The Telegärtner Group
Where connectivity takes place, where data and signals are transmitted and connections are made, that's where we create solutions with almost 700 employees. Connectors are our core competence: With a production of several million units and 11 locations worldwide, we are always the first point of contact for our customers directly on site. As an owner-managed family company, we form the heart of the Telegärtner Group with Telegärtner Karl Gärtner GmbH in Steinenbronn as our corporate headquarters. And we have been doing so successfully for over 75 years.

The company is now one of the top addresses for coaxial connectors, network components, plastic injection mouldings, industrial electronics and cable assembly. But this remarkable development was only possible because the demands of the traditional company have not changed in all these years:"Telegärtner does not just want good quality.
