KOMSA Gründung 1992


Swedish-born Gunnar Grosse († 2023) founded KOMSA in 1992 together with Jürgen Unger and two other companions.

The declared goal: to bring mobile telecommunications to Germany. The start was marked by the difficulties caused by the dilapidated infrastructure of the former GDR. Not an obstacle for the young KOMSA team, but an incentive.

The pioneering spirit of the early days is still reflected in the way the KOMSA team works today: tackling things, sticking together, forging ahead and thinking ahead.
