  Created in 1828 by Joseph Kuhn as a modest village forge, KUHN was an early specialist in the production of scales and weighing apparatus. A major change took place in 1864 when, taking full advantage of the opening of the new Paris-Strasbourg railway line and the exceptional period of prosperity in France at that time, Joseph Kuhn moved to Saverne to start a factory for producing agricultural machinery.

In the early 20th century, several tens of machines were produced every week at the Saverne workshops which also had their own forge.


Becoming German in 1871, then French again in 1918, KUHN was a regional company working essentially for Alsatian agriculture.

After a decade of growth, the Second World War brought development to a sudden halt.
