Many people say that HERMLE builds the best machines in the world.

HERMLE is all about milling and achieving outstanding results.

And we are committed to ensuring just this with our architecture, our structure, our work, our approach, our development, our construction, our assembly and our service. Everything we achieve, change or optimize makes our results better, more precise, available more rapidly– nothing more and nothing less. 

"Milling at its best" – as the slogan of HERMLE AG – sums this up aptly. It stands for high-performance, highly innovative machining centres which have risen to a leading position nationally and internationally. It stands for a sprawling and closely meshed sales and service network and the presence worldwide of more than 30,000 successfully installed machines. Ultimately, it stands for the success of our customers who achieve the best results in terms of precision and efficiency using our products. 

But what makes "milling at its best" possible? A constant supply of new ideas and the proverbial HERMLE precision in manufacturing, process consulting and sound project management. With more than 1,400 highly motivated employees, who are responsible for all this, we create the foundation. And we do this in a place which has traditionally been the home of precision mechanics and machine tools. All in all, these are the best possible prerequisites. They are the reasons why we enjoy a leading position today as a partner to numerous key industries. From large complex components to the smallest components in the high-tech area. From medicine to motorsport.

Milestones of our company history

From humble beginnings to a global player.

When Berthold Hermle set up a bolt and machine screw manufacturing company in 1938 in the southwestern German town of Gosheim, nobody could have guessed just how successful this venture would become. The company’s spirit and desire to exceed standards was evident even back then. And HERMLE has remained committed to this philosophy over the past 85 years despite its dynamic and remarkable development.
