The history of the KITO® brand in Germany:
The name KITO® was first used around 1923 by the traditional Braunschweig-based company Wilke Werke for its protection systems. Right from its early days, the company established a name for itself through innovation and its inventive spirit, for example in 1928 through development of the world’s first deflagration flame arrester. This passion for innovative solutions was passed on to subsequent generations. By then, we had already demonstrated our many years of experience as a specialist in the field of explosion prevention & protection right around the world.
Since then, working on a joint basis with our customers, we have consistently developed and improved our products to achieve the optimum in terms of safety and explosion prevention & protection.
Today, with about 70 employees, KITO® manufactures flame arresters, valves and special devices for a diverse array of customer requirements. Just like top-ranking athletes, we are never satisfied with average performance levels. Our aim is to produce innovative and efficient solutions for explosion prevention & protection, with a consistent focus on quality, protection and safety.
Despite the fact that our company fields a wide variety of products, we like to keep things simple, precise and quick. With our worldwide network of sales partners we can provide you with professional advice locally to identify the right solution for your requirements.
