ALWAYS ONE STEP AHEAD
August Häussermann founded the company Lamellen und Kupplungsbau August Häussermann (LuK) in Esslingen between Weinbergen and Neckar 95 years ago. The mechanical engineer, and former assistant to Robert Bosch, recognized the market of the future in the fledgling automotive industry; he wanted to play a decisive role in turning the wheel here.
Just a few years later, his son, Dr. Kurt Häussermann, developed the first European disc spring clutch, thus instantly revolutionizing the driving comfort of the automobile. Thanks to innovative process optimization and entrepreneurial skill, Ingo Häussermann Senior, the founder’s grandson, was able to firmly establish the family-run company’s precision disc springs in the high-end segment of the automotive industry and to develop the company HÄUSSERMANN into the sole supplier of numerous international construction and agricultural machinery as well as automotive manufacturers and first-tiers.
