About us

EMGR: Innovative Antriebe für individuelle Anforderungen

Whether it’s a fan, circular saw, compressor, machine tool or pump – they all have one thing in common: a motor to drive them. And many of these motors have their origins in Grünhain, a small town in the Erzgebirge district near Schwarzenberg.

Since its foundation in 1951, Elektromotorenwerk Grünhain, or EMGR for short, has been a byword for reliability and quality. More than 70 years of experience in electric motor manufacturing, state-of-the-art technology as well as qualified and committed employees are a guarantee for excellent products.

The Grünhainer Elektromotorenwerk has established itself as a supplier of universal drives for consumer goods, trade, commerce and industry. In addition to the core business of three-phase and single-phase AC motors in the power range from 0.06 to 7.5 kW, which make up the majority of motor production, flat, built-in and pot motors as well as open device motors are manufactured in Grünhain.

No standard goods

The majority of our orders are not standard goods, but customer-specific developments, adapted to the design of the respective application. Thus, desired additional options such as integrated brakes, switch or plug combinations or the additional installation of frequency converters are possible without any problems. In this way, we always guarantee our customers tailor-made solutions and maximum satisfaction.

Mobility of the future

In addition to the continuous further development of the basic elements of the motors, our own development laboratory is increasingly working in the direction of energy-saving motors with frequency converters and solutions for electromobility.

The ERZMO® MS 1 is our powerful mid-mounted motor, which was specially developed for cargo drives such as cargo bikes.

In-house foundry

Our EMGR range of motors is supplemented by aluminum die castings for our own and third-party use as well as cable assemblies.
In our in-house foundry, high-quality aluminum die-cast products are produced here every day, which are used in a wide variety of areas. A major customer here is the automotive industry, for example.

Strong vision, strong people, strong company

The company’s particular strengths are the experience of its employees, their ability to develop customized solutions in the shortest possible time, and the high level of vertical integration.

From stamping and aluminum die casting to cable assembly, mechanical processing, winding and motor assembly, all operations are carried out in-house.
This high level of technology and manufacturing know-how is an enormous benefit for our customers.
