In West Germany August Lichte set up a small Engineering Office with former Jumo engine engineers at Essen in 1954 and started design work under the former Junkers Name.

Initial work was done on the design of small Diesel two stroke engine. The Group also studied several engine component designs. No further Infos about the early activities. In 1957 the Junkers Engineering Office was sold to Heinkel and Messerschmitt and the Team was transfered to Heinkel in Stuttgart.
