UNION

UNION is the oldest machine tool manufacturer in Europe, which still operates today. Based in Germany, UNION is renowned for producing high quality horizontal boring mills and milling machines that are adaptable and innovative enough for machining work pieces up to 40 metres long, up to 10 metres high, and up to 250 tonnes in weight.

The History of UNION

UNION traces its origins back to its initial foundation by David Gustav Diehl in Chemnitz in 1852. Over the next 160 years the company has established itself as one of the market leaders in the field of horizontal boring. Following the reunification of Germany in 1990, UNION moved to privatisation, and the following decade saw a period of transition. For example, 1996 saw the establishment of a new UNION company when the employees bought-out the corporation. The last decade has seen UNION cement its position at the forefront of the industry; 2009 saw the extension of the product range for machining larger parts. In 2012, UNION was acquired by the family owned Herkules Group, which has allowed the company to utilise their substantial global sales and service network to expand further.
