Hennig CZ s.r.o, Hennig Production Prague, was founded by Hennig GmbH, the majority interest holder, in partnership with Electromechnik, Uvaly. The new partnership opened for business with 17 employees.
A new facility was rented to produce Telescopic Steel Covers, and was remodeled to accommodate the special requirements of the business. In August, the company name was changed from “Hennig Production Prague, s.r.o.” to “Hennig CZ s.r.o”. During 1999, the number of employees increased to 37, and Hennig GmbH gradually increased their percent of ownership to 100%.
When the Hennig Group was restructured in 2003, Hennig CZ s.r.o. was transferred to the Hennig Holding GmbH, Überrheinerstr. 5, D-85551 Kirchheim. Also during this year, Hennig CZ gradually began producing all of the products manufactured by Hennig GmbH in Kirchheim.
Further investments made in upgrading the facility, and in adding new machines (such as 4kw laser with storage capacity), allowed Hennig CZ to manufacture the complete line of Hennig GmbH products.
Continuous improvements in all departments provided the means for increased productivity. The number of employees increased to 130. Customers and prospects in Eastern Europe could now be served directly from Hennig CZ.
Hennig CZ expanded their reach in the Eastern European countries and began offering direct service of repair and maintenance of machine protections. The engineering department is expanded further to accommodate the increased demand for engineering services.
The expansion of the company’s in-house mechanical manufacturing plant virtually brings to an end the company’s dependence on parts from suppliers.
A new milling machine has made a significant contribution to this.
The expansion of a so-called “large line“ extends Hennig’s expertise in the Czech Republic in the manufacture of large, heavy steel telescopic steel covers.
The establishment of an in-house warehouse for standard components, profiles and various materials, strengthens the company’s independence and enables fast access by its in-house logistics department.
Further investments in our facility and production equipment and consolidation of our mechanical manufacturing capability allows us to produce all of our mechanical components under one roof. This will help us reduce production costs and improve our service levels.
