That’s pos­si­ble with Metz­ner. A hol­ding com­pa­ny that has seve­ral sub­si­dia­ries. What is behind it? Which com­pa­nies are invol­ved and why? It’s all about cables. The­re is an enti­re value chain behind it. Suc­cessful work through coope­ra­ti­on and inter­ac­tion that offers added value to the cus­to­mer. This is the approach taken by Metz­ner Holding.


Indi­vi­du­al machi­nes can also be expan­ded into an enti­re, auto­ma­ted pro­duc­tion line. Stan­dar­di­sed machi­nes are important — no ques­ti­on about it! Howe­ver, in such a fast-moving indus­try as we expe­ri­ence today, we must be able to imple­ment our cus­to­mers’ spe­cial wis­hes with regard to machi­nes or pro­duc­tion lines quick­ly and effi­ci­ent­ly. In doing so, we count on our long-stan­ding part­ner­ships and con­cen­tra­ted know-how.

Metz­ner Hol­ding has a total of around 150 employees and is based in Neu-Ulm. The indi­vi­du­al sub­si­dia­ries are con­trol­led from here under the manage­ment of Ger­hard Rauch. In a series of artic­les we will go into more detail about the role of each indi­vi­du­al com­pa­ny. The fol­lo­wing dia­gram pro­vi­des an intro­duc­tion to the histo­ry of Metzner.


The com­pa­ny, based in the rural town of Buß­manns­hau­sen (Neu-Ulm), pro­du­ces pre­cis­i­on parts with sta­te-of-the-art tech­ni­cal equip­ment. Qua­li­fied skil­led workers pay meti­cu­lous atten­ti­on to the demands of cus­to­mers and part­ners. Cus­to­mers from the mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring or pre­cis­i­on engi­nee­ring sec­tors app­re­cia­te this. Relia­bi­li­ty and pre­cis­i­on are the top prio­ri­ties at Metz­ner Präzisionstechnik.

The pre­cis­i­on parts can be made of a wide varie­ty of mate­ri­als. Steel (har­den­ed and unhar­den­ed), SPM, alu­mi­ni­um, brass, cop­per, sheet metal, stain­less steel and various other plastics.

The enti­re pro­ces­sing of the parts, such as mil­ling, tur­ning, ero­ding and finis­hing, is car­ri­ed out by the skil­led workers with the most modern tech­ni­cal equip­ment accor­ding to the customer’s wis­hes and requi­re­ments. The high-qua­li­ty machi­nery includes equip­ment from manu­fac­tu­r­ers such as DMB, Herm­le and Cha­mil­les. Spe­cial and indi­vi­du­al designs can be pro­du­ced with the hig­hest degree of per­fec­tion thanks to well-foun­ded exper­ti­se and many years of know-how. Metz­ner Prä­zi­si­ons­tech­nik pro­du­ces parts for the con­s­truc­tion of machi­nes and also for its sis­ter com­pa­nies Metz­ner Maschi­nen­bau, Metz­ner E‑Mobility and rama­tech, among others. Thus, a lar­ge part is pro­du­ced in-house and leads to an enorm­ous increase in qua­li­ty. The manu­fac­tu­red parts stand for per­for­mance, pro­gress and innovation.



As the lar­gest com­po­nent in the enti­re hol­ding com­pa­ny, Metz­ner Maschi­nen­bau GmbH pro­du­ces inter­na­tio­nal­ly and is a lea­ding manu­fac­tu­rer of cut­ting and assem­bly machi­nes in cable and pla­s­tics pro­ces­sing as well as auto­ma­ti­on solu­ti­ons for the car­bi­de indus­try and medi­cal technology.

For more than 30 years, Metz­ner machi­nes and solu­ti­ons have been con­vin­cing through paten­ted and inno­va­ti­ve pro­ces­ses. This appli­es to both the wide ran­ge of cut­ting tech­no­lo­gies in rub­ber and pla­s­tics pro­ces­sing as well as pio­nee­ring solu­ti­ons for the pro­ces­sing of cables, stran­ded wires and cor­ru­ga­ted tubes. In addi­ti­on, Metz­ner has sup­ple­men­ted its pro­duct ran­ge in recent years with auto­ma­ti­on solu­ti­ons for pow­der pres­ses and other indus­tri­al applications.

As a sys­tem pro­vi­der, Metz­ner deve­lo­ps and pro­du­ces both series machi­nes and cus­to­mer-spe­ci­fic sys­tems for each pro­duct area. Various patents and uti­li­ty models under­line the company’s know-how. Metz­ner curr­ent­ly employs over 100 staff and trai­nees in Neu-Ulm and has a world­wi­de pre­sence with more than 30 repre­sen­ta­ti­ves. A total of 23 series machi­nes belong to the pro­duct ran­ge, which is con­ti­nuous­ly sup­ple­men­ted by num­e­rous spe­cial solu­ti­ons. All machi­nes are deve­lo­ped and assem­bled in Neu-Ulm, Ger­ma­ny. In addi­ti­on, Metz­ner holds 25 patents, which under­line the company’s cul­tu­re of inno­va­ti­on and inven­ti­ve spirit.


All pro­ces­ses. All cont­act sys­tems. Five auto­ma­ti­on platforms.

In just a few years, elec­tric vehic­les have deve­lo­ped from a mar­gi­nal phe­no­me­non to a key topic for the mobi­li­ty of the future. Rapidly incre­asing pro­duc­tion figu­res for e‑vehicles in the next few years under­line the importance of this tech­no­lo­gy for auto­mo­ti­ve engi­nee­ring. Metz­ner trans­for­med its expe­ri­ence from the pro­ces­sing of spe­cial cables to the requi­re­ments of high-vol­ta­ge cables at a very ear­ly stage and today alre­a­dy offers wide­ly used auto­ma­ti­on solu­ti­ons for all pro­ces­ses of high-vol­ta­ge cable pro­ces­sing and the assem­bly of a wide ran­ge of cont­act systems.

Metz­ner E‑Mobility offers a wide ran­ge of dif­fe­rent auto­ma­ti­on solu­ti­ons for high-vol­ta­ge cable assem­bly. With its effi­ci­ent auto­ma­ti­on sys­tems for the pro­duc­tion of high-vol­ta­ge cable harnes­ses, Metz­ner E‑Mobility GmbH is making a signi­fi­cant con­tri­bu­ti­on to making elec­tric vehic­les afforda­ble for the mass market.
