The structural change in the caravan industry at the beginning of the 80s, forced KNAUS to close down their main plants in Ochsenfurt and Marktbreit. Five former employees of Knaus got together and established FRANKANA. Permanently rising sales volumes have shown that specialist traders have found a competent and reliable partner in our company. Together with our sister company Freiko, we nowadays belong to the leading wholesalers in the Camping and Leisure industry.
Due to the increasing product range our warehouse space in Marktbreit was not sufficient. Hence, a new 10,000 sqm warehouse on about 40,000 sqm grounds was built next to Freiko GmbH in Gollhofen. Futhermore, a 3-floor administration building was built, in which the employees moved in in early 2014. Our workshop as well as the Caravan and Motorhome maintenance center remain in Marktbreit. We are prepared for the future!
What we do...
Initially, we concentrated on the area of Service and Spare parts for caravans. Due to the ever-increasing customer demand, we have been adding more and more accessories to our equipment. Today, our range covers more than 10.000 different products from camping guides to solar panels.
An IT-supported order processing system allows us to react quickly and flexibly. Furthermore, a good balance between the areas of warehouse, logistics and IT is of highest importance to us. It is in the interest of any specialist trader to purchase from a wholesaler who can deliver quickly. In this regard, the main focus lies not only on the transport but also on availability and a wide range of products.
Moreover, we support our retailers with regular trainings at our training facility in Gollhofen. In addition, we offer distance-learning courses. A team of trained and skilled staff gladly advises our traders on technical matters.
Let us briefly introduce to you our specialist trader exhibition – the only one of its kind and an integral component of our company’s philosophy. We present our newest products on over 1.100 m² on a circumferential gallery in 6 m height. There, you can examine our products on-the-spot.
