Kurth + Heuser was founded in 1961 and initially operating in the areas of machining and assembling sheet metal parts. In 1988, the first machine for the manufacturing of bumped boiler ends was designed and produced. Since then, K+H has continued to specialize in demanding metal trimming and beading machines. These tools are using an exceptionally economic method for edge processing of extruded or deep-drawn sheet-metal hollow parts. While K+H has been building custom machines since 1995, K+H has also continuously been developing into a turnkey supplier of production lines for vessels, boilers, fuel tanks and similar products over the past years.
