About us

KTR U.K. Ltd

With over 50 years of experience, KTR Couplings Ltd are well equipped to find cost effective solutions for all power transmission needs.

Not only do we offer standard couplings, we also provide solutions for your required technical specifications by modifying stock parts or producing prototypes for bespoke situations.

In addition, we are able to provide a manufacturing base for customer's steel tank requirements, either standard off the shelf or bespoke tanks to suit individual designs.

KTR Kupplungstechnik GmbH established its UK sales organization as a joint-venture company in 1999. Its initial focus was on the industrial market in the UK and Ireland selling industrial couplings and hydraulic components.

KTR Couplings was founded in 2003 as a fully owned UK subsidiary to develop a larger market share and to provide a better service to its existing and future customer base.
