The company was founded in spring 1974 by Lothar Herrmann, Gotthold Schur and Karl-Heinz Wenzelburger as a joint partnership. Based in Riederich near Stuttgart, the company started out with six employees, producing and developing single-fluted gun drills with brazed drivers. It was transformed into a limited company with its present name in 1976.
The results achieved by single-fluted gun drills, especially in series production meant that the usual finishing via counterboring or reaming was no longer necessary. No other tool of the day was capable of producing bores of comparable quality in a single pass. This was a crucial leading edge in times of rocketing industrial demand for high-precision deep-hole drilling.
Today, we develop and manufacture tools to satisfy our customers’ deep-hole drilling tasks. Our mission is to find the most cost-effective solution for every customer and to continuously develop it. We rely on the expertise, commitment and creativity of our employees, and innovative advanced technologies to always keep a step ahead. We aim to inspire our customers’ enthusiasm to match our own.
Our guiding principle is: Always improving! This determination to constantly improve has made us what we are today.
Our benchmark is satisfied customers; it is on them that our future success hinges. We are committed to absolute quality in production and service.
