History

Technology & progress

Reich was founded in 1919 by the brothers Karl and Franz Reich in Zella-Mehlis / Thuringia in Germany. What started off as a small family business with the production of bicycle parts has since evolved into a leading manufacturer of turned parts such as transmission and steering system components, ball bearings and components for fuel injection systems.

With the foundation of Reich LLC on 30 September 2010 Reich has grown into an internationally operating enterprise. Reich LLC benefits from a long history in manufacturing excellence and entrepreneurship.
