Group of Companies

Centuries of Tradition in Machine Tool Manufacturing

The foundation stone for today's NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group was laid as early as 1833. In the course of its almost 100-year history, innovations have been created, crises have been overcome, and the group has gained its current reputation. New subsidiaries have been added over time - and with them new technologies, new brands and new locations. Other subsidiaries and branches were deliberately established and expanded with a great deal of entrepreneurial commitment and energy. Today, the NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group is one of the most important machine tool manufacturing companies in the world.
