    Wintersteiger acquires German machine builder HEMA


    Wintersteiger AG is taking over the majority of Heermann Maschinenbau GmbH, in Frickenhausen near Stuttgart, Germany, with effect from January 1, 2022.

    HEMA has around 50 employees and develops, produces, and sells band saws for almost all materials and applications. Their portfolio also specializes in solutions for cutting lightweight materials and insulating materials. The products are shipped worldwide from their headquarters in Swabia, with an export ratio of around 90% depending on the particular business year. In 2020, turnover amounted to approximately 8.5 million euros. Like Wintersteiger, HEMA is also a specialist and a technology and quality leader in a niche sector.

    The technically sophisticated solutions from HEMA enhance the Wintersteiger product portfolio in the Woodtech Division (thin-cutting saw machines, saw blades, mobile and stationary sawmills, automation solutions, and timber repair systems). HEMA will significantly expand the Division in regard to skills and applications other materials, besides timber, will now come to the fore for Wintersteiger. Lightweight foam, aramid honeycomb, construction and insulating materials, and technical plastics are particularly important in this regard.

    With this acquisition, Wintersteiger is pursuing further growth. Firstly, there is opportunity for growth for the HEMA products in markets where Wintersteiger has a mature sales structure such as geographically in the USA as well as regionally with automation projects. Secondly, Wintersteiger can benefit from HEMAs sophisticated technology for its own products. Wintersteiger will retain the Frickenhausen site and the strong HEMA brand,explains Dr. Florestan von Boxberg, CEO of Wintersteiger AG.
