100 years focus on innovation

October 1st is the hundredth anniversary of the foundation of Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik GmbH & Co.KG from Wiehl /Mühlen. The year 2020 should be a special year for KAMPF. “We would have liked to celebrate our 100th anniversary adequately over two days with all employees, business partners and other guests from politics and associations. Unfortunately, the events around Corona put a damper on our plans. We had to cancel the celebrations”, says Lutz Busch, CEO of the company. Due to the still uncertain situation, there will unfortunately be no further planning. Nevertheless, the company is happy, because overall it has come through the past months surprisingly well. The measures introduced early on protected the employees. Online meetings and digital solutions replaced partially travel activities and service assignments. Customers remained loyal to the machine manufacturer in these turbulent times, so that the order situation can be rated positively. “We are grateful for the trust of our worldwide customers and for the fact that our employees have gone through the Corona year unscathed so far,” adds Lutz Busch. “For 100 years KAMPF has stood for innovative slitting and winding technology. ‘Made by KAMPF’ means reliability, quality and productivity. We are proud of this.”

KAMPF is the world market leader for slitting and winding machines for a wide range of web materials. On its way to becoming a solution provider, the company aims to further optimize the efficiency of its customers’ production through the interaction of networked machines, automation, digitalization and comprehensive service lines.

Last but not least, the energy and technical fascination of the people who work and have worked here have made up the success of the KAMPF company, which has now lasted for a century.
