Geislinger was founded 1958 by Leonhard Geislinger as an engineering office. Driven by inventive spirit, the Geislinger coupling was developed for a thermo pneumatic locomotive. Leonhard Roman Geislinger, Leonhard Geislinger's son, realized the potential of the Geislinger Coupling with its hydrodynamic damping properties. From this day on, the success story of the company took its course.

Over the decades, Geislinger has developed a huge number of innovative product solutions. In addition to steel-based dampers and couplings, products based on composite material have become a more and more important part of the Geislinger product portfolio. Besides a constant increase in engine applications, Geislinger has a strong focus on wind power applications. To strengthen the position in the wind power market, Geislinger has invested in R&D and in its production plants for these applications. This includes new production lines as well as state of the art machinery, which guarantees innovative and high-quality products. This can also be seen in a variety of investments in development and state of the art machinery as well as constant expansion of all Geislinger locations in Austria, the U.S., China, Japan and South Korea.
