Kiel Group

Kiel started laying the groundwork for its international expansion very early on. Kiel gradually broke into key markets, both through collaborations with seating manufacturers in Italy and Spain, and through the company’s own regional offices. The first subsidiary was established in Turkey back in 1996. In 1997, a branch opened in Poland and this was followed by one in the Netherlands in 2000, in the USA in 2009 and a joint venture in Russia in 2011. In 2017, a subsidiary was founded in Macedonia, while 2020 saw the opening of a subsidiary in North America and a joint venture in China. As a result, Kiel is currently represented in almost all European markets, as well as in North America, Australia, the Near East and Asia. It means that we can provide a varied range of products that meet both national requirements and individual customer requests, and that we can guarantee a real proximity to customers, as well as efficient coordination and short delivery routes and times. This all helps to guarantee our consistently high quality standards, which are typical of Kiel, and to do so across the world.
