By CT2 Staff03 February 2017
Voith is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2017, marking the occasion with events across its 160 worldwide locations.
Voith’s origins began on Jan. 27, 1867 when Friedrich Voith assumed control of his father’s locksmith workshop, located in Heidenheim on the river Brenz in Germany.
Since that time, Voith has grown to serve five markets – energy, oil & gas, paper, raw materials and transport & automotive – with about 19,000 employees and four division groups (hydro, turbo, paper and digital solutions). The company also has 4000 active patents.
