More than 120 Years of Experience
In 1890, the company W. Lahmeyer &Co was founded in Frankfurt am Main by Wilhelm Lahmeyer, an entrepreneur with great vision for the capabilities in the emerging electrical industry. His inventions and functional discoveries marked the way of this triumphal success. The Lahmeyer engineers succeeded in producing pioneering innovations in the design and construction of power stations as well as power transmission and distribution facilities.

Today, engineers, natural scientists and economic experts from over 30 disciplines are working together using the state-of-the-art technologies in the same tradition of those pioneers.
