CURRAX provides powertrain solutions and has built a name in the industry by delivering high quality engineering services. They specialize in drive technology and automation. Powertrains are used in large and small industrial machines like pumps, conveyor belts, and turbines.

The strategy for CURRAX to remain competitive has been digitization.
