In 2022, Elsner & Jyrch GmbH was founded by Alfred Jyrch and Roman Elsner as a spin-off of the Chair of Machine Tools Development and Adaptive Controls at TU Dresden within the framework of an EXIST Business Start-up Grant by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

Alfred and Roman invented the Double Ratchet System - a new type of bicycle freewheel. With Alfred's know-how from developing gears and transmissions, and Roman's experience in manufacturing technologies, the founders decided to take the complete value chain into their own hands and set up their own CNC production. The ambition is to combine the highest manufacturing quality with the most productive manufacturing technologies to produce high-end and cost-efficient products - Made in Germany.

In addition to producing for its own brand QVIST, Elsner & Jyrch GmbH provides its expertise in manufacturing and development to other companies. We love to master new challenges and to immerse ourselves in new tasks. We are a young and dynamic team that can manufacture even small quantities flexibly and cost-efficiently. We can accompany our customers through the complete process from prototype development to series production.
