About us

Knobel® by Trikno

In September 2022, the Swiss Trikno AG has taken over the Knobel Group. We re-started the production of the renowned Knobel machines, committed to reviving all of what makes Knobel® machines unique and the first choice for confectionary manufacturers: From small moulding machines to support artisan production to complete production lines for the largest chocolate manufacturers worldwide. 

Our extensive product portfolio includes innovative machines for decorating, nuts & fruit, one shot, free-pressing and sandwich applications, as well as our unique ColdPress® process. We also operate a unique Research, Development & Test laboratory and offer comprehensive retrofit solutions.

"The world associates Switzerland in particular with high-quality chocolate and fine confectionery. That is not enough for us. We have the ambition that - on an international level - Trikno AG becomes a synonym for the most efficient and innovative way of producing fine confectionery products. We want our technologies, our process engineering and our machines to become the global gold standard in the industry."

Every day, our mission defines every move of every Trikno employee: "Together, we make the most luxurios and creative dreams of the confectionery designers come true."
The Trikno global vision expresses our long term objective:
«Sweets – only with Trikno!»
