Siemens Mechanical Drives Unit to become Flender GmbH

03 July 2017

With effect from 1st  October 2017, the Siemens Mechanical Drives unit (MD) will be operating in the market as Flender GmbH, a Siemens Company. Branches will also take on the new name worldwide. This move follows an earlier announcement that the unit would be run as a stand-alone company under the Siemens umbrella.

Flender is a strong brand with a tradition more than a century old, and we’ve always done business under the name. At this year’s Hannover Messe, we highlighted Flender even more brightly, and already made a splash with our stand-alone fair booth for gear units and couplings. Eventually all the unit’s activities worldwide will be gathered under Flender,” explained Stefan Tenbrock, CEO of Siemens Mechanical Drives.

“It’s an important step in our transformation into a stand-alone firm under Siemens AG, acting as a market leader for our customers worldwide and thinking like a mid-sized company,”  he continued. The business with gearboxes for wind turbines will also be part of
Flender GmbH and will continue to operate under the successful Winergy brand.

The future Flender GmbH is a provider of components for mechanical drive technology, producing at eight locations with more than 6,000 employees around the world. Its product range embraces a portfolio of gear units and couplings, drive applications and the associated services. The range of sectors served includes industries such as wind power, cement production, marine shipping, and conveyor and lifting technology.
