If you understand how a motor works, how all the different parts intersect and work together, then there should be no problem with regard to running a successful, sustainable business. MENZEL Elektromotoren GmbH is the perfect example for this, as the producer of practical, durable drive solutions is turning 90 years old this year. Kurt Menzel, grandfather of current CEO Mathis Menzel, was only 23 years old, when he laid the foundation for the MENZEL Motors story. It was Berlin in 1927 when he found the Kurt Menzel Elektromotoren company. After about 15 years, the company faced its first great challenge, when the warehouses, Workshops and offices were damaged by bombs during the Second World War. With a great deal of diligence and hard work, the Menzels prevailed and, about ten years later, the company first expanded by relocating to a 10,000-square-metre-large property.
