It's always a remarkable spectacle: When the tiny tugboats in the Port of Hamburg pull one of the huge ocean-going container ships behind them along the long quay wall between HafenCity and the Kohlbrand Bridge. Often, the supplier of the tugboat engines that make this all happen is Baumüller. Since its foundation in 1930, the globally active company has developed into a German world market leader.
But it has long expanded beyond producing marine engines: the global player is now a specialist in all kinds of electrical automation and drive systems. Today, at 40 locations worldwide Baumüller develops and produces intelligent system solutions for many industrial sectors, the fields of e-mobility and power generation as well as software solutions from its own systems house: its subsidiary Baumüller Anlagen-Systemtechnik.
