We are international partners from Lake Constance to all over the world. No matter where. Whether automotive, mechanical and plant engineering or high technology, our customers produce internationally.
As a system supplier, we deliver precisely the solutions that our customers around the world expect with commitment and know-how, at a price that is competitive. In order to meet this requirement, we maintain an extensive network of procurement and partner structures that enable us to react flexibly and quickly to the changing requirements of the market, thus ensuring our long-term performance and the success of our products. 

Competence in precision


Values, ​​that set us apart

Since 2002, Kern Antriebstechnik GmbH has been certified as a manufacturer of small motors according to ISO 9001 and since 2003, as a production facility according to ATEX, we have been responsible for the production of operating conditions at risk of explosions. That is why we value motivated, committed and successful employees who are the quality of our products, just like our customers.

Because our employees are our greatest asset.

A core product is always as individual as its area of ​​application. Industry requirements and special applications are very different, so all of our products are carefully tailored solutions for our customers’ use cases. Our products are custom-made – there is no standard solution at Kern. We are proud of that, because it is one of our unique selling points.
As a medium-sized company with short communication and production channels, decisions can be made quickly and thus tight lead times can be guaranteed. This is only possible if all competencies and production steps from engine software to machining and plastic injection molding to toolmaking are in-house.
Kern manufactures precision drives, with a special focus on electric motors that run extremely smoothly and run smoothly. Very sensitive applications in particular benefit from these qualities, be it measuring machines or production machines with high demands on precision and accuracy. Our brakes and clutches are reliable, with no residual torque and stop applications precisely to the point. The coils from Kern are adapted to customer requirements based on years of experience. Coils wound exactly in layers are also possible, so that they are as effective as possible in the smallest of spaces.
For products, employees and the environment: We are responsible for our products and thus for the success of our customers. Our products are characterized by their reliability and durability.

We cultivate a cooperative corporate culture based on respect and trust and take our social responsibility for the health and wellbeing of our employees seriously, because they are our most valuable asset. We are aware of our ecological responsibility. That is why we are careful with our resources.
