The company - Heldener Metall Technik GmbH & Co. KG
HMT GmbH & Co. KG was founded by Dr. Karl Heinz Virnich in 1997, in the Attendorn district of Helden, which forms part of the company name. In 2002, we moved into our own premises, with a surface area of 12,000 m². In 2007, our branch plant in Poland opened, in Sroda Slaska (Lower Silesia). Significant machinery purchases were made in 2009 - with the first 800 t servo press - and 2011 - with the first laser welding cells (4 KW). After moving our in-house logistics to the Askay logistics centre, we expanded our machine pool with a hybrid bonding plant (2014) and a 1,000 t servo press (2015) for the Attendorn plant. Our plant in Mexico will start up in 2018.
