Heule Tool Corp. (HTC), based in Loveland, Ohio, recently celebrated its 30th anniversary serving manufacturers in North America. HTC was established in 1988 by Heule Werkzeug AG in Balgach, Switzerland, and was first located in West Plymouth, Michigan. After moving to Cincinnati in 1993, HTC continued to increase sales of its automated deburring, chamfering, countersinking and spotfacing tools in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

“Our customers in North America appreciate the high-quality product that the Swiss make,” says HTC President Gary Brown. Mr. Brown, who has been leading HTC for 29 years, thanks Heule Werkzeug AG CEO Ulf Heule and Ulf’s father, Heinrich, who invented the first automated deburring tool in 1961 and launched the company. “We couldn’t be here without you,” Brown says.

Ulf Heule thanks HTC employees for their hard work in making Heule successful in North America. “Today HTC is an important part of the Heule group,” he says. The Swiss company has subsidiaries in Germany, China and South Korea.

HTC celebrated its anniversary April 25, 2018, by inviting local sales agents, distributors, customers, government officials, business partners, friends and family to an open house and pig roast. Ulf Heule and Gary Brown also planted a tree on the grounds of HTC to commemorate 30 years of growth in North America.
