I.M.A. - your competent partner for industrial engines, Gas engines, OEM-products and air conditioning


The company I.M.A. is internationally renowned as a competent partner for industrial engines, motor accessories, spare parts, OEM-products and air conditioning systems.

The company was founded in April 1989 by Hans-Dieter Gröschler who brought 15 years of experience with Ford industrial engines into the business. To the distribution of Ford and New Holland industrial engines, motor accessories, spare parts and Ford OEM-products a new business division was added already in 1993 with the distribution of retrofit air conditioning systems for agricultural and forestry vehicles.

In the years 1993 to 1997 the success of the company was strikingly confirmed. The turnover was growing steadily, new products were added to the portfolio and the number of our employees doubled. In 1997 the sale of Kubota engines is successfully taken up. At the end of 1999 the company relocates from the old location Herford to the newly build premises in Leopoldshöhe. The modern production facilities and warehouse and optimised office and administration premises create the basis for the continuing growth of the enterprise. In the middle of 2001 we expanded our range of products again. Additionally to the distribution of retrofit air conditioning systems for agricultural and forestry machinery the area of construction vehicles is now covered as well. Since 2011 we also offer I.M.A.-LPG and Natural Gas Engines and also Liebherr Diesel- and LPG and Natural Gas Engines. In the future we will continue to venture into new areas of business to ensure the best possible satisfaction of our customers. This is also warranted by ISO-Certification according to ISO 9001:2015.

As an internationally operating company we are delivering a wide range of new and exchange petrol, diesel or gas powered engines of the above mentioned manufacturers. The engines are being used in many various industrial applications in different areas. Some are for example used by our well-known customers in machines and vehicles in the agricultural and forestry area or the construction industry, for cleaning vehicles, for stationary or mobile electric generators or in combined heat and power units (CHP) and for many other purposes.
Furthermore we offer a wide product range "all around the industrial engine", supplying spare parts and accessories.

As a Ford-Power-Products- und Ford-Component-Sales dealer we can offer you not only the Ford Industrial Engines but also all the products of the Ford automobile manufacturing division as OEM-Parts for the original equipment market or for industrial appropriation. A fresh air nozzle from a car can also be used as a fan outlet on a sun bed. Why develop your own components, when Ford could already have done it for you?

But not only our engines, OEM-parts and spare parts program well regarded across Europe but also our range of retrofit air conditioning systems for vehicles in various areas of application.
