In 1934 Paul (* 1908, † 1983) and Wilhelm Stöber (* 1904, † 1992) founded a mechanical workshop. Driven by the will to implement their own ideas and optimize things that they did not consider perfect. This spirit shapes the company to this day.
1943 – STOBER adjustment drive
In 1943, STOBER brought the self-developed STOBER adjustment drive onto the market, thereby revolutionizing manufacturing companies.
The second generation
In 1982 the management of the company changed to the second generation to Siegfried Thiel (* 1936, † 1990), Ursula Thiel (* 1937, † 1997) and Bernd Stöber (* 1944).
As technical director, Bernd Stöber recognized the growing importance of electrical speed adjustment for drive technology early on. For the first time, STOBER sold frequency converters, servo controllers and the corresponding software. The matching MGS geared motor system impressed with its modularity and unsurpassed quality.
1991 – STOBER USA
The establishment of a subsidiary with assembly in Maysville, Kentucky in 1991 was the big step for STOBER in the direction of a global company.
Further product developments
In 1993, STOBER succeeded as the first supplier in the world to directly marry high-precision planetary gear units with dynamic servomotors.
In 1997, we bought land and broke ground for our new building at 1781 Downing Drive, which is our current location to date.
With constant further developments and additions to the range of products and services, STOBER has developed into a successful system provider and experienced partner with tailor-made drive and automation solutions from a single source. The increasing demand and growing importance of drive technology in many markets have been followed over the years by investments in new production capacities, modernization of buildings and production facilities as well as in the worldwide network of STOBER.
