About Us

Märkisches Werk (MWH) is the global market leader in the development, production and remanufacturing of cylinder head systems and components for large-bore, combustion engines as well as high-performance racing engines.

We constantly innovate and refine our technology, enabling you to upgrade your engine performance so you can move your business forward. That’s one reason why over 90% of the world’s large-bore engine builders for vessels, power generation plants, locomotives and high-performance racing applications have partnered with us for decades. From design through manufacturing to remanufacturing, MWH products and services are synonymous with quality, efficiency, performance and sustainability — all the qualities you expect from “Made in Germany.”

Our Brand Vision

OVERCOME THE LIMITS OF YOUR ENGINE PERFORMANCE

Energy demand in all aspects of life is changing. The world needs solutions to significantly reduce climate-damaging emissions, improve engine efficiencies and utilize alternative fuel sources.

Time is running out. In order to achieve the Paris climate goals of 2015, it is essential to minimize the impact of fossil fuels and implement a technology mix with application-specific propulsion solutions to reduce CO2 emissions. Existing concepts are reaching their limits.

Improved efficiency leads to lower fuel consumption and emissions from diesel and gas engines. Renewable fuels such as hydrogen, power-to-gas or power-to-liquid products are additional approaches to achieving climate goals.

As the specialist developing and manufacturing ​​highly stressed engine components, MWH has the ability to expand the limits of the combustion process in new power systems, while minimizing harmful wear.  Simply put “Your Engine. Our Ingenuity.”

Our Values

AN INDEPENDENT, FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY FOR GENERATIONS

For MWH, being a family business means the obligation to create opportunities for future generations of employees, customers and shareholders through continuous development. All decisions and activities 

must meet our sustainability and long-term vision. Our company values guide us on a path to a successful future as an independent family-owned company.

Heritage

TRADITION AND CHANGE FOR OVER 160 YEARS

The history of Märkisches Werk is interconnected with iron processing development in the Märkisches Sauerland region.

A Smithery serving the local Knight and his court grew into a metal crafts business before transitioning to a larger industrial enterprise in 1859. At that time, locks, vices and bicycle parts for local and even American customers were produced in the Haus Heide factory. We still export high quality products to America to this day!

In the 1950's, our product range reflected the focus of industrial development in Germany. During that time, engine building, the emerging automotive and petroleum industries experienced unparalleled growth. Participation in these industries led us to specialize in the development and manufacturing of valve train systems for large bore combustion engines. 

The company’s 160-year history shows how our ongoing respect for tradition, combined with a commitment to constantly learn, change and grow, can build stronger, lasting relationships with our customers.

Product Leadership

COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE

Our primary focus is on the next generation of highly efficient engines, where we are challenged by:

  • higher combustion temperatures
  • higher combustion pressures
  • renewable fuels or lower combustion residuals

Our developments may increase conventional components limits by material-related designs, application specific coatings or novel production processes.

Customer Driven

FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

"What we value most from MWH is product quality and their willingness to share knowledge and develop solutions together."

UNDERSTANDING CUSTOMER NEEDS

Each engine is designed with a specific set of goals in mind.  Requirements vary, depending on application and specific operating conditions.

It is part of every MWH engineer’s job to identify and completely understand the specific problem before creating solutions.

The technical specifications for the components and their pairings must be linked to a cost-optimal production or overhauling process. We are driven to develop the innovative and unique solutions you need.
