The company

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. Our factory in China produces quick, efficient and according to European quality standards. Throughout the production chain, products are subject to strict quality control by the European sites.



In the field of communication, we strive for open and honest dealings and respectful and honest cooperation at all levels. In addition, we use our experience and expertise to expand into new markets.
Our motto is: What we don’t offer yet, we develop for you.


Our guiding principle is long-term market orientation. Our thinking drives us to achieve new goals.
