Who we are and what is our origin

Our success story began with gear parts in 1928. Read here how this has resulted in our exceptional expertise for custom made planetary gearboxes.

Neugart – why our most ingenious technology is listening

Anyone who has been successful in the planetary gearbox market for as long as we have knows one thing for sure: there are countless requirements from customers. We want to meet these requirements with our modular system in such a way that, in the end, economy, efficiency, durability and quality together make an unbeatable combination. However, we do not succeed in this with our modular system and Neugart gearboxes alone. We also succeed because we listen to you carefully. Because we quickly understand what you need and can quickly satisfy your requirements.

Our thinking, the way we work

Let's achieve more together!

Knowledge grows when it is shared. Nowhere is this more true than in the manufacture of planetary gearboxes.
So we don't keep our knowledge to ourselves. However, to make your gearbox solution truly perfect, we always
want to get to know your experience and requirements in detail. Because only then can we find exactly the right
one for you from among thousands of variants through use of our modular system.
