Company Profile
KTR has been developing power transmission components for mechanical and plant engineering under this slogan for more than fifty years. As a leading manufacturer of high-grade power transmission technology, braking and cooling systems, and hydraulic components, KTR is a dependable partner for any company that wishes to keep moving forward. It all began back in the 1950s. BoWex®, the first curved tooth coupling to combine steel and plastic, was developed at KTR’s headquarters in Rheine. This was shortly followed by ROTEX®, the first brand coupling to become a DIN standard. These successes fuel the imagination. And you can build on them – which is exactly what KTR does.
