As a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drive-based automation, SEW-EURODRIVE has established a reputation for quickly solving the most difficult power transmission and motion control challenges. We introduced the gearmotor in 1931. In the 80 years since then, we have been bringing the best in drive technology to our customers. That commitment has led to a history of innovations — the first variable speed gearmotor, early development of electronic drives, some of the first successful efforts to decentralize control, and the first motor with energy-efficient copper rotors.
Exceptional solutions have made SEW-EURODRIVE the standard for drive performance and reliability in the United States since they first began working here in the early 1970s. Enthusiastic customer response to their variable speed gearmotors led them to open their first assembly center in Troy, Ohio, in 1975. Within a few short years, SEW was operating four additional regional assembly centers across the U.S. — in Bridgeport, NJ; Dallas, TX; Hayward, CA, and Lyman, SC. Today, they provide expert application assistance and products from they five regional assembly centers, more than 60 technical sales offices, and a nationwide distributor network.
Quickly solving problems so that their customers can be more productive and profitable continues to be their priority. They offer the broadest product line in the industry — from gearmotors and heavy industrial gear units to electronic drives, software, and complete drive-based automation systems. Their products are based on a unique system of modular components that can be assembled in literally millions of different configurations so every drive solution is custom built to the customer’s exact specifications. And their regional assembly centers stock millions of dollars of our modular inventory for quick delivery of drive solutions and spare parts anywhere in the U.S.
