About us

"Our long experience allows us to build economically, ecologically and in accordance to the material used." In order to identify a customized membrane solution for each individual project - from the right material over the production and cutting to the complete installation, we strive to understand: The project, the builders, the architects.

For over 50 years, the Koch family has played an important role in establishing membranes as the fifth building material. The cooperation with Frei Otto and his team of experts wanting to break new grounds brought Klaus-Michael Koch to start working on his vision in Rimsting, Bavaria. In the following years he reshaped the family business into an international enterprise named Koch Hightex GmbH. 

At Hightex and also during the time of the predecessor enterprises of Klaus-Michael Koch, exchange, discussion and the common development together with our clients, architects and engineers are the ground pillars for a successful project. The specialists connected to Hightex or to the former membrane enterpises of Klaus-Michael Koch were involved in building lightweight constructions on all five continents and thus created milestones for building with membranes.
