AUMA Drives - A success story


In the course of 120 years, AUMA Drives experienced several generations of employees and many changes. Security and technical standards rose, assembley areas were enlarged and workflows were optimized. But the attention to detail is just as passionate as on the very first day.

Gear units, motors and engineering – the product and services portfolio of AUMA Drives is quite comprehensive.

From concept design to customer-specific test series right through to industrialised production: Engineering  gains ground within corporate philosophy. Our engeneering service aims to achieve both service quality and customer satisfaction. A convincing concept: Our special solutions are working reliably both in the world's largest solar thermal power plant in California as well as in the largest desalination plant in Dubai.

In the Gear  sector, AUMA drives already made it into the inner circle of the world leading manufacturers when still under the name of GFCAntriebsSysteme. We are specialised in development and production of individual components such as worm wheel sets, worm gear units, helical worm gear units, worm helical gear units as well as double worm gear units. Furthermore, AUMA Drives shows expertise in complete drive system solutions such as elevator gear units, escalator gear units and slewing gear units which are tailor-made and can on request be completely developed and manufactured to customer requirements.

Increasing product variants and the dynamics of demand shape internal processes from design right through to production at the plants. To control growing complexity, machining at AUMA Drives GmbH is organized according to the Lean Manufacturing Principle. The methods of KANBAN and the 5s prinziple are applied to all production processes.

Focussing on customized product solutions and expanding into internationnal markets increased our econimic groth in such way, that production areas and capacities had to be enlarged. By now, soley the assembly area in our 2015/16 expanded plant II compromises 4,500m2. Currently, our site in Coswig (Germany) employes approximately 220 staff members in two plants.
