Althoff Drehteile is looking back on almost 100 years of company history. During this time span, the company could always meet the customers’ high quality requirements in the field of precision turned parts manufacturing by experience and innovation.
In 1921, engineer Rudolf Althoff started the production of household goods from metal. After World War II, the company could resume production and the son of the founder, businessman Günther Althoff, joined the parental company. By the beginning of the 1950s, production was shifted to the production of metal turned parts for several industrial branches.
In the late 1950s and early 60s, the production mainly went into household and consumer electronic appliances. Among others, PHILIPS TV- and radio plants were supplied, as well as the Philishave shaver production, which is one of our outstanding customers since over 50 years.
In the 1970s, production was concentrated on turned parts for video, audio tape and dictation devices. In 1975, Günter Althoff jun., the founders’ grandson, joined the company. In the same year, the company started to supply customers in the field of industrial switch device manufacturing. In the 1980s, customers from the locks and security industry further increased business activities. Since that time, business in all different branches was constantly raised by the acquisition of CNC driven automatic lathes.
With Matthias Oettel, who joined the company in 2010, the company is continued in the fourth generation. Since then, several new customers from the automotive industry were gained.
Althoff Drehteile was awarded the Philips World Class Supplier award in Silver and Gold. Today, Althoff Drehteile is able to supply all industry branches with turned parts from Ø0,5 to Ø20mm.
