Who we are, what we do, what we stand for.
THONAUER GmbH is a specialized provider of complete production facility solutions, in particular for the automotive, electric systems and electronics industries. The company’s emphasis is on the processing of electrical wires. THONAUER GmbH was founded by engineer Friedrich Thonauer in 1988. Shortly thereafter, he became general agent for KOMAX laying the groundwork for close business and personal relationships between the two companies that continue to this day.
THONAUER started from the very onset to cultivate the Eastern European markets, which were still difficult to develop at that time. From its corporate headquarters in Vienna, THONAUER covers the markets of Eastern Europe, maintaining offices and service bases in Brno (CZ), Budakeszi (HU), Bratislava (SK), Zvolen (SK), Bucharest (RO), Timosoara (RO) and Cluj (RO). These offices serve as the base for its 60 employees to provide support and advice to local and international production companies when setting-up or optimizing their production processes. This international reach is a tremendous benefit to customers who often have international operations themselves.
Over the years, more industrial representations have been built up step by step, so today THONAUER is showcased as a provider of complete solutions for everything having to do with cables. In addition, THAUNER recognized early the need for mixing and metering technology, which developed into the second pillar of the group. Offerings in the area of EMC shielding round out the range of products. To meet the needs of customers in the area of special solutions, a separate department for special purpose machinery was founded at the Budakeszi site not far from Budapest. With great success, this location develops and produces automation solutions for our customers.
Customer-focused service – including installation of new facilities and systems as well as training for operators – is a THONAUER tradition. The company stands for know-how, speed and reliability.
THONAUER is the ideal addition to KOMAX Wire’s global service and sales network thanks to its strong presence in Central and Eastern Europe. THONAUER provides KOMAX a stepping stone to the East from its location in Vienna. The THONAUER Group has been a subsidiary of Komax Holding AG since 2016.
THONAUER stands for:
- State-of-the-art technology combined with good value for money
- A wide range of high-quality products
- Flexible, customer-oriented service
- Setup and installation of production equipment and training of operating personnel.
