"Lockdrives is headquartered in Germany and has been a local family business for more than 175 years. The current owner, Mr. Frank Lock, is the company's fifth generation. We have branch offices in China, the United States, and the Netherlands, which can provide fast and convenient services to customers all over the world," said Shi Jin, head of Lockdrives China.
Headquarters in Ertingen, Germany
Professional - focus on the drive system
"We only focus on drive system solutions, which allows our engineers to focus more on helping horticulture with ventilation, shading, and insulation issues, as well as other lifting and conditioning tasks. Our service scope covers various types of horticultural projects, including glass and plastic greenhouses, and is further subdivided into fully open roof greenhouses, Venlo greenhouses, scientific research and horticultural centers, mobile greenhouses, and others. In addition, some large commercial exhibition centers and art galleries also use our drive products. " Manager Shi said.
"Compared with the traditional limit switch, the efficiency becomes lower with the accumulation of use time (the elastic coefficient changes). Lockdrives uses a unique mechanical gear limit switch, which is very practical and durable and can be adjusted manually by tools without electricity."
High Precision Mechanical Limit Switch
"The window can be prevented from closing suddenly during the customer's commissioning process, thanks to the self-locking function of our twin-turbo worm-drive design, which greatly improves safety. In addition, we also set up overload protection to prevent the motor from being burned by external objects involved in the working process. Our geared motors of the EWA series are perfectly suitable for installation at various angles and are equipped with bleed bolts in each position facing upwards. The horticultural industry is often challenged by harsh environments like heat or cold. Our products can work from -40°C to +85°C and maintain perfect performance," adds Manager Shi.
Unique twin-turbo worm-drive design
Reliability - 100% Original Made in Germany
"Lockdrives' products are 100% made in Germany, with excellent quality and almost no maintenance problems. For example, our project in Lanzhou was built by a Spanish greenhouse company in 2000. After 22 years, the greenhouse can still be used today."

"Not to mention the oldest Lock motor that we have found and still works. The motor was installed in 1963 and used for 59 years, fully reflecting German values. A one-time investment, a lifetime use!"

"The RMA Tube Motor is our star product in China, with thousands of units sold last year, mainly used for side-winding ventilation and insulation systems in greenhouses. The product has a compact design and a 22-turn precision limit switch."
Lock's star product
"In China, we maintain a very close relationship with greenhouse companies and design institutes to assist them in design and installation guidance. At the same time, we also pay close attention to the user experience of end the consumer, as well as to the combination of theory and practice. With the help of a rich and reliable product portfolio and modular applications, we can perfectly solve most of the pain points in the drive industry in the market. While delivering the value, we firmly believe in the role of the invisible hand of the market, and customers will naturally understand it after a period of time as well."
"The Chinese market is a fast-growing market, and the future industry prospects are enormous. The German headquarters attaches great importance to it. Since the establishment of the Nanjing branch in 2017, our domestic team has continued to expand. While benefiting from the Chinese market, we also don’t forget to invest to ensure the improvement of our service quality.”
"At present, we have carried out many projects in China, such as Kashgar in Xinjiang, Yancheng in Jiangsu, Hefei in Anhui, Sunqiao in Shanghai, Lanzhou in Gansu, Zhengzhou in Henan, Rizhao in Shandong, Kunming in Yunnan, Beijing and other places where our products are. Next, we will also present more projects in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Shandong, Yunnan, and other places." Manager Shi concluded.
