contribute to an efficient and ergonomic method of working. Our first priority is given to the quality of our KS products, reliability and, of course, to our satisfied customers.
