The company has been established in 1932 by the brothers Hans and Josef Kronenberg in Cologne-Nippes. With the limit switch HJK1 the first contacts were produced in part time production there. Since 1958 we have been exporting our products abroad, starting with France and the Netherlands – further countries followed very soon.
KRONENBERG has developed into an international company with more than 20 distributors worldwide.



Our company decisions are long-term orientated. Due to their reliabilty and durability our products stand for safety, long-term customer satisfaction and lasting supplier-customer relationships.
