Tradition and Innovation made in Thuringia


Seebach in Thuringia is directly linked to the German industrial history. In 1862, the brothers Thiel founded a factory for metal goods. First, the production included metal fitting for pipes and small metal goods. Afterwards, the company specialized their core business to the production of clocks. In 1901 they started with the development and production of special machines and tools for manufacturing clocks. The production program included small lathes, milling machines, multiple-spindle heads, eccentric presses and other machine tools. Almost 70 years later, the construction work of the production plant in Seebach began. Already after one year, the production started with the manufacturing of universal milling machines and drilling machines as well as machine tools.
