Company Description

In 1949 Konrad Zuse founded the Zuse KG with five employees in a small village of about 800 inhabitants called Neukirchen. (Note that "KG" means a special type of company in the form of a limited partnership. From 1949 to 1947 the partners were: Alfred Eckardt, Harro Stucken, and Konrad Zuse. From 1957 the partners were Konrad Zuse and his wife, and from 1964 onwards the Zuse KG had a number of owners as described later in this section.) The Zuse KG was the first computer company in Germany. The building used by the Zuse KG in Neukirchen was formerly a post relay station.
