HISTORY

Pots to planes, to soaring success

Founded in 1890, in Frankfurt a.M. (Germany) and refounded after World War II in 1946 in Kriftel (Germany), KOKINETICS (then Kochendörfer and Kiep O.H.G) started as a company producing cooking pots. An early pioneer of fineblanking technology the company evolved its business out of the kitchen and into the aeronautical and automotive industries.

Providing revolutionary technology, Kochendörfer and Kiep products were used in, then state-of-the-art, projects which included the renowned “Starfighter“ and “Tornado“ combat jets as well Airbus passenger planes.

Having undergone a shift in its approach, production technology and business focus, today the company prides itself on its close ties and relations with some of the world’s best known Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s) including leading car and aeroplane manufacturers.
