A company that can trace their history back to 1857, KONI began making simple horse harnesses and carriage upholstery in the village of Oud Beijerland, in the Netherlands. With the advent of the motor vehicle, they made an immediate switch to manufacturing radiator and spring covers in 1918, and soon after converted again in 1932 to create the first friction shock absorber. It was not until 1940, with the casting of their first manifold cover, that the name "KONI" was imprinted on a part, and they have not stopped ever since. It was in 1945 that KONI began to make their mark on the shock absorption industry with the advent of their telescoping shock absorbers. These effective shocks for classic cars added impressive performance to otherwise rough suspensions.
With their increased popularity and strength in the shock absorbing industry, KONI has expanded to own subsidiaries in France, Germany and the United States, growing their grasp on the global shock absorbing market, in addition to their already tight niche in the Mustang community. In 1972, KONI was acquired by ITT Corporation located in New York, and has continued to grow since being absorbed by the established corporate giant.
