Strategic Partnership Will Expand Drive Line Transmission Business Opportunities
Reich Drive Systems UK Limited, a subsidiary of German based
Dipl.-Ing. Herwarth Reich GmbH, known as Reich, and Marine & Industrial Transmissions
Limited, part of Axel Johnson International, have today announced a Strategic
Partnership. This new working relationship will allow each of the two organisations to benefit from their respective expertise and provide a comprehensive
range of coupling solutions for applications within the Marine, Industrial, Mining and Specialist Vehicle sectors.

both torsionally flexible and torsionally rigid couplings that have become
recognised internationally for theirquality, reliability and performance. Reich products are used widely in several industries including power generation, marine, oil & gas, off/on highway and the general industrial sector.

transmissions portfolio offered by Marine & Industrial Transmissions
Limited. Both companies currently operate within many of the same market
sectors and therefore, there is a strong synergy across the two businesses.

delighted to be partnering with a company that already has a detailed
understanding of the markets withinwhich we operate. We look forward
to working closely with Marine & Industrial Transmissions Limited and

cements MIT's commitment as a complete driveline supplier. Reich's
'design to customer' philosophy enables MIT to offer thoroughly
bespoke coupling solutions where the customer specification is at
the forefront of design. Providing solutions that meet not only very
specific applications but also ensure precise torsional control
