Our name comes from the Navy's very first submarine Kobben - which was in service from 1909 to 1919. With its daring and future-oriented technology, a submarine marked the difference between old and modern times. In today's "Kobben", we connect the fearless attitude of Hans Fleischer Dons and his bold colleagues with an innovative environment that challenges the established.
