History and Milestones


Based on an exiting history...

… promising a successful future!

For several years the reputation of “GHM” has guaranteed quality and innovation.

Equipped with the competence and experience of long-termed engineers of the former “STEYR-Werke” respective its following companies, GHM Engineering was founded in 1995 by Ing. Franz Peter Jegel as a specialized engineering company.


To provide production and testing services to customers, the foundation of GHM Production GmbH followed in 2007. Together with GHM Engineering GmbH & Co KG, both owned by Franz Peter Jegel,  the company group was able to become well-known as a specialist for unique solutions for automotive transfer cases and powertrain components especially on heavy-duty offroad vehicle field.

After the unexpected loss of the company owner in 2011, all assets were bought by the newly-founded and independent company GHM Transmission GmbH with CEO Ing. Walter HATTINGER.


Parallel to that, a strategic change from pure engineering service provider to a global-focused developer and producer of special applications on transmission field, particularly heavy-duty all-wheel-drive transmissions and powertrain components has taken place.
