KnaufCompany profile

Knauf is a synonym for gypsum – among construction experts and enthusiasts. This proverbial association of a building material with a manufacturer’s name is not just coincidence. It is the result of decades of hard work and consistently high quality.The fact is, if you say Knauf, you mean dependability. Our group of companies had comparably humble beginnings. Specifically the family company was established in 1932, when brothers Alfons and Karl Knauf secured the mining rights to gypsum deposits in the Schengen community (Obermosel) in Germany. Courage, determination, and business savvy were the reasons that only a year later Knauf established its first gypsum factory in Perl (Moselle) – laying the foundation for what would later be the Knauf Group.

Product quality and product diversity

Today Knauf is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of modern insulation materials, drylining systems, plasters and accessories, thermal insulation composite systems, paints, floor screed, floor systems, and construction equipment and tools. With 150 production facilities and sales organisations in over 60 countries, 26,000 employees worldwide, and sales of 6.27 billion Euro (in 2013), the Knauf Group is without doubt one of the big players on the market – in Europe, the USA, South America, Russia, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
