Reliable drainage

KESSEL drainage solutions ensure that wastewater can be disposed of cleanly and safely in over 60 countries. Together, we all have one goal: The vision of providing people and their environment with the best possible protection through technical innovations.

KESSEL's mission

The protection of our common livelihoods is one of the great challenges of our time. In order to overcome them, water must not only be transported where it is needed – it also needs to be drained away after use and kept away from where it can cause damage.

As a provider of drainage solutions, KESSEL has set itself precisely this task: Since 1963, KESSEL products have protected people and their environment by providing drainage from buildings, treating wastewater and preventing damage caused by backwater. In this way, we offer customers a certain degree of certainty beyond the changes of time.

What makes KESSEL the company it is

At the heart of our work are the four pillars of quality, innovation, safety and service. These are the principles that guide all of our corporate actions.



Innovative products, efficient, demand-driven manufacturing, production in Germany: That's why products from KESSEL meet the highest quality standards.


40 years ago, we established polymer as a building material in drainage systems. Today, products such as the Ecolift hybrid solution or the Ecoguss composite material testify to the innovative strength of KESSEL AG.


Our products reliably protect the values of our customers against damage. Not only today, but also in the long term, because they are particularly robust and spare parts are available for decades.


We never leave our customers and partners alone with our products. That's why we offer an all-round service, from planning, installation and commissioning to maintenance or repair.

The history of KESSEL

KESSEL can look back on an eventful history: from a village garage to a global technology company. In 1963 Bernhard Kessel founds a tool-making company in a garage in Großmehring near Ingolstadt – initially with three employees. In addition to tools and injection-moulded parts on behalf of other companies, KESSEL has been producing its first products for the drainage sector since 1969 and also moves into pump technology in 1981. KESSEL is the first manufacturer on the German market to receive approval for oil, fuel and coalescence separators made of polymer in 2003.

With numerous innovations such as an award-winning bathroom drain collection, the development of Ecoguss or the introduction of the Ecolift lifting system, KESSEL continues to write a success story. In 2017, KESSEL's export share is 25 percent and the trend is rising. This is made possible by our own sales teams located in Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Romania, Italy, France, China and the Netherlands.
