Granite Devices

Purchasing Specialist

Published on 01.09.2021

Granite Devices is a group of passionate engineers who started by developing something completely different – advanced servo motor drives for demanding industrial use around the globe.

Succeeding in that, we noticed that our industrial-grade technology can be used to build the most accurate and reliable force feedback controllers for sim racing. And that was the beginning of Simucube.

We believe that behind every successful racer is a dedicated tech team. So when you have a passion for serious sim racing, we have a passion in building the best possible gear for that.
