Business Unit Drive Solutions

EMG Automation GmbH was founded on 22 June 1946 as a subsidiary of the “Nationale Automobilgesellschaft (NAG)”. The company produced brake lifting devices for use in industrial brakes. In 1977 the majority company EMH was founded in Brazil, which supplies the South American market with electromechanical and electro-hydraulic components. In 1980, EMG acquired Bielefeld Servo-Technik (BST) and has since then expanded the worldwide network of today’s BST eltromat International GmbH. In 1995, BST acquired a majority shareholding in the US company Pro Mark Technologies, which means that the EMG Group has been represented on all continents since then. In 2003, the headquarters of EMG’s parent company Elexis AG were relocated to Wenden (Sauerland).

More than 70 years of EMG, which is also more than 70 years of continuous growth and consistent development of new markets and sales areas. Today, EMG is a global company with more than 1000 employees. We supply our products to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) around the world and realize turnkey solutions for end customers. Our bond with Wenden ensures we remain grounded, while our global presence safeguards our future.


EMG is the specialist when it comes to intelligent and complex automation solutions and, in our capacity as a technological leader, we are the supplier of choice for our customers.

The main areas of application for series products, individual components and complex system solutions from the EMG group include continuous production processes in the metal, paper and plastic sectors, as well as in the foil and tyre industries.

We are steadily increasing our locations and the number of sales offices and we are able to cover a large number of regions, industries, and customers. For this purpose, it is important to represent a clear and solid value basis. Respect, reliability, and responsibility, coupled with a vision for future-oriented technologies, innovation, and quality, are values for which we stand, both with our outstanding products and our premium service.

Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, flexible and responsible employees are our greatest asset and the source of our success. “We are as good as the sum of our employees”. This reflects our corporate culture which we live up to in all our day-to-day dealings. To us, mutual appreciation, cooperation, and loyalty are key virtues. Being a traditionalist company, we identify with our region, its residents and local industrial history. Against this background, we are particularly concerned with securing jobs in Germany. Our forward-looking investments and our clear commitment to our production site demonstrate our ambitions in this regard.
