Corporate History



Spitznagel GmbH was founded by Rudolf Spitznagel in Tuttlingen, Germany, to manufacture welding transformers.



We began producing small transformers, which soon developed into our core business.


We were one of the first manufacturers to launch a standard program of small cast transformers.


The available production area was no longer large enough. For this reason we relocated to a new building
in Balgheim with a production area of approx. 750 m².


We founded the trading company ACI Inc. in California to develop the American market for small transformers.


Due to capacity constraints, Spitznagel relocated to new premises in Tuningen. This time the production
area expanded to approx. 2500 m².


Our founder’s son, Ralph Spitznagel, was appointed to the Executive Board, paving the way for the company
to pass to the second generation.
