Since 1991, KEMAS GmbH has been one of the leading suppliers in the field of customer- and employee-operated handover automation based on RFID technology. The company is located in Oberlungwitz at the MotoGP circuit Sachsenring.
The core competence of KEMAS is process-oriented self-service solutions for the transfer of company assets (e.g. keys, mail, work equipment, tools, textiles, weapons, etc.). The transfer solutions enable the collection, administration, safekeeping, disposition and transfer of objects with simultaneous access control.
Our portfolio is constantly expanding with innovative solutions in future-oriented business fields. We know that many physical objects will be digitised in the near future. Keys will be exchanged for QR codes, mobile phones will replace ID cards, cash or tickets. Whether analogue or digital - both require processes that need to be revolutionised.
Capture and bundle material corporate assets, make access to the resulting pool of resources available to different users, and design the handover process in a secure and unambiguous way.
KEMAS is certified according to ISO 9001:2015 and still develops and manufactures software and hardware from a single source at the company's site in Oberlungwitz (Saxony). The company has a strong national and international network of partners. Björn Grämer and Volker Rattmann lead the medium-sized company at the Sachsenring, which has over 90 employees.
Party, shake hands or chat together at the buffet - in times of Corona we unfortunately have to do without that. We won't be seeing each other for a while yet, or only via video conferences.
But we won't miss the opportunity to celebrate this anniversary with you and our staff. And that is also possible without personal contact. Let us surprise you!
Bring the celebratory mood into the office easily with the best songs from 30 years of KEMAS. Our staff have made a great selection. For some songs, you'll recognise the connection by the name or in the lyrics. With some songs, we take ourselves for a ride a bit and still others are simply favourite songs and belong at every decent party.
We would like to give our customers and you as interested parties even more interesting insights into the KEMAS world. That is why we will soon be publishing an annual customer magazine. In it you will find exciting stories about our employees, successful projects and satisfied customers.

We are constantly developing new ideas to set trends or fulfil customer wishes. Some of them are for the wastepaper bin - but some go down in KEMAS history as outstanding inventions.
We have been able to apply for patents and utility models for many of these innovations. They provide the foundation for our continued successful development.
Hans-Jürgen Grämer founded the company KEMAS in 1991. Nevertheless, it all started at Grämer's previous company, Robotron, in what was then Karl-Marx-Stadt (now Chemnitz), with an inefficient process - manual, paper-based key issue and return. In the mornings there were long queues, in the evenings enormous piles of keys accumulated, which had to be sorted onto the classic "nail board" in a tedious and error-prone manner. "You can do better than that!" he summed up, and the first prototype of an automatic key management system was born.
On 31 May 2016, KEMAS GmbH became part of the KEBA group of companies.
The Austrian company with headquarters in Linz took over the majority of KEMAS GmbH. The brand and thus also the name KEMAS remain and operate under the umbrella of KEBA AG. The operational management of KEMAS remains with the established management team in Oberlungwitz.
The focus is on working in a partnership basing on trust and respect. The competencies of both companies are to be expanded and synergies should be used in order to be able to offer a more comprehensive solution portfolio for existing and future customers.
Over the years, the company has developed into a provider of automated, process-oriented transfer solutions. Whether keys, vehicles, work equipment, documents, electronic equipment, textiles, identification media, weapons, etc. - all resources need to be used efficiently in the daily core business.
Customer requirements have become more complex over the years and are the driving force behind new innovations from KEMAS GmbH.
