Worldwide news NEWS AND MARKETS Innovation since 1927: Bauer Gear Motor celebrates 90 th anniversary Today, geared motors are a common sight in almost every industrial environment. They are an efficient, compact and reliable technology that allows power to be precisely transmitted. The development and advancement of this technology is largely due to the company Bauer Gear Motor, who in 1927 became one of the pioneers of this crucial technology. Now a part of Altra Industrial Motion Corporation, the brand is as strong as ever. In 1927, Wilhelm Bauer acquired a small electric motor factory in Esslingen, Germany. It was here he began to implement the revolutionary idea of coupling a high speed electric motor with a gearbox. The idea proved popular and under Wilhelm’s son, Eberhard Bauer, the company flourished and quickly expanded across Europe. In 2011, the company was acquired by Altra Industrial Motion, a global manufacturer of power transmission and motion control products. Collaborating with the Altra group has provided Bauer, the opportunity to expand its presence in the global market place. Now in its 90th year, Bauer is showing no signs of slowing down. On the eve of its 90th anniversary, Bauer is allowing itself a short break from looking to the future to celebrate its impressive past.
