Stieber was founded in Munich in 1937 and is now a medium-sized company employing 140 people at its locations in Heidelberg and Garching near Munich.

Stieber can reflect on numerous innovative developments during the course of the company’s history; innovations that have made it the European market leader. This ability has been proved for example during the development and design of the largest backstop in the world.

Stieber, part of the Altra Industrial motion group is – together with its sister companies Formsprag and Marland in the USA – the world´s market leader for overrunning clutches and backstops.

According to the customer’s wishes, or the application requirements, Stieber can design and manufacture special products in addition to the standard programme. We can, and have, supplied units with a torque capacity from less than 1 Nm all the way to 1,700,000 Nm. The latter represents the largest units ever produced, anywhere.

The extensive standard product programme offered by Stieber ensures that the maximum possible number of applications can be satisfied with a proven, off-the-shelf solution.
