Company profile

Ziehl-Abegg (Künzelsau, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany) is one of the global leading companies in the ventilation and drive technology sector with matching control technology. Examples of application areas of the products are heat and refrigeration plants or clean room and agricultural systems. Ziehl-Abegg set the basis for modern fan drives already back in the fifties: External rotor motors that today continue to be the state of the art worldwide. Another sector is electric motors, for example, which provide the drive in elevators, medical applications (computer tomography) or in deep-sea underwater vehicles. The topic of electromobility in road traffic was placed into the hands of the Ziehl-Abegg Automotive GmbH team in 2012. Sales and further improvement of a wheel-hub drive, which is already being used in several countries, are being developed there.

The high-tech company provides 1,750 employees with jobs in South German production plants (worldwide 3,450 employees).
