Gearing is our DNA
Facts and Figures Gearing is our DNA

Gearing – besides ultra-fine surfaces, this is our main area of expertise at the DVS TECHNOLOGY GROUP. But gearing is also part of our business philosophy: the interlinking of extremely specialized competencies within the Group, of literally centuries of mechanical engineering experience with modern digital processes and product solutions, and above all of human skills and abilities. This is how we create solutions that surpass anything that the sum of the individual trades could conceivably create. And this yields a level of efficiency that makes it possible to tackle the challenges of the future in mechanical engineering quickly, flexibly, and economically.
