At the start of 1998 senior partner Willi Humpert took over the management as the fourth generation to run the family company, which was founded in 1918. In the years that followed the company was successfully restructured and given a strategic direction for the future. In the process the core operations of tube components and surface finishing technology were brought in line with the requirements of the market. At present a well-qualified workforce of approx. 150 is occupied in various factories supplying different industries.
