A firm with strong roots in Westphalia – our story

A brief outline of our company history is available here:

Albert Himmeldirk began his tool manufacturing business in two garages and an old hatchery at his parents' house in 1986.

The garage quickly became too small and the tool manufacturing moved into an old hen house building on the same site.

The garage quickly became too small and the tool manufacturing moved into an old hen house building on the same site.

To be able to carry out the tool testing on site and to deliver the initial samples of the tools to clients, a testing press was required.

A 250 tonne press was purchased which was initially set up outside in the 'open countryside'. Eventually, a new press and assembly hall was built around the press.

1997: the old hen house is too small and too low. Crane tracks are required in order to be able to manage the increasingly bigger tools and components.

For this reason, the first old hen house is demolished in the summer of 1997 and a workshop and office building are newly erected on the same site.

Another, larger press (1,000 tonne press) is acquired in 2001. The existing hall is too small and has to be replaced by a larger one.

Delivery of the 1,000 tonne press and assembly on the newly constructed foundations. Afterwards, the workshop can then be rebuilt around it.

The final construction phase – the extension of the machine shop. So that all machines can be operated via crane tracks, the second hen house which is still in use at the time is replaced by the construction of another new machine shop in 2004.
