|Voith started out as a supplier to the paper industry
in 1867. Paper machines were mainly driven by water
wheels, therefore Voith began by producing water
turbines for energy generation. Paper machines and
turbines contain many gearwheels and gear units.
Hence it is no surprise that Voith found advanced
solutions in power transmission. Here Voith was able to
utilize its hydrodynamics know-how it had gained from
its turbine design activities.
Since then, the traditional portfolio of the company
has been supplemented by wide-ranging activities
in the area of industrial services. Nowadays, Voith
sets standards in the paper, energy, mobility and
service markets and is one of the largest family-owned
enterprises in Europe.
