Kumera Norgear – 50 years anniversery

This year, Kumera Norgear celebrates 50 years in the industry. Although our roots date back 100 years, it was 50 years ago that three maritime companies moved together from Oslo to Sandefjord – a city best known for its whaling industry - and created what we today know as Kumera Norgear. With the sea, and marine and shipping industries nearby, this was the beginning of a successful journey for Kumera Norgear – a driving force within mechanical power transmissions.

Since 1965, Kumera Norgear has designed, developed and manufactured marine power transmissions for customers across the globe. In 1979, Kumera Norgear became a member of the Kumera Corporation, a leading supplier of industrial and marine mechanical power transmissions and services since 1945.

Today, Kumera Norgear heads the Marine Transmission Division and is part of the Power Transmissions Group of Kumera, responsible for the design, development, manufacturing, service and aftersales of marine transmissions on a global basis. As part of a global company, we offer corporate units in Finland, Norway, Austria and China, with worldwide 24/7 service and support by certified partners and agents across the globe. Our in-house capabilities include foundries, steel fabrication plants, several specialist gear-cutting and case-hardening facilities, as well as R&D centres in Finland, Austria and Norway.
