Company History

From family business to global automotive supplier

From a Swabian family business to a globally-operating automotive supplier – that is the route that GETRAG has travelled down in the last 82 years. In 1935, the 20-year-old Hermann Hagenmeyer bought the Pfeiffer plants in Ludwigsburg, Baden-Württemberg, and thereby laid the foundation for the GETRAG Getriebe- und Zahnradfabrik Hermann Hagenmeyer GmbH & Cie KG.

The commitment and passion of several generations, technical innovations and strategic decisions have all brought us to the position in which we now stand. We are very proud of this development.
