Customer opinions in the area of gearboxes for flood barriers.

A great service with the highest quality

Thank you for the uncomplicated solution to our problem!

The service and speed are unbeatable

You definitely deliver faster than I get an SAP order number internally...

The gearbox is already installed and runs perfectly.

I would like to thank you and the whole team of Kachelmann for the good cooperation. The gearbox is already installed and runs perfectly.

Absolutely satisfied, very good service, always happy to return!

Great that you have all the documents of the gearboxes immediately at hand ... with us it stops in 1990.
And some manufacturers could take a leaf out of the running time of your gearboxes.
