RWG is a company with a rich history located in Höchstadt /Aisch in Middle Franconia. Since 2002, it has been an independent subsidiary of the American KAMAN Corporation within the Aerospace – Specialty Bearings & Engineered Products division. RWG Germany GmbH is a renowned and growing manufacturer of precision and high-quality aircraft bearings. Its customers include all well-known manufacturers in the aerospace industry, as well as those in motorsports and mechanical engineering. The secret to its success lies not only in its high quality and innovation but also in its strong customer orientation and the dedicated team of more than 200 employees.

RWG Germany GmbH was originally founded in 1943 under the name “Frankenjura Industrie GmbH” and was engaged in the reconditioning of bearings for the automotive and machinery industries. The company grew at its Erlangen location to employ around 200 people.

In the 50th year of its existence, in May 1993, Frankenjura had to close due to economic difficulties. A former employee, Robert Wirth, purchased manufacturing machines from the assets and began bearing production in September 1993 with twelve employees at the same location. The company was now called Robert Wirth Gesellschaft mbH (RWG). In 2002, due to health issues, Robert Wirth decided to sell the company to Kaman Corporation. Kaman Corp. was founded in 1945 by Charles H. Kaman in Bloomfield, Connecticut, USA, where the company’s headquarters is still located today. As a result, RWG received an international designation and was renamed “RWG Germany GmbH.” The KAMAN Corporation now employs approximately 4,900 people at more than 200 locations. The KAMAN Corporation was listed on the New York Stock Exchange until it has been acquired by a private US equity in April 2024.
