Company history


FLURO-Gelenklager GmbH in Rosenfeld


By taking the step into self-employment, the brothers Martin and Ernst Höhn laid the foundation stone for the company group Höhn-FLURO®.

More than 40 years of existence, which does not only mean to have gone through good and bad times consistently and solidly, but also to have established oneself on the market, to have won customers and partners by the own abilities and qualities and to have constantly developed oneself. The constant growth to around 180 employees is proof of the continuity and reasonable development of the company.

From the very beginning with the guiding principle: to convince with quality, precision, speed and flexibility and to offer all customers competent advice and every conceivable support. The fact that the company has now been in existence for four decades proves that this is the right way to go.

In the meantime, the company group Höhn-FLURO® has firmly established itself in the niche of the metalworking industry. FLURO® now supplies to 74 countries, while the Höhn company has established itself as a manufacturer of precision parts made of high-quality materials with machining know-how.

We would like to thank our employees, as well as our customers, suppliers and all business partners, for the trustful cooperation.




Martin and Ernst Höhn founded the Martin Höhn GmbH in 1973. In a garage they produce precision parts with turning-, milling-, grinding-, boring machines and lathes. Soon, a total of seven staff are employed and more machines are put into operation. FLURO® headquarters in Rosenfeld 1979


The FLURO®-Gelenklager GmbH was founded in 1976 in Fluorn and Rosenfeld 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 are based with 640 m² of floor space in the Siemensstraße in Rosenfeld.Plant construction, filling machine, filling technology


The manufacturing area milling is reinforced and the range of products from previously relubricatable rod bearings and rod ends is expanded 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 quality management department can be created.


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


Lack of space requires the next stage of expansion with a further office expansion of 185 m².

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.
