Number 1 for synchronizers
In the automotive industry, HOERBIGER Drive Technology is the prime choice for synchronizers. With a sales volume of EUR 339 million in 2012 the operating performance slightly decreased by about 2 percent over the previous year’s sales volume of EUR 345 million.
The Strategic Business Unit remained consistently focused over the last three years. The Offroad business was successfully sold and the proceeds invested in expanding the synchronizer expertise.
Simultaneously with the focus on the synchronizer business, the organization of the Strategic Business Unit Drive Technology was advanced. Production, sales and support functions have resulted in a market-oriented position of the Business Division Shift.
The Business Division Torque encompasses the manufacturing facilities for automatic transmission components at the Penzberg and Waterloo locations.
