And we do this in a place which has traditionally been the home of precision mechanics and machine tools. All in all, these are the best possible prerequisites. They are the reasons why we enjoy a leading position today as a partner to numerous key industries. From large complex components to the smallest components in the high-tech area. From medicine to auto racing. We lead the way!

Automated die machining boosts manufacturing capacity /ins With its standardisation strategy and the C 22 UP machining centre from Hermle, the tool and mould making division of the WMF Group has managed to streamline die and tool production processes, thereby creating the scope for services for external customers.
From filing to precision milling /ins HETEC’s claim of "Performance is not a matter of chance" exactly expresses the philosophy and strategy of the machining services supplier from Breidenbach! And that philosophy was born out of Friedhelm Herhaus' experience: For too long he felt hampered in his desire to put his specialist knowledge and skill to practical use and to the customer’s benefit. In such cases there is only one way forward: setting up one’s own operation. Together with his brother Günter Herhaus, he founded HETEC OHG, originally in Bad Laasphe. As the scope of the business grew, brother Werner Herhaus joined the company as well, and in 2000 the next milestone was reached with the founding of HETEC GmbH.
