  • How long has the SACHS brand existed?
    SACHS historical record

    The SACHS brand has a long tradition. In 1894, the toolmaker and later name-giver Ernst Sachs filed his first bicycle wheel hub patent application. One year later, he founded the "Schweinfurter Präzisions-Kugellager-Werke Fichtel & Sachs" (precision ball bearing production plant) together with Karl Fichtel, a merchant and financier. From then on, one success followed the other. In 1937, the legendary Mercedes "Silver Arrows" triumphed with shocks and dampers and clutches from SACHS. Ernst Sachs' stated aim of using his pioneering spirit and ingenuity to secure and maintain a strong technological edge over his competitors is still reflected in today's brand philosophy. On this basis, the SACHS brand has been achieving continuous growth to the present day. Today, SACHS worldwide stands for top quality made in Germany.
