Headed by Gabriela König, K&M’s philosophy is to manufacture high quality, durable products in an environmentally friendly manner, so that musicians worldwide can concentrate on what’s essential: the music.

As one of the world’s leading providers of stands and accessories for instruments, speakers, microphones and more, König & Meyer is constantly challenged to develop innovative solutions to fulfil their customer’s needs and wishes. About 270 employees in Wertheim, Germany work together to fulfil this promise.

Precision Engineering
From research and development to the manufacturing line, precision is the ultimate key to quality. K&M produces their own tools and equipment to guarantee new products will have the quality they envision and constantly re-invest in specialized machinery to create precise and exceptional products. Their technologically advanced tube and flat laser cutting machines allows them to perfect even the smallest detail on their products.

Innovation

From the invention of the in-bell stand to the creation of the industry standard "21090" microphone stand to the development of the self-expanding mandrel to solve the wobble of stand-mounted speakers, K&M is driven by perfection and the desire to stay ahead of the curve. K&M continually creates new products based on state-of-the-art computer technology, short development times, and the very best quality. Customer feedback and industry needs are constantly in the forefront of their designing process.

Sustainability
K&M has been a genuinely eco-friendly company for decades and prides themselves on their eco-friendly manufacturing and sustainable management. Preventing waste, conserving water and reducing emissions whenever possible, environmental protection has been a fundamental focal point of theirs for decades (certified ISO 14001 since 2000) and they continue to review and develop strategies to minimize their impact on the environment. As one example. they have reduced water consumption by 94% since 1979—and even turn the waste water into drinking quality water at the end of the process!

And not only are the products the most long-lasting on the market… they also have a 10 years replacement parts program - which means they rarely end up as landfill!

A Strong Partnership

Along with optimal delivery capacity and exceptional quality products, K&M offers their customers additional services that go above and beyond. A 5 year warranty on all products and a 10 year replacement parts program make it easy for customers to choose in favor of K&M. They also offer extensive product information, videos and set up instructions on their website.
