From the very beginning.


The company was founded in 1918 by the ingenious designer and inventor Robert Breuning, and has traded under the name KOMET® since 1924. The company has been based in Besigheim since 1948. With the takeovers of Dihart® AG in 1996 and Jel® GmbH in 1999, the KOMET GROUP rounded off its product portfolio in the field of bore machining.
