Annaul review 2021
What happened at heimatec
For a long time, it was not imaginable that meeting customers in person at trade fairs or similar events would be possible again at some point. Thus, we had moved our trade fair presence to the digital world and were part of EXPO21xx.
Second Corona Year
Also in 2021, new Corona measures had to be constantly implemented and observed. Medical masks, contact data tracking, testing possibility at the workplace, 3G regulation for the workplace etc....
It was time to simply say THANK YOU:
Trade Fair Events
The situation improved in the summer and real trade fairs finally took place again. So in the last six months we were again represented at trade fairs worldwide ourselves and with our trade partners. Our personal highlight was the EMO in Milan, Italy.
Speeders at heimatec. SwissTooling
In spring, our heimatec.SwissTooling product group was expanded to include the speeders. Thus, further construction types such as radial and axial versions as well as offset versions are now available.
Standard tools could not serve the customer's requirements. He contacted our sales department and our construction department. Together they looked for a solution, drew up plans and produced a customised, extra-long axial drilling and milling head.
We are proud being able to equip the Nakamura SC100x2 with heimatec tools directly at the market entry. Especially for this purpose, we have constructed and manufactured a combi-multiple turning tool holder. This holder makes it possible to accommodate an additional turning tool on the turret of the new machine and thus offers more possibilities for external machining.
In the magazine "Asia Pacific Metalworking News" we reported in a technical article about the changing times in the metalworking industry.
In cooperation with the local newspaper, we published an advetorial as part of the "Careers at Homeland" campaign.
We have prepared a lot of information about our products as videos. We have clustered them and placed them centrally on our YouTube channel.
Our product finder is one way to find the suitable heimatec tool.
Since this year you can also see when products have extended delivery times.
New production hall
Our new production hall has been finished since the beginning of 2021. We have gradually relocated machines and restructured our production processes. In the meantime, we have had to say goodbye to our long-time partner "BERTA" (CNC machine tool).
heimatec tools are of guaranteed MADE IN GERMANY quality from our location in Renchen, Germany. Even though we develop and manufacture locally, our tools are in use on all continents. To simplify the acquisiton of our tools for our customers, we have a worldwide network of trade partners, so that normally advice can be given in the native language.

Advent bei heimatec
This year, for the first time, we had an Advent calendar for our customers, which showed them the beauty of our region.
We also raffled off an original Black Forest cuckoo clock, which won our trade partner MAMACH Machinehandel BV.
Due to our new production hall, we are continuously expanding. In 2021, we regularly looked for new employees.
As a benefit for our employees, we have been offering bike leasing since autumn.
Standing still means taking a step backwards. That does not exist at heimatec. We keep developing and work in the background on our "heimatec Factory 4.0". Whether new production technologies, process automation or classification - there are many topics that we are pushing forward.
After the turbulent last year, we hope for a more predictable, successful 2022. We have prepared ourselves for the challenges in the best possible way and optimised our processes.
If the situation allows, we will be represented at numerous trade fairs and look forward to personal exchanges with our customers.
We will continuously develop our precision tools and serve the market requirements in the best way.
We look forward to continued good cooperation!
