»Our philosophy is to always keep our nose ahead of the rest technologically but this nose should not be a meter long.«
Dr. Fritz Faulhaber jun.
It all began in 1947 in the fine mechanics workshop of Dr. Fritz Faulhaber. Resulting from his work in the area of camera development in 1958 Dr. Fritz Faulhaber Sr registered the “Elektrischer Kleinstmotor” (electrical micromotor) as patent DE1188709 in Germany. His invention was a milestone in precision mechanics, and paved the way for new areas of application for small electric motors. Since then it has become an essential component in many of today’s cutting edge applications.
Developing outstanding technical solutions is in the DNA of the FAULHABER GROUP and has always been a key factor in its expansion and acquisition strategy. In the past decades the FAULHABER GROUP has diversified and acquired companies in key areas of high precision miniature and micro technology. Today, its four business divisions the group today hold more than over 50 patents worldwide.
