With the setup of a foundry and engineering factory for the coal mining industry in the Ruhr Area of Germany in North-Rhein Westphalia, the successful history of the Eickhoff Group started over 140 years ago. Despite all its global activities and as a medium-sized family company with tradition, the Eickhoff Group , still feels strongly attached to its roots. This commitment is exemplified by its employees. The Group is comprised by a number of subsidiaries. One of these is the subsidiary Antriebstechnik GmbH,  which manufactures a wide variety of industrial gearboxes for highly demanding fields of application.

Expertise. Innovation. Passion.

Eickhoff started manufacturing gearboxes for the wind turbine industry in 1990 and have developed extensive experience in this area since then. Sound expertise, zest for innovation and and a passion for technology are its driving forces in this particular segment.In close cooperation with its customers, they design longlasting, service-friendly gearboxes which have reduced overall plant operating costs.

Within its group of companies, it benefits from a broad vertical range of manufacturing experience. For example: its foundry has an extensive knowledge base in metallurgy, which it utilizes in making its qualitatively highgrade castings. Its engineering team is highly competent in the fields of gear component manufacturing and casting machining as a result of their long-standing experience in the production of high-performance machinery and gearboxes for the mining industry.

Service. Development.

With regard to its engineering services, Eickhoff's customers have permanent personal contact for all technical and organizational issues from one hand. Outside usual business hours, customers can reach Eickhoff any time via its worldwide service hotline. Since its service team shares the perspective of its customers, the main focus is on ensuring the ongoing operation of onsite wind turbines. Equipped with mobile repair kits, its service engineers arrive onsite exactly at the agreed time. Generally, gearboxes can be directly repaired on the tower. Experience gained by its interdisciplinary group of experts has in turn encouraged further development of new and series production gearboxes. Eickhoff's service portfolio also comprises all inspection and maintenance operations. In addition, Eickhoff compiles customized service packages upon request. For the gearbox diagnostics, it makes use of its E-Goms (Eickhoff Gearbox Online Monitoring System) system that was certified in 2004.
