Keeping things moving.

Keeping things moving.

Company positioning presents BRECO Antriebstechnik Breher GmbH & Co. KG, manufacturer of BRECO® and BRECOFLEX® timing belts, with new challenges which we are tackling head on.

Movement is not something that just happens. We also consider movement to be a prerequisite for the development of solutions that meet future requirements. Only by moving forward can we develop the best possible solutions and offer them to our customers.

In our role as the most innovative producer worldwide in the field of polyurethane timing belt technology, we not only have to strive for innovation and optimum value-for-money, but also take seriously our responsibility to our employees and the environment in which we live.

Optimal working conditions for our employees, management of resources, careful use of raw materials and the disposal of residual material in compliance with the regulations form the basis for our high-quality and functionally reliable products.

Timing belts and pulleys made by BRECO are the result of all these efforts. Put us to the test - we look forward to your challenges.


Movement from Westphalia.

The name BRECO became synonymous with polyurethane timing belts resulting from years of experience in the field of thermoplastic polyurethane, the development of BRECO® and BRECOFLEX® manufacturing processes and their application.

Over 250 employees in Porta Westfalica, located between Bielefeld and Hanover, produce timing belts, transport V-belts, flat and special belts together with pulleys and associated components. One strong point is the development and production of special belts for the most varied fields of application. The large number of belt coatings and the most varied shape of flights open up an extremely broad field of application for BRECO® and BRECOFLEX® timing belts.

The translation of Porta Westfalica is "The gate to Westphalia". Seen in the opposite direction, it also means the door to the world. Today, on a worldwide scale, BRECO® and BRECOFLEX® timing belts are synonymous with quality - quality made in Germany.
