IMK Engineering: Unternehmen


IMK engineering GmbH

The IMK engineerung GmbH has been founded in 1990 by 3 former managers of the development department of the SDAG Wismut. Upon the founding of the company, the aim was to offer support and resources as a partner in developing  new products for industry. 

From the beginning on the focus was on R&D for special vehicles, machines and plants for construction and mining machines, automotive industry as well as general machine construction.
The company location at this time in Frankenberg was the basis for development and production of new products for forestry and construction. 

The relation to the Saxon tradition and competence in the automotive industry was established in 2002 by IMK engineering GmbH purchasing the rights to the trademark "FRAMO". The FRAMO had been connected to the vehicle manufacturers in Frankenberg and Hainichen since 1926 which had been co-founded by Rasmussen. In the period from 1926 to 1957 transport vehicles and motor cycle parts were produced. This tradition continued with the production of the light weight trucks BARKAS from 1957 to 1990. The logo of the former Frankenberger Motorenwerke has now become part of the CI of IMK engineering GmbH. 
From 2003 a continous growth of the IMK engineering GmbH lead to technical calculation and electric planning services.  

Since 2005, the company shall be responsible for engineering projects in addition to increasing the supply of components and special equipment, so the sales could be increased substantially especially in 2009.

Today, IMK works on complex projects for clients in Europe, Asia and Africa and is able, to offer engineering with competent staff from mechanical 3D-Design, engineering calculations using the latest methods up to complete e-projects and the supply of prototype and pre-series.

2018 the company moved into the new built headquarter at the Jagdschänkenstraße in Chemnitz/South. So all capacities are now bundled and IMK with its 40 employees is able to realize even bigger, more complex projects in an effective way for our customers.
