About us

Henschel was founded in Kassel in 1810. Their activities in building gearboxes started 1918. Henschel gearboxes are used worldwide for a variety of applications and are a synonym for quality, reliability
and performance.

In many areas we are viewed as the trendsetter of the industry. Since the production of the first counterrotating extruder gearbox in 1972 Henschel Antriebstechnik has developed in to the leading
supplier for twin-screw extruder gearboxes.

In the meantime the company presents themselves as a system supplier for the extrusion industry with innovative concepts reaching far deeper than the clearcut drive unit for extruders. In addition to the gearboxes for single as well as counter and co-rotating extruders, well known under the trademark DURUMAX, further
products were added over the years. Precedence has been set for efficiency and reliability, yet keeping economy of scale as the highest priority.
