The Knauf Group is able to look back at a long and exciting history. Over many decades, the Knauf Group has successfully completed the transition from a pure family-run company to a globally operating family of companies – while retaining its fundamental values, such as cooperation, togetherness, and partnership. It has always been this special combination of tradition and innovation that has made this company, which is still family-owned, what it is today: a highly successful global player that represents modernity, highest product quality and diversity, as well as loyalty and solidarity.
Knauf continued to expand its product portfolio in the following years as well. New products included construction chemicals products, lime- and cement-bonded plasters, insulation materials, mineral ceiling systems, and the Aquapanel cement board. Knauf also made moulded parts from expanded polystyrene (EPS) for packaging and injection moulded components for the automotive and consumer electronics industry, which were mainly produced in France.
