IKA Works had its beginnings in Cologne's historic district. That's where businessman Curt Janke and pharmacist Max Kunkel founded the "Handelsgesellschaft pharmazeutischer Bedarfsartikel Janke & Kunkel OHG" on January 1st, 1910. Labs, pharmacies, and hospitals were their principal customers.
Rene Stiegelmann Jr., who had joined the management board of Janke & Kunkel GmbH & Co. KG, IKA engineering in 1980, took over corporate management in 1991. He had the product lines reworked, turned the attention to the newest technology, and -new to the industry- design. Since then, IKA's elegant blue machines pleasantly catch one's eye in almost every lab in the world.
Export has always played a significant role for IKA, so the company also established factories abroad, the first one in 1985 in Cincinnati (Ohio), U.S.A. Today "IKA-Works, Inc." headquarters are in Wilmington (North Carolina). "IKA-Works Asia" was established in Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur in 1995. The third foreign production facility opened in 1999 in Guangzhou, China. At the same time the sales office IKA Japan was founded in Japan. And finally, IKA India, originally founded as a sales office in 2001, began its own production in 2008.
Research and development continues to be conducted in the head office in Staufen. That's also where the stirring, mixing, and kneading machines for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries are produced. IKA in Staufen is currently investing significantly in new developments and customer support.+ Read More
