KECKEX Origin Story

It all started with removing chewing gum from supermarket shop fronts.

10 years ago, Michael Keckeis was hired as a service provider to remove the unsightly build-up of chewing gum from shop fronts using a hot steam device. When he briefly ran the device over the lawn, he noticed the grass below died. This inspired him to design a device capable of destroying weeds without the use of chemicals, in a 100% natural way.

As an innovator and experimental thinker, he developed the prototype of a weed removal machine in his father-in-law’s garage back in 2015. This paved the way for what later became KECKEX GmbH, along with a number of other developments and patented solutions.

Today, the service company KECKEX Care GmbH and the metal company REX Metal Solutions GmbH are also part of the KECKEX Group, all of which came under the umbrella of MK Holding GmbH in 2021.

The quick rise of KECKEX did not go unnoticed. In 2021, we were awarded the Bronze Export Prize by the WKO, at the 2022 ECONOVIUS Austrian State Award for Innovation we were nominated as the top 5 from over 50 companies, and in 2023 we won the Vorarlberg State Award for Innovation.

Method

The system of KECKEX products relies exclusively on the properties of heated water, making our approach the most natural weed control method available. A mixture of hot steam and water heated up to 130° C ensures that the weeds are targeted both above ground and at the root system.

As our accessories  are completely sealed, the steam is enclosed, creating an atmosphere above 100 °C. This prevents the water from cooling down between leaving the nozzle and hitting the ground. The mixture of hot water and steam triggers a protein shock in the plant, which means the plant is no longer able to absorb water and subsequently dries up. Depending on the type of plant, the weed can no longer sprout and withers completely after only a few applications.
