TKM - The Knife Manufacturers.
Reliable products? Naturally! But: TKM has stood for more for over a hundred years. We continuously adapt our high-performance products and systems to the new needs of our customers. We continuously optimize production and business processes together with our employees. Through regular and targeted further training, we prepare our teams in the best possible way. This is how we ensure the highest quality, efficiency and reliability – geared towards the current and future requirements of our customers.
Our team ensures the highest accuracy of our cutting systems: up to 0.001mm if necessary. We will advise you on site about the best possible solution and, if requested, support our customers in the best possible use of our products. Whether you are a new or regular customer, whether you need one knife or a thousand. Ensuring the best possible quality of our products - whether in direct or indirect handling - is a constant incentive for us. If things don't go quite smoothly: We correct errors together, trustingly and in a solution-oriented manner.
As a market-leading family company, we think and act globally. Our regional embedding at our locations is also particularly important to us: as an employer, system provider of high-quality cutting solutions, partner, sponsor or simply as a good neighbor. We strive for a sustainable balance between environmental measures, economic development and social commitment. Our employees experience closeness through open and informal interactions with each other, flat hierarchies and short decision-making processes. Of course we also know how to celebrate together.
