Our history at a glance




The cornerstone of the original blacksmith shop and current KORDEL® location in Dülmen-Rödder, Germany.


With increased mechanization in agriculture in the 1950s, the focus of the blacksmith and wagon builder shifts.


The company takes a giant leap towards gearbox manufacturing. At this time, the company produces sprocket wheels and gains further insight into gearbox fabrication. The development of the first complete gear system and in-house designed gearwheel soon follow.


In the 1980s, the company’s gear-system range is complemented by the production of steering bearings, DC, and AC motors. The location in Dülmen-Rödder continues to grow.


KORDEL® opens a second production facility in Jawor, Poland.


In the late 90s, Johannes and Christoph Kordel take over the reins of the company.


Like the main plant in Dülmen-Rödder, the factory in Jawor, Poland also continues to grow.


In addition to the head office in Dülmen-Rödder, further manufacturing space is added in nearby Dernekamp.


Construction of a fully automated high-bay warehouse and additional assembly plant.


Expansion of the production plant in Jawor, Poland.


The shares of the Kordel Group are transferred in full to foundations. The company's guiding principles - stability, consistency, and reliability are further emphasized through its shareholder structure.


Capacity is further enhanced through an additional production facility in Bialogard, Poland.


Site expansion (Start of construction work in Olfen (Germany))

With experienced employees, we are able to reach our goals.
