About IMS Gear

More than 150 years ago, IMS Gear began as subcontractor for precision components for the regional clock and watch industry. Even in those days, the special tools needed for gearing clock and watch components were manufactured in-house. This core competence lives until today and is the foundation for the innovative gear solutions which gained considerable commercial significance some 50 years ago.
