A gear construction specialist with tradition

Young and old at the same time, experienced and innovative: This special mix is the recipe for success at Dr. W. Ostermann DOB-Getriebebau GmbH & Co. KG.  

Ever since its establishment in 1907, the company and especially its product portfolio have experienced continuous further development. But where the corporate culture is concerned, we have remained entirely traditional. As an owner-managed enterprise, we tend to think for the long term, and the owner family is involved in the day to day business. Our short decision-making routes make us fast and our processes efficient.

We attach great importance to the training and qualification of our employees – and to cooperating with our clients for a long time. This is the basis of our company’s success. For over one hundred years now.


DOB gear units will function with great efficiency and without malfunctions for many years, often under extreme conditions. Our individual, in-house project planning provides the prerequisites for this – based on many decades of experience with drive technologies and the application in question.

We cooperate closely with our clients and ask the right questions for delivering the optimal drive solution. Our hierarchies are flat and the routes are short – not only within the company, but also to our clients.


Spur, bevel-helical, planetary, pinion and transfer gear boxes: Ostermann has a comprehensive product range. This calls for a high degree of complexity in our internal processes. Our extensive production competence and great production depth lend us speed and flexibility.

Plus: Our products are “Made in Germany”. And that for over a 100 years already.
