The origins of EMGR go back to the 19th Century to the company Bing AG, a sheet metal products factory.

After World War II the production of special electric motors for mining machinery was established on the present site. The Elektromotorenwerk Grünhain was founded in 1951 as a member of the collective VEM Antriebstechnik. The customers were literally on the doorstep of the factory. Manufactures of ashing machines, sewing machines, lawnmovers, printing machines and rock-crushing units relied on the quality and reliability of induction machines made in Grünhain.

After fall of the GDR, former state-owned businesses were available for privatization. One of the bidders interested was the Zehnder GmbH, a pump manufacturer from Frankfurt am Main. Although the owner Jürgen Zehnder was really looking out for a die-casting company for his pump program, in the end, he decided not just on the die casting part but on taking over the whole enterprise. The Zehnder pump activities were now moved also from Frankfurt to Grünhain and a cable manufacturing company was founded in addition as Standard Kabelkonfektion GmbH locally.

After the age successor arrangement the company EMGR (Elektromotorenwerk Grünhain GmbH) is belonging since 2007 to MS Industrie AG and MS Powertrain Technology Group.

Generally since then enormous power and energy was invested in the development of the company. Comprehensive investments in equipment, construction units building and in modern managerial methods coupled with the many years of experience of the Saxon engine manufacturer created the very condition allowing EMGR to produce a wide range of innovative drive systems to suit the customers´ individual requirements.

Even today EMGR is one of the associated strong industrial enterprises at the site Grünhain, as well as Zehnder Pumpen.

The subsidiary production factory EMGR EAD in Gabrovo/Bulgaria was added 2016 to support the global "drive" market activities of the EMGR group.

There target is given at specific motor-brake solutions for industry applications locally.
