GTS, formerly Stützel Elektro GmbH, began in 1896 with electrical machine production in Aalen. In this dawning era of electricity, Stützel Elektro built a wide range of devices such as motors for washing machines, blowers, DC generators and motors, and alternators. Soon they switched to power generation with electrical current. This is the basis for the trove of experience in the “Stützel Elektro” brand, which ranges from the design of low-voltage DC systems for galvanic and other purposes, DC dynamos and three-phase squirrel-cage motors in many varieties, and transformers, to a well-equipped motor repair shop. Starting in the 1990s, the Stützel Elektro‑ company developed and built generators, such as for Bosch and other companies. The Stützel GmbH + Co. motor factory in Gmünd became 1996 the company Generator.Technik.Systeme. GmbH & Co. KG.
Today, GTS is a highly motivated and high-performance company, with leading expertise and experience comparable to anyone. Continuous development work allows us to provide cutting-edge, electronically controlled generator technology, with intelligent precision and technical perfection that mean maximum efficiency for our customers.
