The continuation of a success story
Interview with Karl Remppel, CEO
My goal is to provide fresh impetus for the long-term development of the company and for Harrandt to open up into other attractive business areas such as e-mobility. In these dynamic markets, we also prove our reputation as an innovative solution partner who continuously invests in research and development and thus in the future of the company. It is important to me that we combine our goal of creating profitable and sustainable growth with our commitment to be an attractive employer and a responsible member of our society.
What distinguishes Harrandt from other precision engineering companies?
When Feinwerktechnik Otto Harrandt was founded in 1958, the success story was not foreseeable. The spirit of the company and the absolute will to produce more than just "standard" were present from the start. To this day, Harrandt has remained loyal to this ethos - we have continuously invested in the qualification and further development of our employees and despite rapid growth in new products and in new markets, have managed to maintain the original entrepreneurial dynamism and expand our technological leadership.
Today we master a wide range of modern measuring, testing and assembly technologies, which we combine with 60 years of experience in factory automation. Our many years of experience in the automation of complex measuring, testing and assembly processes is combined with our relentless curiosity and the demand to precisely understand the ideas and specifications of our customers. We not only look at our customer’s finished product, but also analyze the upstream and downstream processes. In this way we can ensure an increase in our customers' productivity over the long term.
Short decision-making channels and flat hierarchies as a design principle for flexible and customer-oriented structures are part of our daily activities.
With this philosophy we became the world market leader in measuring, testing and assembly technology for everything and anything to do with automobile pistons. On this basis, coupled with our thirst for knowledge, continuous research and development, improvements and consistent internationalization, there are now numerous new areas of application and fields of industry for Harrandt. We are unique and revolutionary - and still characterized by the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation.

What makes Harrandt special?
Being prepared for constantly changing requirements and never losing sight of own quality standards: This is a challenge we meet every day by mastering technological changes and the complexity of the requirements and thereby flexibly responding to the wishes and suggestions of our customers.
All our key technologies and competencies are in-house - from software development to mechanical and electrical construction to the use of a wide variety of measurement, testing and assembly technology. Our highly specialized production enables us to develop customized solutions quickly, independently and flexibly. Or in other words: we are the right partner for demanding projects. See for yourself.
Our case studies
Harrandt goes Cobot.
With the use of collaborative robots, Harrandt stabilizes production processes, maintains quality standards and facilitates the work processes of the workers.
Harrandt measures hairpins faster than the eye can blink.
With an intelligent test module, we make it easier for our customers to install hairpins without errors.
Harrandt goes Digital.
The wire test module for testing and quality assurance of coated enamelled copper wires is our prime example of the possibilities of the IoT.
Pfisterer recognizes quality defects faster and more reliably - and with Harrandt finds even the tiniest defect.
A 360° endoscope camera enables the specialist company for energy transmission to reliably detect the smallest surface defects in high-voltage insulation bodies.
