KAWA GmbH exists since 1989. What started back then in the sitting room of Mr. Tadeusz Kawa, the founder of the company, as a small trading business with some materials for the production of PCB, in the course of three decades developed into an internationally renowned trading company doing business world-wide with used equipment and materials for the production of PCB and with PCB themselves.

For many years the trade with PCB was an integral and major part of the company. Due to the market developments in the course of time this aspect of the company faded out more and more and nowadays makes up just a very small part of business activities.
Today the trade with used PCB equipment is the company´s core business.

Situated in the small historical town of Aldersbach near Vilshofen and Passau in Lower Bavaria, Southern Germany, KAWA GmbH has become a permanently reliable partner for all of the PCB producing industry. Especially in Poland KAWA GmbH is well known and appreciated. Over the years very close ties have been established with a company based in Elblag called Printed Circuit Board Technology Spolka z o.o. (short: PCB). PCB, which Mr. Bartosz Kawa is a co-owner as well.
Printed Circuit Board Technology, even though utterly independent, in some areas functions like a branch office of KAWA GmbH. From there the Polish and the Eastern European markets are primarily being supplied, serviced, watched and analysed.
In Poland KAWA GmbH is the sole distributor of the following companies: Lackwerke Peters GmbH + Co KG, P.S.E. Werkzeuge & Maschinen GmbH, Ernst Lenz Maschinenbau GmbH, ahk service & solutions GmbH and POLA e MASSA Srl.
Additionally PCB Technology is the sole distributor of the Japanese company ALMIT, which provides products for the assembly industry. PCB also trades in used PCB machines.
In closed co-operation with these companies and other machine manufacturers  technical service is being supplied to all our customers whenever the need arises. KAWA GmbH maintains two warehouses for used equipment for the production of PCB in Aldersbach. You are welcome to take a personal look at the equipment of your choice.
