Kettler 127 Products
Recognising and setting trends. For more than 60 years, Kettler has shaped the sports and leisure market with cutting-edge product solutions. Some of them have made history: With the world's first aluminium bike, in 1977 Kettler revolutionised the bicycle world, the "Golf" home trainer became Europe's most popular fitness equipment in the 1980s, generations of children and youths grew up with the KETTCAR and the first weatherproof table tennis table to this day stands for trend-setting functionality. The visionary entrepreneurial spirit of the company's founder, Heinz Kettler, is being upheld today by his daughter. Together with the management team, Dr Karin Kettler is continuing this visionary course as owner and managing director of this traditional company. Out of the small company that was founded in 1949 in the Sauerland town of Ense-Parsit has emerged a corporate group operating worldwide. Through close cooperation with leading institutes and companies in the fields of design, health and technology, routine improvements and innovations are achieved with which leisure activities can be pursued more efficiently and in ways that meet individual needs. In 2009 and 2010, for example, the company was awarded the title "Most Innovative Brand" at the PLUS X AWARDS, Europe's largest competition for technology, sport and lifestyle.
