WEINIG acquires grinding machine portfolio from Stähle-Hess

Shortly before the HOLZ-HANDWERK 2024, WEINIG signed a contract to take over the grinding machine program from Stähle-Hess GmbH (Reutlingen). After the technical integration phase, which will begin in the next few weeks, the Rotofinish, Gloria and Saturn machines will be produced in the WEINIG Group from 2025 and offered under the WEINIG brand name.

The agreement between the two companies does not constitute a takeover in the classic sense. WEINIG acquires the design drawings and the technical know-how for building the grinding machines from Stähle-Hess as well as the marketing rights. Warranties and service obligations for machines delivered remain with Stähle-Hess GmbH.

Managing director Werner Müller explains the background to the contract with WEINIG: “We have maintained good contacts for over 20 years. There was a regular exchange of employees and mutual support in market development. I myself was often in Tauberbischofsheim to meet with the experts WEINIG about the further development of planing and grinding machines. In this respect, the agreement we have now made makes sense, is consistent and is the best solution, also with the customer in mind.”

Werner Müller looks back on five decades of experience as a machine designer and successful entrepreneur. Since 1980, as managing director of Stähle-Hess GmbH, he has developed and marketed manual, semi- and fully automatic grinding machines for solid wood processing, primarily in window production. Rotofinish, Gloria and Saturn machines are now in use in many countries in Europe and beyond. “In addition to the highest technical performance, I was always interested in having a direct line to the customer,” explains Werner Müller, “I was often on site during the installation and commissioning of the machines. We often implemented individual adjustments to the machines in order to to optimally integrate them into the respective production processes.”

With this agreement, WEINIG is expanding its own product portfolio and can now offer customers in wooden window production a complete solution for processing machines for perfect surfaces from a single source.

Gregor Baumbusch is enthusiastic about the new opportunities created by the takeover: “We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers the Rotofinish technology from WEINIG. This takeover strengthens our position as a leading provider of woodworking solutions in the Wood window production and underlines our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction.”
