About us

MOTORTECH GmbH was founded in 1988 in Celle near Hanover. Initially it was just a service and trade enterprise, which specialized in engine replacement parts and stationary gas engine accessories.

Today, the company is among the most efficient system suppliers in this industry and offers customers throughout the world a complete product range for all popular gas engines. For all brands.  For all types of gas.

A number of our own developments round off the MOTORTECH range and provide increased operational safety, better environmental impact, longer intervals between maintenance, a longer overall life, and thus higher engine cost-effectiveness.

Over 250 employees throughout the world spend day after day pursuing just one aim: not just fulfilling our customers’ expectations but surpassing them.
