An Engineer with an Idea

Our History

Karl Ernst Brinkmann started KEB in 1972 with the Combibox – a combination clutch/brake. It was innovative. It increased throughput and machine performance. It gave customers increased flexibility while reducing installation time and complexity. KEB's product range has since grown but we are still achieving these things for our customers.

Engineers at heart


We love to solve problems. Our approach is to thoroughly understand our customers and their challenges. If possible, we apply existing technology in the KEB toolkit. If not, KEB can engineer and create customized solutions targeted to the challenge.
