Krones' corporate evolution is closely connected to the socioeconomic conditions prevalent in Germany following World War II. Hermann Kronseder, the father of the present-day chairman of the supervisory board, used his own designs to manufacture semi-automatic labellers starting with 1951. In the further development as from the 1960s, the firm's range of machinery was extended to include packers and filling systems. In 1980, the company was converted into a stock corporation as Krones AG.

With acquisitions of other companies the present-day range of machines for the beverage industry was reached:

1983: Anton Steinecker Maschinenfabrik , Freising, Germany
