Reich Drive Systems UK Ltd.

With a heritage spanning over 70 years, REICH headquartered in Bochum Germany, has become recognised internationally as a world leading manufacturer of high quality and high performance torsionally flexible couplings that are used across a wide range of power transmission applications.

A key feature of REICH Coupling Technology is the in-house development and manufacture of our elastomeric elements. All power transmission elements are manufactured within our state of the art production facilities, and this coupled with our In-house test benches and inspection facilities, ensures that all REICH couplings, relied upon globally by many Blue Chip companies, are of the highest quality.

Reich Drive Systems UK Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of REICH and the distributor for REICH coupling technology throughout the whole of Great Britain and Ireland . Our UK team led, by General Manager David Proud who has over 20 year’s experience in the world of mechanical power transmission, is located in Stockport and ideally situated to provide the Sales, Service, Spares and Technical support you would expect from an industry leading manufacturer.

Our UK team are always available to discuss your requirements and assist in the selection and specification of the most appropriate coupling for your application. An essential component of our success is the “Designed to Customer” principle which allows us to create customised high-quality and long-lasting power transmission products in close cooperation with you, the customer. Our commitment to flexibility, quality, and on-time delivery, coupled with our ability to respond to the most diverse requirements, ensures the highest levels of customer satisfaction.
