Once upon a time, in the early 1960’s, a German engineer in his early twenties became very courageous and went from a small village called “Niederdreisbach” in the mining region of the Westerwald to, formally known as Persia, today Iran, to work for a Swedish company.
While Karl Heinz Krah was getting settled in Iran and was busy with his challenges in a foreign country, far away from home, his wife and his first son also moved to Iran to live there together. After several years of commitment in the Middle Eastern country, family Krah decided to come back to their home village in Westerwald, bringing a lot of engineering experiences and cultural influences with them.
Upon his return in 1968, Karl-Heinz founded his own engineering company with a small workshop, situated in a former old mill in Niederdreisbach – in the house where he was born, as one of five children. With simple engineering and development services for the local metal and machinery industry he started.
