The company with its long tradition emerged from "Vorrichtungs- und Lehrenbau Walter Eckold", which was founded in 1936 and produced equipment and components for the aircraft industry.

The production of continuously variable chain transmissions and expansion disks was taken up in 1951. In this area, the company has enjoyed both national and international success since that date.

In April 1996, the company was integrated in the SCHLOTE GROUP and is now active in the market as Getriebe- und Antriebstechnik Wernigerode GmbH, primarily as a service provider in the automotive industry.


In 2001 the company received the award "Grand Prix for Medium-Sized Enterprises" from the Oskar Patzelt Foundation, among other reasons for the creation of new jobs and apprenticeships, investments in equipment, commitment to the region, service and customer proximity.

Following the award "Oscar for small and medium-sized enterprises" in 2001, the company was once again honored as a finalist in the "Oscar of Oscars" in September 2003.
