AKG Group was founded in 1919 in Hofgeismar, Germany and began as a repair shop for replacement heat exchangers in the automotive industry. Over the past 100 years, we have grown from a small production facility into a worldwide manufacturer still operating as a private, family-owned company.
AKG is a fourth generation, global family company, which specializes in the manufacturing and production of customer-focused, innovative high-performance heat exchangers, cooler modules and cooling systems.
What began as a specialized company for repairs and the production of replacement coolers in 1919, developed after 30 years to one of the leading manufacturers of coolers and heat exchangers in Europe, which produced the first series coolers in the automotive industry.
Over the years AKG has expanded to be active worldwide to support our global customers. AKG built new manufacturer facilities and sales companies in India, Turkey, Japan, China, Korea, Latvia and Brazil.
AKG is also established in America, which includes our sister plants AKG North operations in Mitchell, South Dakota and AKG of America with AKG Thermal Systems in Mebane, North Carolina.
