    All of our thinking is focused on the world of tomorrow. The design for success at KEBA is based on the company's great innovative strength and the high quality standards for the products and services.
    Numerous awards are a clear signal for the company's innovative strength on many levels and the appreciation for our employees' commitment.

    Integrated value creation

    Production hall for electronics series production at KEBA

    The standardized value creation process at KEBA starts with consulting for hardware and software and ranges from system design and architecture to a maximum depth of development. This consistency is continued in the production that does more than comply with the highest quality demands. It also ensures the greatest possible flexibility and not least for higher cost efficiency.
    The intensive cooperation of departments from the very start is another success factor in our value creation chain. In this way, we connect the experiences and expertise of other industries, find analogies, and use them in our development partnerships.

    Development

    Modern software engineering combined with the latest software technology with advanced development principles can turn the most complex of tasks into high-performing, robust, and maintainable system solutions with long service lives.

    Security, reliability, and system availability have the highest priority in the development of our products – always coordinated to the specific requirements and norms of our international customers.

    Our quality monitoring is in place from the first draft to the finished product.

    Production
