Heinrich Georg GmbH - our History

On 20 June 1948, Heinrich Georg took over his father’s workshop and laid the foundation for what is today’s global company. His initial idea was a machine and shears for straightening and cutting iron reinforcements which was in high demand during the reconstruction of post-war Germany. This machine is called the Lilliput Shear. In 1955, Heinrich exhibited at the Hanover Fair which resulted in the machine being manufactured and sold across Europe.

With the introduction of electronics in factories in the 1970s, mechanical functions were replaced with electrical controls. A local machine tool company was acquired paving the way for a highly complex machine tools division.

The company’s global reputation as an innovative and reliable solution provider in advanced mechanical engineering continued to develop. In the 1980s, subsidiaries, sales and services offices were founded in China and the UK, they ventured into North America in the late 1990s and founded a subsidiary in the USA.

With the birth of a new century, Mark Georg, grandson of the company’s founder joined the management and now leads the company. Second generation entrepreneurs, Gerd Georg and Hans-Jurgen Patt are also involved at a senior level in the company. In 2008, Heinrich Georg died age 90 leaving a strong legacy of entrepreneurship and engineering innovation.

The new digital age continues to drive change within the company which has aligned itself technologically and economically with the future. Investment in infrastructure, buildings, machines and personnel means the number of employees worldwide exceeds 500.

Georg remains true to its origins, bringing many innovations to market and laying the foundations for the company’s development from a machine builder to an intelligent process optimiser. Since the Lilliput Shear was first created to today, we remain at the cutting edge of technology.
