As a development partner and manufacturer of innovative drive technology, Drexler Automotive combines years of experience in motorsport with expertise in production. Herbert Drexler founded the company in Salzweg near Passau in 1998 after his Porsche 911 GT2 caught fire during the FIA GT World Cup and he retired from his active racing career. The company’s beginnings date back to the 1980s when Drexler Automotive developed and produced the first locking differentials and racing transmissions – including for its own racing cars. Today, Drexler Automotive employs 130 highly skilled people who develop and produce top quality limited slip differentials and other drive components with the help of 27 machine tools from DMG MORI. The products are put through their paces on in-house test benches. The most recent investment was in an NMV 3000 DCG with an AWC system for 34 pallets.
