Thonauer was founded in 1988 by Friedrich Thonauer in Austria and is headquartered in Vienna. In addition to Austria, it is also represented in Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. The main focus of its activities is the sale of machines for wire processing, particularly for the automotive, electric systems and electronics industries. Another mainstay are machines for automatic jobs of foamed gaskets or automated electrical component potting. In addition to sales, the company's main tasks also include servicing and maintaining the machines that it sells.
Thonauer develops and produces its own machines at its location in Budakeszi (Hungary), including those for the wire processing of electric vehicles.
The Thonauer Group employs around 60 people and has been part of Komax since 2016. Prior to that, the two companies had been working together very successfully as partners for decades. Thonauer has been Komax's representative in seven countries in Central and Eastern Europe since the beginning.
