The Konnex Group has its roots in a Dutch trading company founded in 1947 by Roelof Gunneman. In 1999 the company was renamed Konnex B.V. following the purchase of an importer of Italian chains, also established in 1947.
In 2001, the German company Konnex GmbH was founded in Mettmann, together with a German partner that imported goods from China. This partner retired later and the company moved to Velbert.
In 2004, the subsidiary KONNEX Ltd. was founded in China. This is where customer-specific products (cable management systems) are manufactured for Rittal. In 2013, Konnex Group further expanded with the acquisition of Ruthenbeck.
As an industrial supplier, we specialise in the development and production of complex products made of metal, plastic or a combination of these two.
