Siemens brings together motors and large drives in new company

10 March 2023

Siemens is combining its business activities in the areas of low- to high-voltage motors, geared motors, medium-voltage converters and motor spindles, under the new name of Innomotics.

The portfolio includes an innovative solutions and digitalisation portfolio and a broad range of service offerings. The related businesses were previously assigned to the units Large Drives Applications and Digital Industries and to the legally separate Siemens companies Sykatec and Weiss Spindeltechnologie.

Effective 1 July  2023, Innomotics will operate in Germany as a legally separate company, with operational headquarters in Nuremberg. The carve-out in Germany will be completed effective the same date. The designated management team comprises Michael Reichle (CEO), Christoph Salentin (CFO) and Hermann Kleinod (CTO). The global carve-out is to be largely completed by the start of the new fiscal year on 1 October 2023.

“We’re convinced of the new company’s future success. The combined strengths of its individual businesses and the power to act independently will enable Innomotics to unlock significant value for its customers, leverage its growth potential and thus ensure its success going forward,” said Ralf P. Thomas, CFO of Siemens AG.

“With its size, its broad portfolio and our highly motivated people, Innomotics will be a trailblazer in the market and capture a leading competitive position. We’ll profit from the strong growth potential driven also, in particular, by the sustainability-oriented demand for more efficient electrification and energy consumption in industry and society. I’m convinced that Innomotics will provide us with the optimal setup to leverage this potential,” said Michael Reichle, designated CEO of Innomotics.

Innomotics will continue to collaborate closely with other Siemens businesses through partnerships in the areas of technology and sales and in trade relationships.
