Tradition & Progress – an unbeatable team!

Since its founding in 1957, the company has been run by Mr Sondergeld as a fixture and mould making company and already produced the first versions of precise countersinking tools.

In 2003 Robert Hitzegrad took over the business and continued it under the name Senkwerkzeuge Hitzegrad e.K. The production and the product portfolio have been continuously developed. The production of prototypes and individual parts as well as of CNC precision turned parts has also been established since then.

Since 2019 we operate under the name Senkwerkzeuge Hitzegrad GmbH. Mr Hitzegrad continues to be Key Account Manager for Countersink Tools. The introduction of the modern 3D-CAD system Solid Works underpins our continuous development in the field of engineering, to be able to offer our customers specific solutions from a single source.

Over the years, we pass on our know-how and our decades of experience in the company – a development process that is part of every one of our products.

At the same time, we are continually looking for new, innovative ways to make our products even better, to develop new products, to use the latest technological advances and to integrate them effectively into the manufacturing process.
