Prizes & Awards

The foundation stone of Keller & Kalmbach was laid in 1878. Without entrepreneurial courage, a long-term corporate strategy as well as the continuous drive to progress, the company would probably have remained the small trading house for screws and forging supplies of that time and probably disappeared from the market over time. Instead, today's family-owned company reinvented itself again and again and was thus also the first German screw trader to deliver to the series production of the automotive industry in 1962. "Innovations have always played a major role in our company and are, so to speak, our corporate engine," says Dr Florian Seidl, CEO of Keller & Kalmbach. It is therefore not surprising that new awards are regularly added to the family-owned company's "Wall of Awards". For example, Keller & Kalmbach has been declared "Supplier of the Year" several times by customers, its high level of environmental awareness has been honoured with an award, and most recently it was named one of the most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany by the TOP100 award.
