New OKW customer magazine

In the new issue of the INSIDE customer magazine we deal with the topic of "high quality, modern aluminium enclosures". The OKW aluminium enclosure programme protects your electronics reliably. The enclosures offer an optimum combination of function and design. They score points with exceptional stability and heat dissipation, as well as a high-quality appearance thanks to a matt anodised finish in conjunction with attractive plastic parts.

Summer holiday

Always at your service!

Please note: We are always at your service, even during the summer holiday period.
Because of maintenance work, however, our production department will be closed from 06-10.08.2018.
We would therefore ask you to plan your requirements in good time.

We wish all our customers and business partners pleasant and relaxing holidays.

Operating results improved once more

"2017/2018 was a successful financial year for OKW. We achieved all of our financial and accounting targets and sales rose once more by 6% to 15.7 million EUR. This means that through all of our changes in the past we have created an optimum basis for a successful future. This is expressed not only in the current figures, the forecasts are also very promising.

A wide range of improvements, mainly in national and international sales, were accomplished in the past year – OKW Gehäusesysteme is now working much more closely and on a more structured basis together with our customers, their needs and wishes. In addition, we also introduced the innovative wall-mounted/table top enclosure SMART-TERMINAL, which ideally supplements the portfolio of large-volume OKW aluminium enclosures. A further foundation for optimum future orientation was laid only recently, namely the beginning of construction of the new OKW office building. The relocation of the administrative areas is expected to take place in mid-2019, and will also keep the responsible OKW team very busy in the new 2018/2019 financial year. Other highlights will be a new series of wall-mounted enclosures, the international representatives meeting, exhibiting at the electronica trade fair in Munich and at the Compamed in Düsseldorf, as well as at the embedded world in Nuremberg in March.

To conclude, it should be mentioned that the good business figures, the healthy balance sheet and the encouraging trends in our core business fields of standard enclosures and tuning knobs could not and cannot be taken for granted. They are the result of hard work on the part of our employees in an interesting environment. I should like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone, including you as our loyal customers and business partners."

Yours, Martin Knörzer, Managing Director OKW Gehäusesysteme

Designed in Bavaria

As a design location, Germany stands for outstanding successes at international level, and design from Bavaria is an important economic factor and driver of innovation. The strategic approach in industrial design promotes the ability of companies to deal with new challenges using flexible, made-to-measure processes.

Within the framework of the Munich Creative Business Week 2018, examples of these factors were presented in the exhibition "DEsigned in Bavaria". From 3 to 10 March 2018, seven Bavarian VDID designers demonstrated their competencies in the showroom of USM Möbelsysteme, Munich. The creations of polyform Industriedesign were also part of this exhibition. The company polyform, in the person of Mr Martin Nussberger, has been responsible for the design of the enclosures and tuning knobs of OKW Gehäusesysteme for more than 25 years now. It thus seems reasonable that a standard enclosure from our company should also be involved – the large-volume CARRYTEC enclosure. The enclosure series features a functional handle and can be used for mobile applications or attached to tripod/support arm systems, in this case rotated by 180° degrees. The handle allows fast positioning and alignment of the visible and operating panels.
