INNOVATION IS A TRADITION
The story of OTT-JAKOB started in 1873, when Albert Ott founded an institute of mathematics and mechanics in Kempten. Taking part in the world’s fairs in Melbourne in 1880 and Chicago in 1893, Albert Ott was ahead of his time in demonstrating that opening up global markets was a key factor of sustainable growth. In 1974 the company developed the first power drawbar, and new chapters have been added to its success story ever since.
