KMR – The partner of craftsmen

KMR is one of Europe‘s most revered tools and is the respected brand of hand held and powered fastening tools for craftsmen.

For more than a century craftsmen, cabinet makers, joiners and roofers have relied on our products.

KMR offers nailers, staplers and screwdrivers and the corresponding fasteners for professional craftsmen in Europe and overseas.

A long tradition of excellence

KMR has a long history of developing high-end fastening tools for professional craftsmen. Our brand takes its name from the initials of our founder, Karl Matthias Reich. The son of a Black Forest craftsman, Karl began producing nails, wire goods and machines for wire processing in 1914.

In 1925, Karl produced his first stationary carpentry machine which was sold under the brand name HOLZHER. In the 1960s, his company then produced its first pneumatic stapler before expanding its range to include other hand held power fastening tools.

This hand held tool side of the business was acquired in 2013 by the Behrens Group, one of Europe‘s leading manufacturers of fastening technology for wood and other materials and became fully integrated into the Behrens‘ operation.
