Ströter and BEGE Drives

BEGE has taken over the operations of Ströter Antriebstechnik.

Acquisition of Ströter Antriebstechnik by BEGE

In 2015, BEGE took over the sales and production operations of Ströter Antriebstechnik. This acquisition allows BEGE to increase its capacity for the production and sale of innovative drive components.

High-quality power transmission

Ströter has an impressive history focusing on the manufacture of high-quality products. Ströter started in the mid-1940s in Düsseldorf as a manufacturer and supplier of variable speed drives. The range expanded steadily to include helical bevel gear motors and flange encoders, which kept Ströter at the forefront of technology.

With high-quality, food-safe drive components, Ströter has managed to reach and retain machine builders in various sectors, including the food industry. Thanks to continuous development, Ströter was able to build up a strong reputation with companies in machine and mechanical engineering. Internal quality assurance, advanced solutions and a high degree of flexibility made Ströter a reliable partner in power transmission. These values match those of BEGE, which has been working with Ströter since the 1960s.


We are therefore delighted that we could take over Ströter’s sales and production operations as of 2015 and expand our product range.

Gerard Paulides, director of BEGE: “In technical terms, Ströter is an attractive party with a stable market share. This acquisition strengthens BEGE’s market position within the industry and underlines our focus on high quality and innovation.”

With the acquisition of Ströter, BEGE is continuing its mission to unburden industrial companies by creating, optimizing and maintaining reliable drive systems. We are seamlessly integrating production of the Ströter range into our current production facilities.
