Company History

Martin and Ernst Höhn founded the Martin Höhn GmbH (Ltd.) in 1973. In a garage they produce precision parts with turning-, milling-, grinding-, boring machines and lathes. Soon, a total of seven staff employed and more machines are put into operation.

In 1976 in Fluorn and Rosenfeld was founded the FLURO Gelenklager (Spherical Plain Bearings ) GmbH to create a separate product line of spherical plain bearings and rod ends. After just one year, all tools and equipment were ready and the first products were ready for delivery.

The customer base in plant, bottling technology and the printing industry is expanding continuously, so that the first contacts were made to other European countries and Japan. In 1979, the newly built headquarters is based with 640 m² of floor space in the Siemensstraße in Rosenfeld.

The manufacturing area Milling is reinforced and expanded the range of products from previously relubricatable rod bearings and rod ends to maintenance-free and rust-free. In addition, the foreign distribution is organized. From 1984 CNC lathes are used. The following year, the first expansion of the production area is necessary and it can be created a Quality Control department.

In 1990, the second operation is an extension of total 1970 m². Less than five years later, a lack of space requires the next level, with a further office expansion to 185 m².

The production is now supported by robots, in the administration is a computerized system used. Also, the guarantee of quality is improved by a CNC measuring machine, 1997; the company receives the certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001. Since 1999 apprentices are employed, first in the office, then in the technical area.

In 1998, the succession has been prepared; the next generation will be initiated. In this case a further extension to the company by a further 2,910 m² in 2000 was carried out, which creates space for the fully automatic Kasto Langgut camp with 300 cassettes and the apprentice workshop with the latest CNC lathes and milling machines. Likewise, the production processes and the entire production flow will be redesigned and optimized. In parallel, the building is renovated.

Promotional activities and strategic partnerships help to anchor the company's position in the world market. New products such as hydraulic rod ends and spherical bearings are commissioned in 2002 into the program. The machinery is supplemented by complete machining centers and developed a motorsport product production run..

2005 space for the production, management and fully automated distribution center is created with a new hall and building wing. The goods movement and storage system is inaugurated the 2006.

After a short period of time they started to build a 4-storey office building, which was occupied in 2010.
