About Heinrich Huhn:
Heinrich Huhn is a medium-sized automotive supplier based in the region Südwestfalebn and at home in the world of metal forming. For more than 100 years, Heinrich Huhn has earned a reputation as a reliable, honest and competent partner for its automotive tier 1 customers. In the process, the company has successfully undergone the transition from a metalworking company to a leading manufacturer of metal formed parts and complex assemblies primarily for the automotive industry. Based on a wide range of different manufacturing processes, Heinrich Huhn is constantly on the lookout for innovative solutions for its customers. From development to series production, the company covers the entire process chain. Currently, production takes place at two locations in Germany (Drolshagen-Hützemert and Drolshagen-Scheda) and at a plant in Slovakia (Vrable).
Together with the management, Berylls has acquired all assets and investments of the insolvent Heinrich Huhn GmbH & Co. KG.
Prior to the completion of the takeover, a sustainable restructuring concept was developed with all key stakeholders (customers, suppliers, employees, trade union, management, insolvency administrator), which will enable a stable and long-term development of Heinrich Huhn. In addition to providing capital, Berylls supports Heinrich Huhn in particular with industry know-how and its network from the automotive industry as well as with human resources for the operational & financial turnaround and the strategic orientation.
