SACHS Clutches

SACHS Clutches

Renowned performance and reliability

In 2001 Sachs was sold to ZF Friedrichshafen AG, and renamed ZF Sachs AG. The bicycle division was sold to a US company, the Chicago-based SRAM Corporation, leaving the Sachs division of ZF to focus on the production of automobile components for drivetrains and chassis

Today, the company’s renowned performance and reliability mean that numerous automotive manufacturers fit their vehicles with SACHS products. Every year, more than 10 million new vehicles roll off production lines equipped with their components. When reputable quality is your prerequisite, Diesel Electric is your go-to supplier for the clutches that are fit for OE manufacturers’ production lines.

History of the company

On 1 August 1895.  The Schweinfurter Präzisions-Kugellagerwerke Fichtel & Sachs general partnership (oHG) was founded in Schweinfurt. Inventors Ernst Sachs (1867-1932) and Karl Fichtel, produced ball bearings and bicycle hubs. In 1897 the company introduced its freewheel for bicycles, which became widely popular.

By 1911, the year Fichtel died, the company had approximately 7,000 employees. In 1923, the oHG partnership was changed to a stock corporation. The ball bearing division was sold to the SKF, a Swedish ball bearing corporation, with the condition that the products remain in Schweinfurt permanently.

From 1929 to 1996, F&S also produced motors, first for bicycles, and later for motorbikes, two-stroke snowmobiles, and small cars. (The Messerschmitt KR175 and Messerschmitt KR 200 used Sachs engines (1955 to 1964)). In 1929, F&S started the production of automobile components, mainly clutches, and shock absorbers. Ernst died in 1932, and, in 1936, his son Willy Sachs donated the Willy-Stadion sporting arena to the City of Schweinfurt.

In the 1960s and early 1980s, F&S purchased several traditional bike parts companies and brands like Hercules, Rabeneick, Huret, Maillard, and Sedis.[3]

In early 1970, the company produced the revolutionary Wankel-engine-powered Hercules motorcycle.

1987, the German Mannesmann AG acquired the majority of F&S stock, and in 1997 F&S was renamed Mannesmann AG.
