"The idea with the bicycle chain proved to be a success."

This was how company founder Johann Winklhofer casually referred to the launch of his first product, a high-performance precision chain bearing the J.W.I.S. (Joh. Winklhofer & S”hne) brand. What began with a humble bicycle chain rapidly grew into a successful family business, and eventually into the Iwis Group, a global technology leader in high-quality chain solutions.

Since they primarily relate to drive and control functions, the products they make literally help to move the world. They still adhere to the values that have motivated this family firm from the outset: combining the best of tradition and innovation to create quality and precision. 100% repeatability across 30 million parts manufactured each day - that's one big challenge they daily embrace anew with enthusiasm.

Working as a team, they are constantly developing new standard and system solutions. And their dedication as a systems supplier has propelled them right to the top of the world league. What is more, by optimizing the use of chain systems to maximize reductions in CO2 emissions, their efforts are also benefiting the environment. Their goal is perfection - nothing more and nothing less.

Their team of over 1,000 employees working at over 20 sites around the world. These highly skilled people in their three engine systems, drive systems and agrisystems divisions work on developing and optimizing both production and quality assurance for their JWIS, EUROCHAIN, ELITE, FLEXON and ecoplus brands to deliver solutions that truly move the world.
