Innovation and tradition for 70 years

In 1946 Wilhelm Vogel founded the company Wilhelm Vogel GmbH in Oberboihingen as a metalworking company. As soon as in 1950, the focus was already on gearwheel production, mainly for standard bevel gears. When the production of in-house developed helical bevel gearboxes started in 1965, the foundation stone was laid for global success and complete concentration on gearbox engineering. Today, with one of the most comprehensive gearbox ranges from a single source, VOGEL Antriebstechnik stands for precision, innovation and top product quality.
