First International Exhibition
HENLE Baumaschinentechnik GmbH exhibits firstly on an international level at Paysalia in Lyon, France, between 1st and 3rd December 2015.
New Painting Workshop
In November, the new painting workshop was put into operation.
The painting works via a circumferential track system including several stations for lifting and lowering, as well as a drying room.
Additionally, the whole workshop was completely renoveted before the painting workshop was set up.
Development of the HENLE HQ
The development of the new quick coupler system "HQ" begins in cooperation with OilQuick Germany. In construction is a mechanical and a hydraulic version. The system is compatible to the fully hydraulic OilQuick system.
The photovoltaic installations now cover a total capacity of more than 270 kWp - we are able to produce approx. 63% of our total electric consumption. Through consequent waste separation, we were able to reduce the residual waste by 67%. In addition to that, HENLE Baumaschinentechnik GmbH rejects all kinds of biocides for the outdoor area. Equally, the complete floor of the metal cutting department was sealed in order to protect the natural earth.
We constantly check our situation with the latest legal requirements.
The Fourth Production Facility is Constructed
In 2012, the construction of the fourth production facility starts. The new plant enlarges the production area by 3000m³. For this building, modern machines were installed and a well-structured stock functioning with the Kanban-system was established. In order to make again an investment for the future, a special workshop for apprentices has been instituted in the production area. Furthermore, the most efficient technologies in order to follow the company’s environment policy are implemented.
ISO 14001 Certification and ISO 9001 re-Certification
Deepening the environment concept: logically concluding from the “Ökoprofit”-program, HENLE Baumaschinentechnik GmbH is now annually controlled according to ISO 14001.
Also in 2011, the company is successfully re-certificated according to ISO 9001.
The moral awareness of environmental damages becomes increasingly important: in 2010, HENLE Baumaschinentechnik GmbH is concluding the “Ökoprofit”-program after careful inspection. For this reason, an environment policy was thoroughly and continually established over a large period of time. This policy concerns foremost the employment of natural resources and the saving of energy costs.
The results of the “Ökoprofit”-program were quickly implemented, e.g. by installing a new lighting concept in the production facilities and a more ecoconscious waste disposal.
The occupational pension has reached 100%.
Expansion of the Administration Facility
The administration building is enlarged in 2008. Especially a new social environment for our staff is planned.
Furthermore, quality management according to ISO 9001 is implemented. In the same year, it is certificated.
The Third Production Facility is Constructed
On the old facility’s area, a new production facility is constructed in 2007. Included are a functioning system for the flow of goods, a specified area for loading and unloading as well as new parking lots. This leads to the successful separation of serial production and reparation services. Moreover, all roofs are equipped with photovoltaic installations.
In the same year, a metal cutting department is established. In consequence, the vertical range of manufacture is significantly expanded.
Own Manufacturing of Quick Couplers
From 2006 onwards, quick couplers are manufactured in the company’s own production facilities. In addition to that, a first step towards the future was made: the first apprenticeship positions are established both in administration and production.
Original Equipment for Mini Excavator Manufacturers
Manufacturing of OEM-parts begins.
