42 years HAM Precision Schwendi-Hörenhausen...
In its 44th business year HAM – Hartmetallwerkzeugfabrik Andreas Maier GmbH experienced a stroke of fate with the untimely and unexpected passing away of the widely respected company owner and founder, Dipl. Ing. Andreas Maier, in June 2013.
The new management team supporting his son-in-law, Günter Eberle was extended to include Andreas Maier’s Daughter, Petra Eberle and his son, Andreas Marcus Maier in November 2013. Thus the family company is now run by the second generation.
The complete middle and top management levels have also been reorganized. This new organization was presented to the auditors in time for the scheduled audits according to ISO 9001 VDA 6.4 and EN IOS 13485 (medical audit). The relevant certificates were granted without limitations after four audit days.
Overall the business year 2013 was a positive one and the same applies to the fair EMO in Hanover and the fair Productronica in Munich
Highlights such as the once again received “Preferred Supplier” award for the tool section from our key customer Bosh Group added to the success of the well-attended fairs.
The sales cooperation in the field of printed circuit boards with Union Tool, based both on the sales and technical sides, already established in 2011, was showcased at the Productronica during the jointly designed fair presentation. The successful ongoing relationship has resulted in the qualification of mutual products and the overall good development allows us to look optimistically into the future.
The HAM dental and medical sector, founded a few years ago as a further mainstay has become well-established and also performed favorably during 2013.
Since January 2014, our subsidiary HAM Swiss is available for customers as a sole distributor. The manufacturing process has been successfully integrated in the main plant.
With the start of a large production building according to ultramodern standard in Hörenhausen, this facility will become the central manufacturing plant for all precision tools in solid carbide, poly-crystalline diamonds, cermet’s and other materials primarily used to the automotive and supply in-modern machinery and a precise production flow are expected to offer shorter delivery times to the customers.
During the past years, HAM has proven to be an all-round supplier of initial equipment for projects in all fields. Follow-up orders and new projects have resulted from well-run project processing.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude in out customers and suppliers, as well as our banks, the community Schwendi and all supporting institutions for their strong cooperation and longstanding loyalty.
