OUR SUCCESS STORY

Innovation by tradition

A well-known manufacturer of geared motors

We are proud to say that RUHRGETRIEBE engineers, produces and distributes gear motors, drive systems, planetary gearboxes and control units with more than 70 employees.

Decades of love for drive technology: Since 1953, we have been manufacturing worm gear units and worm gearmotors that are used in almost all industrial sectors. Due to our many years of experience and innovations, we are today one of the specialists in the field of drive technology. As a modern company, we have continuously expanded our product portfolio so that we can offer the optimum drive for almost every conceivable application and requirement.

We are your driving force.

With personal advice and real solution competence, in addition to an extensive delivery program with a wide range of drive variants, we also provide the right idea for individual customer requirements – economically and reliably. The durability of the products and the quality of the service are supported by the fact that many individual components of gear units and motors are always available in the warehouse. This strengthens customer loyalty and establishes our company’s good reputation in the long term.

No matter whether single or large scale orders, many RUHRGETRIEBE customers have been sourcing drive technology “Made in Mülheim an der Ruhr” for more than 65 years. As an owner-managed company, you can expect quality, competence and speed from us.
