Henke: yesterday

How a motorbike provided the impetus

Our history is built on a solid foundation dating back to 1973. Heinz W. Henke founded the company when he built the legendary MÜNCH motorbike. The production of simple mounting parts for transformers followed. High demand ensured rapid growth, with the next milestone following on 1 January 1993 with the founding of today’s Henke GmbH. Since then, our success has been characterised by flexibility, high quality standards and comprehensive, well thought-out solutions in industrial sheet metal processing that offer maximum reliability. Our various services provide our customers with space for their core business and make industrial sheet metal processing an important element of added value.
