Strategic Partnership Will Expand Drive Line Transmission Business Opportunities


Reich, headquartered in Bochum, Germany, manufactures a wide range of both torsionally flexible and torsionally rigid couplings that have become recognised internationally for their quality, reliability and performance. Reich products are used widely in several industries including power generation, marine, oil & gas, off/on highway and the general industrial sector. The UK subsidiary, Reich Drive Systems UK Ltd, is based in Stockport, Cheshire.

Marine & Industrial Transmissions Limited, with bases in both Northern and Southern England, are an established centre of excellence for driveline systems, providing customers with full product life cycle support from system design, supply, commissioning, maintenance, repair, spares and overhaul or replacement.

Reich’s comprehensive product range will enhance the existing driveline transmissions portfolio offered by Marine & Industrial Transmissions Limited. Both companies currently operate within many of the same market sectors and therefore, there is a strong synergy across the two businesses.

Reich UK Ltd General Manager David Proud commented, “We are delighted to be partnering with a company that already has a detailed understanding of the markets within which we operate. We look forward to working closely with Marine & Industrial Transmissions Limited and contributing our expertise as part of the development of innovative driveline transmissions solutions.”

Tom Binns, Sales Manager MIT, said, “The partnership with Reich further cements MIT’s commitment as a complete driveline supplier. Reich’s ‘design to customer’ philosophy enables MIT to offer thoroughly bespoke coupling solutions where the customer specification is at the forefront of design. Providing solutions that meet not only very specific applications but also ensure precise torsional control for ultimate driveline success.”
