The approximately 350 shipyards in Germany generate annual sales of around 15 billion euros. Hydraulic systems often move loads weighing several tons in shipbuilding and repair. In addition to robustness, corrosion protection is of decisive importance. We are at your side in the field of shipyards and shipbuilding with our cross-industry expertise and experience. It's all about solutions that are both precise and reliable to operate, as well as offering maximum stability and safety.

Many of our systems have their origins in other industries. Together with our customers, we define the requirements and develop the appropriate solution with our competence and expertise. We rely on proven and modern components. This ensures operational reliability and easy maintenance. As a result, our solutions are also investment-proof. Extensions or adaptations to additional requirements can be realized economically efficiently by replacing individual components.


Tail lift systems on ships and stern garages on yachts often lower and lift heavy loads under difficult, unstable conditions. Whether ship cargo, vehicles on a ferry or the jet ski on the yacht, special systems are employed. Frequently used are reliable load holding and lowering valves made of high-quality stainless steel. This ensures the highest quality, reliability and service life in seawater applications. The systems are controlled with modern waterproof and floatable radio remote controls.
