ABOVE ALL R+W IS: THE PERFECT COUPLING. When R+W Antriebselemente GmbH was first established in 1990 in Klingenberg, Germany, there were three people on board. The head office is still there, but we are now more than 170 people, with subsidiaries in the USA, China, Italy, Singapore, France and Slovakia, and are partnered with over 60 well established distributors in more than 40 countries throughout the world. Many developments have lead to this success, but most importantly it was brought about by our endless search for the best possible coupling solutions as well as the high esteem in which...
