About the ktc Group of Companies

The ktc group of companies originated in 1996. The entrepreneur and current managing director and owner Wolfgang Schiek starts in Straubenhardt-Conweiler. Mr. Schiek takes over the company with 6 employees of Mr. Krausse and thus also the name ktc, which still lasts to this day. Even then, complex products were manufactured on CNC machines for well-known customers. Thanks to the steady growth and commitment of its employees, ktc GmbH moved to its current headquarters in Daimlerstraße in Straubenhardt. This involved new fields of activity in gas technology. Today, the site employs about 45 people.

With the acquisition of Kelch Handling Technology, today’s ktc handling technology, Mr. Schiek succeeds in acquiring an innovation-driven company. More than four decades of experience are the basis of our expertise. Since 1973, several thousand magazines and handling equipment have been manufactured for more than 150 machine manufacturers. Depending on the customer’s wishes, the planning, project planning, construction, production, assembly, commissioning and service of workpiece and tool change systems are taken over.

The acquisition of Staudenmaier Konstruktionen GmbH expands its competence and capacity in construction at the Schorndorf site. The Group now employs around 100 people and operates internationally.


Since its inception in 1996, all companies in the group have been owner-managed. Since then, the Schiek family has been equally committed to all companies and has shown for more than 20 years that they are a stable and reliable partner for their customers from all over the world. Since 2018, the son of the cause has been active in the management of ktc GmbH and thus ensures the succession of the group of companies.

Innovative and down-to-earth

In an ever-changing world, it is important to break new ground while remaining true to your values. Today, ktc GmbH repeatedly manages to develop innovative concepts in the handling of machine tools and is constantly on the lookout for new challenges. With our focus on our customers, we also constantly take care of the well-being of our employees and their professional development.

Customer orientation

Our innovations are mostly based on the requirements of customers for whom there is no solution yet. Through decades of experience and close communication, new developments are constantly being placed on the market. Due to a close partner network, which is mostly located regionally in the Baden-Württemberg area, it is often possible to react quickly. This applies to new developments, series orders, spare parts or general service. Our goal is to offer the customer a partner on whom he can rely and who fully meets his requirements.
