Kirstein Technische Systeme

Kirstein GmbH Technische Systeme was founded by Dipl. Ing. Gerhard Kirstein in 1992: during the first years, we focussed on design and production of electronic controllers and manufacture of special harnesses. In 1998, our company moved from Neusäß to Augsburg - investing on a site area of approx. 6.600 square metres in our own building with 1.700 square metres floor space. Only two years later, on our own site, an additional building (KTS Building II) was set up with 1.200 square metres floor space in order to keep up with increasing demands of our long-term and new customers. In consequence, a new basis was created with regard to further fields of activity.
The company´s philosophy developed to the effect that the system components we had since designed and produced, resulted in the design and production of complex mechatronic systems. For this purpose, investments were made in machines and testing devices.
The management decided to rearrange the company´s structure and founded the KTS Metall GmbH in 2002, which from thereon, took over the job of mechanical production. Moreover, the structure of the sales department changed gradually. In 2009, the result was the foundation of KTS Vertriebs GmbH. In 2015 the KTS Patentmangement und Vorentwicklung GmbH was founded in order to administrate the company's various national and international patents.
