Knecht: High Quality Filters Owned by MAHLE GmbH


Brand Knecht was founded by Adolf Knecht in the late XIX century. First filters were produced in 1929. In 1977, the brand was acquired by MAHLE GmbH, and in 1992 in Spain was founded Knecht Filterwerke SL. After that company's leaders decided to set up two joint ventures with companies in Mexico and India. Nowadays the brand still manufactures filters and is owned by MAHLE GmbH. Knecht products are characterized by the highest quality and are environmentally safe. Filters are made on enterprises, geographically located not only in Europe but also in Thailand, the U.S., Korea, Japan, Brazil and Philippines.
