...trical engineering industry, medical and dental industry, mechanical and apparatus engineering as well as metal-, synthetic material- and cast-working industry have been trusting in our capability.

At the moment we have about 90 employees and export worldwide. As an owner-managed family business with decades of experience, we are a reliable and innovative partner. The whole enterprise operates with an effective, networking ERP-system. All departments in technics and administration have access to this system. The integration of a CAD/CAM-system allows to transfer 2D- und 3D-construction data online to the machines - this increases flexibility and eliminates fault sources.

All departments are working target-oriented, so that we can profit from synergy effects. The quality management system is certificated according to DIN EN ISO 9001, DIN EN ISO 13485 (medical) and DIN EN ISO 14001 (environment). The company's competence for innovation is reflected by a huge number of commercial trademark rights. The know-how we bring to your projects is not in textbooks, it is through our developed long-standing subject-specific activities and internalized. Therefore our know-how is more than a sum of separated skills and techniques.

Our product dedication as well as the high proportion of in-house production enable us to offer an express service (deli...

We are actively involved in the developments in the conflict that exists between humans and technology.

In order to maintain and develop our operating efficiency, we invest in the modernisation of our production facilities and the training of our staff. Furthermore we are a verified training company for technical and commercial jobs.

As a successful family-run, owner-managed enterprise, we are committed to our location, maintain business values like credibility, trust and reliability, align our processes with the requirements of our customers and regard workforce as a competitive advantage and not as an expense.


Development, production and marketing in our locations in Höfen and Bad Wildbad offer you the targeted combination of the required know-how.

Development, surpassing the expectations we already had.
Production, having the neccesary manufacturing depth and production width at one's disposal and acting flexibly and demand-orientedly.
Marketing, listening to you very carefully and advising you competently.

All of this combined with decades of experience and the ability to bring these skills together at one ta...

We are ready when the market asks for new solutions and are ready to meet the constantly growing demands of our customers. We contribute our enthusiasm and expertise to many industry-specific and interdisciplinary working groups and cross-border networks, e.g. SeniorPRO - Innovations for self-determined ageing.

In the selection of our longstanding and mostly contract-related suppliers we regard in addition to professional competences also their respectability and particularly pay attention to what becomes more and more important for our customers: no transferring of know-how but using the already existing knowledge!

Innovation means for us the base for enhancing our German location to accomplish resolutely and successfully technological and creative peak power.
But what does the word "innovation" mean?

The inflationary disposal of the word "innovation" makes us thinking more about what it originally stands for. The word "innovation" is of Latin origin and means change, reformation... For us, the benefit of innovation increased by goal-oriented change and the acceptance of a developed product on the market by the customer are the scales of "innovation".

Due to the successful cooperation of development, production and sales, innovation becomes a requested long-term and gainful product and also the reason to make innovation a part of our company profile. Connected with the necessary corporate courage, the factor innovative ability restores us to a leading position in economically bad and good times.


Innovation starts in the head!

Thereby, our aims are especially the close connection of all suppliers to the company, the creation of a foundation of trust and the durable cooperation with efficient, innovative suppliers.

  • Supplier Information
  • Classifications
  • Supplier's declarations
  • Initial sample delivery and test reports

At the beginning of a new supplier relationship usually sample deliveries are made that have to undergo a special receiving inspection.
