Originally established in 1976 by Dieter Knopff in Helmstedt under the name Ökonomik Hydraulik and run from the family home’s basement, the consistent growth of the company necessitated the renting of a production hall as soon as 1984, to keep up with demand. Three years later the company was reunited under one roof within Helmstedt. In 1992 the premises were acquired by Axel Knopff, the son of Dieter Knopff and still acting managing director, who founded the AK Regeltechnik Ltd. Thanks to its excellent reputation and the consistently high quality of the products, the steady growth of the company continued unabatedly and prompted another move of the assembly and the warehouse to Twieflingen in 1999, for want of bigger capacities. As having the company operate at two different sites did not promise any long-term advantages, in 2006 AK Regeltechnik purchased its current facilities in Helmstedt, including 2,000 m2 of hall space.
