Sales Manager Central East Europe & Asia/Pacific


Compact drives with high energy efficiency: This is en essential trend of general drive technology in mechanical engineering. More and more frequently electric drives are speed-controlled with competition among the individual drive technologies (electromechanical, hydraulical, pneumatic) encouraging the suppliers‘ innovative strength. The result of digitization is that the drives are more and more often integrated in superordinate communications networks.

Good design is timeless. Our components are classic but at the same time modern and help our customers implement long-lasting machines.
