SFC KOENIG: A History of Success & Continuous Expansion

The history of SFC KOENIG® originated in the foundation of a light construction engineering business back in 1927 by Dr. Max Koenig, Ph.D. in Engineering. With humble beginnings in custom-made sheet metal working, the company first evolved into the company name KVT-Koenig AG in 1985.

In 2014 that changed into the new company name and brand – SFC KOENIG – while remaining the leading global manufacturer of sealing and flow control technology.
