Being founded in 1919 as Autokühlergesellschaft Dortmund, AKG Thermotechnik in Dortmund thrived in times of a rapidly developing industrialization of the Ruhr area and was once the nucleus of the AKG Group. Coolers made of copper/brass and steel have been produced for customers and suppliers in the coal and steel sector for many decades. Repairing industrial and car radiators rounded off the business activities. Since the 1980s there has been a steady renewal of the plant and an alignment of the product range on coolers made of aluminum. Today, the modern plant and its 75 employees produce oil and water coolers made of aluminum as well as intercoolers for OEM customers. Dortmund is also the production and distribution center of the AKG standard cooler series for the European market.
AKG Thermotechnik GmbH & Co. KG Uslar was founded in 1989 and started production in the same year. Today, more than 50 employees produce mainly oil and water coolers made of aluminum and intercoolers for renowned customers such as Kaeser, Atlas Copco and Terex. The historical half-timbered town of Uslar is located on the southwestern edge of the low mountain range Solling in the Lower Saxony district of Northeim and is a state-recognized resort.
