OVALO GmbH was founded in Limburg at the beginning of 2006 to develop and industrialize drive units and gears for mass production according to the tried and tested strain wave gear principle.

Already in the middle of 2006 the first serial order could be successfully acquired. Following the signing of the contract an automotive-compliant production plant could be installed and launched successfully in the middle of 2007.

As a further development of the company the first complete actuator manufactured by OVALO consisting of actuator and servo motor as well as sensor system, brake assembly and ECU for a super imposed steering system was developed and successfully introduced in the project at the beginning of 2008.

The new OVALO plant built in 2009 offers an adequate infrastructure enabling a further growth for our customers in the automotive area. It has been planned for a long-term future development and offers a potential production area of up to 20.000 qm².

Beginning 2010 certification according to ISO 9001 and TS 16949 had been successfully achieved. OVALO will continually increase the infrastructure as well as the available processes and methods also in the future enabling us to serve further application areas in the automotive industry.

Since the beginning of 2014 adcos GmbH as a cross-industry specialist and development partner for software and hardware solutions in the area of mechatronic systems has become a subsidiary of OVALO GmbH.

In March 2017 OVALO has become part of Nabtesco Corporation Tokyo. Nabtesco is world market leader in the manufacture of precision gears for robots and successfully established as a supplier in the area of railway, automotive and aerospace industries. OVALO in Limburg is planned to be the central development and manufacturing site in Europe.

Today OVALO develops customer-specific actuator systems and is engaged in TIER-1 projects together with OEM’s. Our innovative technology and our high-quality products perfectly complement with the portfolio and the markets of Nabtesco Corporation.
