MANY THANKS for 25 years
Andreas Westhoff has been working at our company since the 1st of July 1994. We would like to congratulate our jubilarian and wish him all the best for the future.
Just like the company, the tasks which Andreas Westhoff (50) has had to face have also altered during the past 25 years. The then 25 year old started at the company as a design engineer on the 1st of July 1994. Today he has now been in charge of our design department for over nine years.
In the beginning Andreas Westhoff developed various devices and jigs for the field of special mechanical engineering. His initial designs included belt welding devices, quadruple drill units as well as a drilling plant for railway sleepers. In the course of time, the first production line and assembly line were subsequently implemented and the development of these was strongly influenced by him.
The CEO´s Norbert and Daniel Hüttenhölscher, as well as the entire team, would hereby like to thank Andreas Westhoff for his loyalty, his commitment and his solidarity with the company. Everyone continues to hope for an ongoing, pleasant collaboration and we all wish the jubilarian all the very best for the future.
Impressions from the LIGNA 2019
We have just returned from five high-octane days exhibiting our products at the sensational LIGNA trade fair. We spent a great deal of time explaining so many things to so many interesting and interested people. We engaged in endless, lively discussions, all of which were punctuated by lots of laughter. Here are some of these striking impressions.
There was so much going on all over the 300 square metres of our stand. One of the innovations that we showcased was our further development of the tried-and-tested pre-assembly press for carcases, which follows "the horizontal concept". Daniel Hüttenhölscher explains enthusiastically: "Unlike earlier models, the holding arms can now be implemented more flexibly and thus offer an even greater wealth of possibilities." Our robot cell set the stand jumping, too: a research project taken from the world of robot technology, which is supported by the Central Innovation Programme for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises, promoted by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and carried out by the Technical University of Dresden. This project is delving into the possibility of mounting fittings by way of a robot application and then gluing them using induction techniques.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the LIGNA 2019. And we wish to extend our warmest thanks to all those who visited us, who showed interest in our brand of technology and who enriched the whole experience for us with their interesting conversations and lively discussions.
START OF ASSEMBLY at The Verl Factory
Since the beginning of April 2018, we now have our third production location: We will assemble plant, systems and machinery at our Verl factory on Österwieher Straße 160.
We are ready to go! For several months now, planning and preparations have been underway for the start of assembly at the Verl factory - in the halls of the former Hartkämper-Stahlbau company. The initial assembly work will now commence on more than 3,800 square metres of hall space.
“In order to set up our machinery, plants and systems, we need more and more assembly space, which is why we have decided to expand our capacities with a third location”, says CEO Daniel Hüttenhölscher, who is very pleased to have found a suitable workshop so close to the main factory at the right time.
“The really nice, bright hall is ideal for us. It is equipped with numerous cranes and, due to its length, we can assemble and test our machinery in one piece when required.”
The main factory continues to be at the company location at Grasweg 47 in Verl-Bornholte. This includes, among others, the administration, design, CNC production as well as work preparation. In addition, just as in the new Verl factory and the “SHS Factory” location (Hellweg 112-120 in Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock), machinery, plants and systems will continue to be set up and commissioned here.
The address of the new “Verl Factory” location: Österwieher Str. 160, 33415 Verl. Parking spaces as well as the entrance are located at the rear side of the hall, therefore the approach is executed via Sinnerbrinksweg.
