We turn vision into reality

IFA in Haldensleben was founded in 1959 in the former German Democratic Republic, to supply propeller shafts to East German industry. After the fall of the Berlin wall, Heinrich von Nathusius privatized the firm. By 2017 it was the second largest propeller shaft producer in the world with 3 000 associates on three continents.

Our vision is to become a Top 100 supplier to the automotive industry worldwide.

IFA is committed to the following principles

  • We are a value-based company.
  • We invest in our associates.
  • We convince our customers of our innovations.
  • We are cost and technology leader.
  • Customer satisfaction is the goal of our quality management.
  • We are a system supplier to the leading car makers.
  • We are engaged locally and succeed globally.


We never lose sight of the essence:
Enthusiastic associates are at the center of our success.
