Quality prevails - HF TireTech Group are expanding their production capacities

Since 1855, HF has evolved into the spearhead in pioneering development and manufacturing of special machinery for the rubber and tire industry on the global market.

The extrusion units and extrusion lines designed by the HF TireTech Group are appreciated in the tire and rubber industry. Thanks to high technological standards, utmost reliability and an extremely long life-cycle of its machines and components, the HF TireTech Group has earned worldwide recognition for its extruders.

Due to a continuously rising demand for HFs’ machinery and systems for the tire and rubber processing industry, HF has reached the limits of its production capacities at the site in Hamburg. This circumstance, together with changing requirements of the market, has led to the decision to move the manufacturing facilities to HF-NaJUS in Slovakia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HF, that is looking back on a long history of manufacturing rubber processing equipment. Using state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, this location has successfully served HF as a production facility with a high production integration level for the HF Mixing Group since 2009 and has in 2013 become HFs’ second plant in Eastern Europe alongside the already successfully working production site in Belisce, Croatia.

HF- NaJus benefits from

  • A well-educated and highly motivated workforce
  • A minimal staff turnover due to the local ties of most employees and their great loyalty to HF, a world market and technology leader in all product areas.

Crucial success factors of this site are:

  • A lean organization
  • Good transportation networks throughout Europe
  • Simplified customs procedures due to Slovakia’s EU membership
  • A fully developed infrastructure
  • Stable production costs and high productivity
  • A comprehensive program to ensure continuous improvement
  • An incisive quality consciousness of the employees
  • Certification acc. to ISO 9001 together with HFs German plants

Consequently HF- NaJus was chosen as the new center of excellence for HF Extrusion Technology production, machine assembly and logistics.

The production of Extrusion Equipment and the final assembly will remain HF´s core business (“Made by HF”) and an integral part of the HF TireTech Group value chain.

The experienced HF-Team, consisting of management, engineering, sales and service will remain available to the customers at the HF location in Hamburg.

The expansion of the production capacity for our Extrusion equipment and the creation of more room for innovation will enable HF to continuously deliver the level of services the customers have come to expect in terms of quality and reliability.
