Productivity Solutions for the Metal Industry.

With the opening of a new branch in Neugnadenfeld in 1969, company Ernst Julius Maschinenbau KG formed the basis for the foundation of today's company hpl-Neugnadenfelder Maschinenfabrik GmbH. Following challenges in the 1970s, REIMA Maschinenbau GmbH was re-established in 1979 and later renamed Neugnadenfelder Maschinenfabrik GmbH. Over the years, the company expanded with the addition of hpl-Maschinenbau und Steuerungstechnik GmbH. Under the new owner Bernd Voshaar, the companies were merged in 1998 to form hpl-Neugnadenfelder Maschinenfabrik GmbH.

Since then, hpl-Neugnadenfelder Maschinenfabrik GmbH has specialized in the design and manufacture of strip handling, machining and processing systems for the metal industry. This includes both state-of-the-art new lines and efficiency-increasing modernizations of existing lines for handling and processing strips of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, such as steel, stainless steel, coated metals and special materials. The hpl portfolio is completed by a proactive after-sales service, contract manufacturing of assemblies and special-purpose machinery.

hpl-Neugnadenfelder is your competent partner along the complete supply chain. 

hpl-Neugnadenfelder is part of the Neuenhauser Maschinenbau Group, a family-owned engineering company with approx. 2,500 employees, based in Neuenhaus/Germany.
