As experts in deburring, we have been serving our customers every day for the past 60 years. In addition to our standard offerings, we also provide customised solutions with Swiss precision. Our focus: Reduced process times and unit costs for customers.
It all started in 1961. Even after more than 60 years, our customers continue to rely on us as deburring experts. Find out more about this in the company film.
Since 1961, all HEULE tool solutions have been developed and produced at our headquarters in the St. Gallen Rhine Valley. Switzerland supplies the European market.

The subsidiary in Korea was established in 2013. In the Gyeonggi-do office, three employees are available to respond to enquiries from customers.
HEULE has been serving the Czech market independently since 2020. Positioned centrally in the Czech Republic and, consequently, within the shortest time possible at our customers' plants: Tomas Tymkovic.
In 1988, the HEULE Tool Corporation subsidiary was established in the USA. The USA, Canada and Mexico are processed from the Loveland, Ohio location.
HEULE has been developing and producing its tool solutions in Switzerland for more than 60 years, specifically in the St. Gallen Rhine Valley, the centre of precision.
HEULE and its products stand for precision, reliability and the highest quality. Our passion for the perfect result and an extremely careful process steps description accompanies us every day.
Thanks to modern building technology, we air-condition our company building in Switzerland with zero CO2 emissions. In summer, we cool all rooms and machines with groundwater. In winter, we use the groundwater and the waste heat from our production machines for heating with the help of heat pumps.
We are firmly convinced that only a sustainable mindset and the careful use of all resources will save your and our future. That is why we are ISO 14001:2015 certified.
The customer's benefit is our top priority. Our tool solutions can significantly reduce production times in the customer's plant, resulting in lower unit costs.
Furthermore, the reliable operation of our tools ensures process-safe results that do not require any post-processing.
Over the past 60 years, we have maintained an unwavering passion for delivering the ideal customer solution. Depending on the application, either a standard tool or a custom development is used.
Initial tests of the selected solution can be conducted in Switzerland or at the customer's facility.

First, a disbelievingly admired idea was followed by worldwide recognition. Today, HEULE is synonymous with solving deburring problems.
Heinrich Heule established his company in 1961 as a contract manufacturing company. Already with one of his first commissions he reached his limits: It was to chamfer the insides of a fork piece in full-scale series production quickly and economically. At the time, there was no suitable tool for that purpose. He therefore created one himself, thereby filling a gap in the market. The cornerstone for a flourishing enterprise was laid.
Over the last 60 years, HEULE Precision Tools has been setting the benchmark in the development and manufacture of tools for front and back machining of bores in a single pass. Ulf Heule now manages the company, and the third generation is already working for HEULE. Everything is in place for the next 60 years of company history.
