About us

Rahe-Kraft was founded in 2001 by Peter Rahe und Jakob Kraft. Tobias Kirchner joined us in 2010; since then we are equal partners, directors, project managers and (most of all) dedicated to our clients. The three of us combined look back on over 50 years of experience in the acoustics business.
