Our company history starts in 1969…
More than 50 years ago the carbide tool factory Andreas Maier GmbH was founded in Schwendi-Hörenhausen, Upper Swabia. We quickly became known to industrial companies from all over the world. Even then, customers appreciated us as a competent and innovative partner in the machining sector.
With the construction of a new production and administration plant in 2000 the production area was doubled to 25,000 m².
Today, the family business is successfully managed by the second and third generation.
HAM employs more than 350 people worldwide, 200 of them work at the headquarters in Schwendi-Hörenhausen.
Our customers benefit from the continuous development and optimisation of our processes and products as well as from our many years of know-how.
