The Company with history since 1861

Solutions for the present – with a close eye on the future

Friedrich KÖSTER GmbH & Co. was established in 1861 under the name of Maschinenfabrik und Eisengießerei J. M. Voss. The company has been family-owned for seven generations, and as such accords direct credibility to values such as continuity, a sense of tradition, adaptability and innovative spirit. 

During the course of its history, KÖSTER has often been the first manufacturer on the market to supply technical solutions for varying situations, and has succeeded in adapting its product range to occasionally drastic changes on the market and selling its products worldwide.

Versatile products and a broad range of services

The product range of the traditional company is versatile and stands out from mass products through the highest craftsmanship and perfect engineering skills. The product range is manufactured in-house and includes pumps, winches and wave machines as well as cast iron and steel components, hydraulic steel structures and fittings.

The family-owned company also offers first-class service. The range of services extends from comprehensive consulting to delivery and assembly of the products to maintenance, overhaul and repair - also for third-party products.
