About us

KPG Rotating Solutions is a medium-sized family business based in Albbruck in the southern Black Forest. Our innovative and creative teams will guide you from the design and engineering of your drives and generators, through the precision manufacturing of components and gearboxes, to maintenance and service. You can always rely on the innovative power of our engineering solutions, the high quality of our components and our commitment to on-time delivery.

As an OEM-independent, competent, and fast service provider, we also reliably take care of the maintenance of your turbo generators and gearboxes, so that you can quickly identify faults and avoid expensive downtime. We know how important maximum machine availability is for you and that “repairing instead of replacing” is not only more efficient, but also more sustainable for the society. After all, we want to ensure that the world keeps rotating – for you and also for the next generations.


Our innovative turnkey solutions drive the energy transition and a sustainable future. With robust supply chains and the principle of “repair instead of replace”, we stand for the best possible conservation of resources with maximum machine availability. At the same time, we always keep an eye on the opportunities of digitally connected production and diagnostic technology to shape the industry of tomorrow together with you.

KPG Rotating Solutions is growing and so is our plant in Albbruck. In our state-of-the-art “factory of the future”, we are increasing our production capacities for you, including modern logistics for even better adherence to delivery dates, and expanded crane capacities for the assembly of even larger machines.

For our employees, we are creating the workplaces of tomorrow with a transparent, glass connection between office and workshop, high indoor air quality, modern work areas, comfortable meeting zones, our own restaurant, sunny outdoor terraces, and parking spaces for e-bikes and e-cars. Sustainability is of course a top priority in our future factory: with energy-efficient construction, 260 kW solar panels and a green roof. Join us in looking forward to our new home!
