About SEW Eurodrive
As a world leader in drive technology and a pioneer in drive-based automation, SEW-Eurodrive has established a reputation for quickly solving the most difficult power transmission and motion control challenges. The company introduced the gearmotor in 1931, and in the more than 75 years since then, has been bringing the best in drive technology to its customers. That commitment has led to a history of innovations — the first variable speed gearmotor, early development of electronic drives, some of the first successful efforts to decentralize control and the first motor with energy-efficient copper rotors.
Enthusiastic customer response to the company's variable speed gearmotors led to the opening of a first assembly center in Troy, Ohio, in 1975. Within a few short years, SEW was operating four additional regional assembly centers across the U.S. — in Bridgeport, NJ; Dallas, TX; Hayward, CA, and Lyman, SC. Today, the company provides expert application assistance and products from our five regional assembly centers, more than 60 technical sales offices and a nationwide distributor network.
