Word by Markus Isgro
The company was founded in 1947 and has been run since by two generations of the Baumann family. This lasting success in the marketplace is based on a superbly trained team of employees, and use of innovative modern machinery. Alongside various multi spindle machines and horizontal production lathes, demanding follow-up work is also carried out, including hard turning, fine turning, honing, and grinding. In particular, the recent addition of the VL 2 vertical turning center from EMAG has given a significant boost to the company's productivity.
