Today the European Committee of Associations of Manufacturers of Gears and Transmission Parts (EUROTRANS) consists of 7 member associations from Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom and Switzerland (since 2010), being the national Mechanical Power Transmission associations in their respective countries.
Within the EU the member associations represent the interests of more than 600 enterprises with a collective annual production of more than 14 billion EURO (without the Bearing Industry and the automotive business). Within Europe at least 160.000 people are employed by our sector.
From the formation of EUROTRANS, in 1969 the General Secretariat was based in Brussels until 1972, it then moved to Paris, and since 1st January 1998 it has been located in Frankfurt.
Our activities and daily work were supported by people from the industry. Each member company in the member associations of EUROTRANS can take part in our meetings and projects and can direct improvements in our work.
Our European industry is steering and controlling our activities.
