A Shared Vision For Global Machine Protection

August 30, 2016

Hennig and Thodacon are proud to announce a new joint venture in China. The Thodacon-Hennig joint venture creates a more connected and responsive machine protection supply chain for the global metalworking machinery industry. The partnership was founded on a shared vision for the future and common threads in the foundation of the Goellner and Vorpahl families.

Thomas Vorpahl, a veteran machine protection designer established Thodacon because he wanted to build a legacy for his family to cultivate. Thomas recants the decision to launch in China, “We saw China as an ocean of untapped potential for high quality machine protection so we took a risk. With my sons by my side, we took the leap east and worked very hard with our team to grow this business to where we are today.” Dietmar Goellner, Hennig CEO, shares his perspective on the JV “Some in our industry may view this venture as part of a global cost-leadership strategy, but we made this decision because of a shared vision for value innovation centered on speed. Time has always been our most valuable resource and saving time translates into saving a lot of money for us and especially for the industries we serve. Thodacon was the right partner for us to move quickly toward this vision.”

Manufacturing is quickly evolving with new technology; automation and machinery innovations and employee safety and machine uptime are major priorities for global manufacturers. Hennig and Thodacon have been serving global machine tool builders and users for years so what can the metalworking industry expect to change because of this Joint Venture?

  • Standardized global supply chain for a quick response to shared global OEMs
  • Local presence across the globe ensures quick and comprehensive response for-end users
  • Responsive employees culture focused on maximizing the returns on time
  • Combining decades of research and innovation to chart the future of machine protection
