History

Wilfried Schwengels founded the company KURO Plastics GmbH almost 25 years ago. As a success-driven individual who kept his finger on the pulse, he developed the small   hand-crafted manufacturing business into a successful and modern company, which today employs more than 60 employees.

 

The founder always remained true to himself– direct and genuine. He passed away too soon in June 2013.

The family business is today managed by Jan Schwengel, the second generation.
