For over 60 years, Franz Wölfer Elektromaschinenfabrik has been developing and manufacturing smooth-running electric motors for use in hoisting equipment, in and on ships as well as in general mechanical engineering. The company claims to be one of the leading manufacturers of hoist motors in terms of quality and technology. Its electric motors, produced exclusively in Osnabrück-Sutthausen, feature a performance of up to 2.000 kW and are produced for individually adapted drive mechanism solutions. The company is constantly expanding its site location and modernising its production technology. In 2007 it acquired a testing station, which is one of the most modern and efficient systems for testing electric motors in Northern Germany.
