About us

Company details

For more than 30 years we have been supplying hot-air devices for professional requirements to virtually all the countries of the world.

Out of the town that has been known for several centuries for the manufacture of sharp blades, knives and scissors, we have been supplying hot-air devices for professional requirements to virtually all the countries of the world for the past 30 years.

At our production site located on Freiheitstrasse, we carry out the final assembly of our devices and machines, attaching greatest importance to the high-quality processing and assembly of our welding torches, automatic welding machines, air heaters and accessories.

As our equipment and machines may partly be exposed to extreme permanent loads during their use in industry and trade, we constantly carry out inspections and tests during the manufacturing process. This is a guarantee for satisfied customers and reliable equipment.

n the course of the years, we have been able to continuously enhance and improve our range, so that today we can present a perfected product range to our customers worldwide. In addition, we endeavour to not only offer the familiar range, but to also provide advice and assistance to our customers and to lend them our support for the development of special designs.

Needless to say, the final assembly premises gradually became very cramped due to the constantly expanding product range. But thanks to a fortunate coincidence, we were offered the opportunity to purchase the adjoining site, where we were able to build a new, modern production hall in the course of 2002. This expansion will help us to ensure that in future too, our company can remain at the internationally known location of Solingen.
