We are closing the gap between standard products and customer requirements.
KURO Kunststoffe was founded on an innovation that enabled us to deform PVC tubes particularly efficiently. This enabled the production of bends for pneumatic tube systems that were optimally matched to their use - at the best possible price-performance ratio.
This has turned into a second-generation family business that bridges the gap between standard economic products and individual customer wishes. With tube systems on the one hand and customized tubes assembled and refined according to customer requirements on the other hand, KURO delivers exactly the solution that meets their challenge. In addition to a lean structure, an agile organization, and highly qualified employees, what we bring with us is above all a decent dose of enthusiasm.
We think: the most innovative solutions are yet to be invented.
Yes, we can! Yes, we have! Yes, we will do!
Benefits that distinguish us:
Our aim is to make business as easy as possible for our customers. Accordingly, KURO is well staffed by skilled staff members and does everything possible to inspire customers. For example, by points like this:
Particularly high availability of our products
Flexible and short-term deliveries of all kinds - national or worldwide
Flexible production through own mixing plant and extrusion lines
Innovation partners and developers of new process techniques
Offering Special Solutions besides all standards
Personal and solution-oriented communication - close to your needs
Well-staffed by skilled staff to do a good job.
Our approach to the production of tubes and pipe systems is an unusual wide set-up that allows standard products to be delivered in large quantities or individual innovations and developed up to mass production. This is possible because every step of value creation happens under our roof.
Raw material storage
Raw material preparation (mixing)
Production of molded pulps
Environment & Energy
A good tube system must not cost the earth.
We are climate neutral. As an innovative medium-sized company, we are already thinking tomorrow and are constantly trying to minimize our ecological footprint. For example:
We continuously reduce our CO2 emissions

We generate electricity from our own photovoltaic system and supplement it with the purchase of 100% green electricity
We compensate unavoidable CO2 emissions by participating in global climate protection projects according to the CDM Gold Standard
We rely on sustainable supplier management

Edewechter Wish Tree
Heart wishes for Christmas. An exciting time for all children, looking forward to the festival. For many families, however, it is not always financially feasible. Our municipality Edewecht and the association “Lachende Kinder e.V.“ assists here. With the wish tree campaign, needy families can hang wishes on the tree in the town hall. Godparents can then take one or more of these wishes. We have been the proud godfather of the action for years.
Cooperation with “Artec Ammerland
Artec is a community of social workshops where young people and adults’ people in need of specific support do work. Artec has been accompanying us for years as a reliable service provider in a variety of ways.
