“An invention prevails.” This slogan is a homage to our company’s founder Erich Franke who invented the Antifriction Bearing in 1934. The principle of the four race rings that he developed is still followed in our company today. We are convinced that nothing will change in the future. Today, Franke is a globally renowned specialist in Antifriction Bearings and Linear Systems. We employ 280 people in development and construction, production and administration at our headquarters in Aalen. We also have numerous representations around the globe.
