History

An authentic history based on performance

The family-run company, founded in 1954, is well-known for innovative and reliable production solutions. It is managed by Wolfgang Wenzler in the third generation of the family. Since 2009, August Wenzler Maschinenbau GmbH has become part of Heller group; a decision that opened up new possibilities in the fields of sales, service and development.

We are deeply rooted in one of the most important locations for the manufacture of precision parts. Here, we grow up with metal machining. We network intensively with industry and research. And it is here that we find reliable, skilled workers and highly specialised developers.
