RENCHEN, GERMANY-Heimatec Inc., a global live tools, angle heads and multi-spindle drill heads manufacturer, has relocated to substantially larger headquarters near Chicago. According to company president Preben Hansen, “We made this move to increase our inventory and our staff to better serve the growing ranks of our customers, both end users and distributors alike.”

The new location is in Prospect Heights, IL, previously home to Heimatec. It represents a 50% increase in the office and warehouse capacity for this growing supplier to the North American machine tool market. Hansen anticipates hiring new staff for the facility soon.

Heimatec has introduced complete lines of tooling, each designed for specific brands of machine tools, including the major builders of turning machines used in the North American market, such as Haas, Okuma, Mazak, Spinner, Miyano, Nakamura and others.
