Company history

 

Managing Directors Reiner and Martin Höhn

 

By taking the step into self-employment, the brothers Martin and Ernst Höhn laid the foundation stone for the company group Höhn-FLURO®.

More than 40 years of existence, which does not only mean to have gone through good and bad times consistently and solidly, but also to have established oneself on the market, to have won customers and partners by the own abilities and qualities and to have constantly developed oneself. The constant growth to around 180 employees is proof of the continuity and reasonable development of the company.

From the very beginning with the guiding principle: to convince with quality, precision, speed and flexibility and to offer all customers competent advice and every conceivable support. The fact that the company has now been in existence for four decades proves that this is the right way to go.

In the meantime, the company group Höhn-FLURO® has firmly established itself in the niche of the metalworking industry. FLURO® now supplies to 74 countries, while the Höhn company has established itself as a manufacturer of precision parts made of high-quality materials with machining know-how.

We would like to thank our employees, as well as our customers, suppliers and all business partners, for the trustful cooperation.
