  • About KS Kolbenschmidt Czech Republic

    The history of the company dates back further than the 1920s. In the 1930s, the company was one of the main producers of pistons for the Škoda and Tatra manufacturing plants.

    As the company became part of the Rheinmetall Group in 1992, this merger led to a sharp rise in production and the introduction of the quality certification ISO 16949, followed by the environment management certification ISO 14001 in tandem with a process of continuous restructuring and the acquisition of several important customers.

    The next future milestone is the planned serial production of steel pistons, projected to begin in 2018.
