IFA Powertrain GmbH & Co. KG

IFA Powertrain GmbH & Co. KG is a direct supplier of front and rear drive shafts and components for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.


At our factory in Haldensleben, 1.200 employees manufacture more than 2.5 million drive shafts per year for rear and four-wheel drive models plus more than 1.2 million fixed joints, plunging joints, and constant velocity joints (CVJ). The company is the market leader for propeller shafts in Europe.


IFA Powertrain GmbH & Co. KG is proud of its enormous innovation potential. For example, we have managed to reduce the number of parts in a propeller shaft and simplify its assembly using a slip-in connection.


IFA Powertrain GmbH & Co. KG designed and produced the world’s most intricate and complex drive shaft for the VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne,. Due to very low displacement forces, the shaft can constantly and consistently deliver the maximum torque. The credit for this success goes to our highly trained and motivated staff, as well as one of the world’s most advanced production lines for propeller shafts.
