In 1937, HEYCO was originally founded by Max and Ernst Heynen as a manufacturer of hand tools. Besides this, the range of products was continuously expanded since 1980. HEYCO emerged as a competent supplier of plastic- and forged components for the automotive industry.

HEYCO is widely recognised as development partner for the module- and systems business by its automotive customers and is much valued for its prototype production. Taking into account customer specifications, HEYCO produces technically and economically mature high grade components.

In its traditional field of business activity, HEYCO is exporting tools to more than 70 countries.

In typical Bergisches Land tradition, Max and Ernst Heynen always placed a high value on providing a family environment in their company. As was the good old-fashioned custom, they lived where they worked.

From 1937, our head-quarters – administration, central warehouse and distribution centre – continuously expanded to its current size. As the company grew, the Heynen home was integrated into the office complex.
