Founded in 1951 by Frida and Wilhelm Hainbuch, HAINBUCH GMBH has a long history of innovation beginning with the original quick change collet system, first patented in the USA in 1980.  This invention has now been copied many times and is the de facto industry standard.  Today, HAINBUCH boasts over 150 patents worldwide and continues to revolutionize the field of precise, adaptable and quick change collet chucks.

HAINBUCH America traces its beginnings to 1997 when the parent company opened its first sales office in suburban Milwaukee with Welge Machine Tool Corporation to market its line of modular, quick change chucks.

In the year 2006 HAINBUCH rebranded itself »HAINBUCH America« and appointed Jürgen Bettray as President.  The company continued to develop a reputation as an innovator in quick change OD and ID workholding solutions for the rapidly growing CNC lathe and CNC milling machine markets.

Not content to remain solely an importer of finished CNC workholding solutions, in 2010 Hank Kohl was hired as the new President for HAINBUCH America. Under Mr. Kohl’s leadership, HAINBUCH America began to engineer, manufacture and service HAINBUCH’s modular chuck systems.

This led HAINBUCH America to move into its new 14,000 square foot manufacturing facility in late 2012.  Located in the aptly named Milwaukee suburb of Germantown, the new plant houses HAINBUCH America’s growing team of inside sales representatives, engineering, and manufacturing.

Together with our colleagues in Marbach, Germany, HAINBUCH America has the capability to assist North American customers in collaborating on special application designs, engineered workholding solutions and the full manufacture of products designed to fit their needs.  Our regional sales managers, supported by our Wisconsin based Inside Sales and Service support team, stand ready to assist customers with their most challenging applications.
