The headquarters are in Linz, Austria. KEBA AG is represented by subsidiaries around the world. There are still some companies that are part of the KEBA group.


KEBA subsidiaries

KEBA Group headquarters are located in Linz, Austria. The company has own branches in Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Turkey, Switzerland, Italy, the Czech Republic, the USA, China, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan.

KEBA Industrial Automation Germany GmbH

Since the end of 2018, the German KEBA Industrial Automation Germany GmbH (formerly LTI Motion GmbH) with headquarters in Lahnau has been part of the KEBA Group. KEBA Industrial Automation Germany GmbH is a specialist in the area of servo drive technology.

Since the merger, KEBA has been a total solution provider in the industrial automation sector. Customers receive their automation solutions from a single source - from operation, control and safety technology to drive technology, and all of this suitable for every industry.

DELEM (NL) - Industrial Automation

In early 2013 KEBA took over a majority position in the Dutch automation company DELEM with headquarters in Eindhoven. With this takeover in the industrial automation sector, KEBA expanded its industry segment in plastics, robotics/handling technology, and packaging with the sheet metal processing segment. DELEM is an independent company within the KEBA group. The DELEM management team handles operations management.

DRAG and BOT (DE) - Industrial Automation

Drag and bot GmbH has been part of the KEBA Group since December 2021. The Stuttgart-based company develops an innovative operating system for robots. KEBA is thus strengthening its position in the Industrial Automation business area and strategically supplementing its product portfolio with innovative, flexible automation software.

KEMAS GmbH (DE) - Handover Automation

Since 2016, the German KEMAS GmbH, located in Oberlungwitz near Chemnitz/Germany, has been part of the KEBA Group. KEMAS GmbH is closely linked operationally with KEBA's Handover Automation business division in order to make optimal use of synergies in technology as well as in the market.

CBPM-KEBA (CN) - Handover Automation

In the start of 2007 KEBA expanded its position in the Chinese banking market by establishing the joint venture CBPM-KEBA with headquarters in Peking. CBPM (China banknote printing and minting corporation) is a subsidiary of the Chinese central bank that has about 30,000 employees and is the largest banknote printing company in the world. By founding CBPM-KEBA, marketing structures were used and potential synergies opened up.

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.

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.
