Buying a machine is a matter of trust!
In 1982 Stürmer Maschinen was founded by Kilian Stürmer as a wholesale company for machinery with agencies and is one of today’s leading suppliers of German machinery retailers. The group of companies currently employs approx. 280 people at its sites in Hallstadt and Pettstadt.
The following companies belong to our group in Hallstadt:
Stürmer Maschinen GmbH
Stürmer Werkzeuge Maschinen KG
Optimum Maschinen Germany GmbH with machine production in Asia
Fini Deutschland GmbH, the German branch of a leading compressor manufacturer from Italy
Stürmer Service Center
Stürmer Marketing Center
SLD GmbH, our logistics-provider
The label Stürmer stands for courage and optimism. These qualities have allowed us to grow into a successful and efficient company that successfully supplies metalworking, woodworking, compressed air and welding technology as well as cleaning and workshop equipment to more than 20 European and more than 40 non-European countries.
We do not rest on our laurels, though, and will continue to face the changing times.
The fact that this concept works is shown not least by the award for “Bavaria’s Best 50”, given by the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology in July 2016. The award honors the most dynamic owner-managed medium-sized companies in Bavaria for their sales and employee development as well as sustainable, successful corporate development.
STÜRMER – Precision meets innovation for more than 40 years
It is our utmost concern to meet the expectations of our customers and business partners at all times. Mutual trust forms the basis for long-term and successful cooperation. We will continue to strengthen our specialist trade partners and act honestly and as partners in accordance with our philosophy. In the face of a challenging market, we will make all the necessary investments to remain an efficient supplier to our partners in the future.

QUALITY MADE IN GERMANY.
MAFELL’s only production facility is in Oberndorf am Neckar. This commitment to quality made in Germany is further illustrated by a vertical range of manufacturing that covers as much as 85% of its output, and by the company’s own toolmaking operation.
From injection moldings to high-performance motors, from design to assembly, and from toolmaking to quality assurance: MAFELL quality is founded on the deployment of our key skills in an exemplary, process-overarching and high-tech manufacturing operation in Oberndorf. This approach enables us to respond quickly to emerging needs.
Here at MAFELL, we often adopt a new approach in our quest to develop better machines. We take a fresh look and reconsider the crucial aspects of the tool concerned. And we always give due consideration to the future needs of the woodworking trades.
Time and again, together with outstanding material and build quality, our strategy spawns astounding solutions. We thus continuously enhance functionality and user-friendliness, for example. We strive to ensure that, while you are working, you no longer need to give the tool a second thought. Simply because MAFELL has already done the thinking for you. You focus on your job – and as far as everything else is concerned:
