Milestones of the company HA-CO GmbH

It all started in 1980 in a rented hall of 50 square metres as "Hafner Fertigungstechnik". At this time the main task was the manufacture of extremely complicated milled parts. Parallel to this, the company started to develop a range of couplings.

Since the beginning importance was attached to the most modern machines. Already in 1938 they worked with CAD softwares for construction and developmnet.

To cope with the growing demand on couplings in this year, a new production facility with 250 square metres was rented and the headcount was increased on eight employees.

A particular highlight in the company history was the lending of the "bavarian state price of excellent achievements" by Franz Josef Strauß in 1986.

In 1988 Walter Hafner bought an industrial site in the industrial area of Kleinwallstadt to start with the construction of a workshop with office building in 1990. In this context the sole proprietorship was converted into "Hafner Maschinenbau GmbH". After a short construction period, the 25 employees moved into the new premises one year later.

Unfortunately the unchecked upward trend of Hafner was suddenly curbed by the recessionary phase, espacially in machine tool industries. The headcount had to be reduced massively.

To be able to resist such fluctuations better in future, an comprehensive network of agents was successfully expanded in Germany and the neighbouring countries, also to settle down in other industry sectors.

As of 2000 the company Hafner could develop a new business area: The development, construction and production of special mounts for notebooks and displays of military facilities and vehicles. These developments standardly happen only in the 3D area. Therefore already in this time Hafner Maschinenbau had CAD stations in the 3D area.

Since a company succession from Walter Hafner by family members was excluded, the company was sold to "Haudenschild Houlding".
