About us

ATM Tornau Motoren GmbH & Co. KG - more than 30 years of expertise

Tornau Motoren was founded in 1991 by Axel Tornau in 23758 Jahnshof, Schleswig-Holstein. They started out repairing cars and overhauling internal combustion engines.

By 1997, the company had already outgrown their original setting and moved to a new location at the commercial park Heidekamp 2, where new premises were purpose-built to their requirements, including two auto hoists. In the following years, the company kept expanding their premises, including the addition of administration offices. The original team was composed of four employees, who still work for the company today.

In 2002, Tornau Motoren commenced selling their engines online. With the development of this new channel of distribution and the establishment of business cooperations, the sale of new and overhauled engines became their main line of business.

In 2007, Tornau Motoren entered the international market and conducted business with North and South America. Responding to high demand, the production range was expanded to include utility vehicle and industrial engines. The sale of engine parts was increasingly conducted online.

In 2015, it finally happened: the company, meanwhile 27 employees strong, moved into new premises in Oldenburg, Schleswig-Holstein. This added 4,000 sqm to the 900 sqm at Jahnshof. The company was now retaining a stock of more than 1,700 engines and, for the first time, shipped over 1,000 engines that year.

2019 Georg Barton becomes the new CEO and partner of Tornau Motoren e.K. At the same time, the company is rebranded ATM Tornau Motoren GmbH & Co. KG.

2020 ATM Tornau Motoren GmbH & C. KG is fully digitized. Orders, storage and shipping are all processed by cloud. This improves and speeds up the service for more than 50,000 satisfied customers all over the world.
