What began more than 300 years ago as a blade forge in Weiz is today a globally active group of companies with 29 companies in 17 countries of the world. Wherever it is being invested into energy, communication or mobility infrastructure, products and systems of Knill Gruppe can be found.
In the area of energy infrastructure these are systems with focus on energy transmission and distribution. These include for instance fittings and damping systems for high-voltage overhead transmission, components for substations and switchgear lines, monitoring systems and digital services for the transmission line management or cable distribution cabinets.
Production systems and process technologies for the battery, cable & wire as well as the fiber optics industry develop, manufacture and assemble the companies in the technology area. On these systems the customers produce amongst others starter batteries, energy cables or fiber optic cables for the modern broadband internet.
