A pioneer in the development of small motors and gear motors known as “sub-fractionals”, Merkle-Korff Industries has contributed to the success of countless commercial, industrial and consumer products since its founding in 1911. Merkle-Korff showed its innovative side early – developing the original small gearmotor in the 1920s, followed by the simple cup-drop motor in soft drink machines in the 1950s, and then through-the-door ice dispensing systems. Throughout its history, Merkle-Korff has consistently developed innovative products that drive successful product introductions.
Today, after a century in business, Merkle-Korff remains at the technology forefront by providing industry leading BLDC, PMDC, PSC, and AC gearmotor and motor solutions for applications in the commercial food equipment, consumer appliance, vending, pellet stove, pump, medical and other various markets.
Merkle-Korff is an operating unit of Nidec Motion Control, a global manufacturing enterprise that provides custom engineered control, motor, and drive system solutions for world class customers in such markets as robotics, autonomously-guided vehicles, commercial food equipment, pumping & actuation, renewable energy and medical markets.
