We develop and produce a wide variety of pipes, accessories and system components for building construction, underground engineering, automotive and industry. The basis of today's product diversity is our key inventions - the flexible metal electrical installation pipe, its further development in plastic and the yellow drainage pipe.

In the course of time, a group of companies has developed with more than 5,000 employees at 19 production and sales locations worldwide. Despite all its internationality, FRÄNKISCHE is and remains firmly rooted in its headquarters in Königsberg, Bavaria.

Our decades of experience in working with plastics and metal and our technical know-how make us a reliable and competent partner for project-specific solutions. Through research, development and constant innovation, we continue to set standards, whereby the direct line to customers and business partners is an important building block for the new and further development of our products.
