KONI is a market leader in suspension technology. KONI have provided customers with shock absorbers for 90 years, ensuring a comfortable, safe and sustainable driving experience in any vehicle, across any terrain.
KONI was founded in Oud-Beijerland, the Netherlands, by A. de Koning. Initially making leather equipment for horses, KONI did not make shock absorbers until the early 1930s when they started work on friction type shock absorbers. In 1945 KONI produced the first adjustable telescopic shock absorbers for cars and trucks, a product style which is synonymous with KONI.
Known for a proud and successful history in motor sports, KONI has worked with leading teams across rally and racing, including winning Grand Prix World Championships, to solve suspension problems and develop new innovative technologies.
KONI has developed from a skilled small local company into a multi-national leading shock absorber specialist, well known across the world.
