HAIMER and TCM have entered into a strategic and long-term competence partnership. Markus Temmel (right), CEO of the TCM Group, and Andreas Haimer (left), President Haimer Group, are looking forward to further intensifying their cooperation.

The Haimer Group has become a 25% shareholder in WinTool AG and agreed on a strategic partnership with the TCM Group, which grants HAIMER global distribution rights to WinTool and Toolbase.

In the future, TCM will rely on HAIMER as a strategic supplier in the field of tool holders, shrinking, balancing and presetting machines in the core business of tool management.
 
At EMO 2023, HAIMER took an important step forward and has since been offering its hardware products for machine tools alongside a digital range consisting of the WinTool software, an independent tool management system, and Toolbase, a smart tool dispensing system with software and hardware components. In order to realize this, HAIMER entered into a competence partnership with the TCM Group, which includes WinTool AG and Achterberg GmbH. The partnership has now been anchored strategically and long-term by the 25% shareholding in WinTool AG and consolidated by further global distribution agreements. This enables HAIMER to offer and distribute both product lines to its worldwide distribution partners and customers.

“In 2023, we worked together very intensively and were able to achieve significant success in a very short period of time. The product portfolios of HAIMER and the TCM Group complement each other seamlessly and our shared understanding of our customers’ requirements will lead to even more powerful overall solutions. Both partners stand for practical, high-quality solutions that are geared towards the long-term benefit of the customer,” said Markus Temmel, CEO of TCM.

Andreas Haimer, President of the HAIMER Group, explained that the strategic partnership with TCM and the investment in WinTool fit perfectly with HAIMER’s strategy: “We want to offer our customers worldwide a coherent system concept with regard to digitization and automation of tool room management. This requires easy-to-implement products and intuitive software solutions that enable users to increase productivity on the shopfloor. With our new WinTool and Toolbase products, we are able to offer our customers the most complete solution on the market. In a record time of just four months, we introduced the systems in our own large production facility with over 200 CNC machines. Our own positive experiences and the great customer feedback at EMO 2023, along with the trustful cooperation with the TCM team, has encouraged us to take the next step with WinTool and TCM,” Haimer said.
