Its range of quality assurance modules, test systems and intelligent networking solutions complete the portfolio and ensure safe and efficient production.

Global but local

Komax is a globally active Swiss company with production facilities in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa. It provides local sales and service support in more than 60 countries through subsidiaries and independent representatives. This provides Komax with a unique global presence and allows it to efficiently and competently serve its local and global customers at all times, thus ensuring the availability and value of their investments after equipment commissioning through standardized service processes. Proximity to its customers as well as short reaction and delivery times play a decisive role in its success, which explains why Komax has been consistently applying the motto “global but local” for years.

Over 45 years of experience

Since 1975, Komax has grown from a 3-man business to a group with more than 40 companies and more than 2,000 employees. Back in 1980, the company's founder Max Koch initiated the expansion abroad with the founding of Komax USA, and has continued to pursue this expansion ever since. Komax has established itself as a market and technology leader in recent decades thanks to its continuous development of innovative, novel solutions for automated wire processing. As a result of several acquisitions in recent years, Komax has entered the market with six additional brands: Artos, Exmore, Kabatec, Laselec, Thonauer, and TSK.

Our values

Sustainability and social responsibility are core elements of Komax’s corporate strategy. They are incorporated not only into the Group’s long-term targets, but also into its operating activities. Komax is determined to develop its competencies in questions of sustainability and social responsibility on an ongoing basis – for the benefit of its stakeholders and the environment.

The way Komax is perceived by its customers, business partners, shareholders, and other stakeholders depends to a significant extent on the conduct of its employees. For this reason, Komax has a code of conduct that is binding for all employees of the Group and reviewed on a regular basis. The code of conduct defines general rules of behavior and guidelines on how to act towards the Group’s business partners and competitors. In addition, it addresses issues such as discrimination, safety, health, and environmental protection. All employees are given training on the code of conduct when they join the company.
