Precise Metal Production GmbH & Co KG was originally founded on 1 January 1986 by Hubert Gissler in Zell-Unterharmersbach in rented premises.
Soon the premises were too small, so that the construction of an own production hall with office wing (altogether 900 sqm) in the industrial area Steinenfeld in Zell am Harmersbach was necessary. In the following years the production area was extended by a second hall with 580 sqm.
The level of awareness as a specialist in metalworking for CNC turning, milling and grinding rose continuously both nationally and internationally.
Therefore, in November 2011, the new construction of a third production hall with an office wing for the areas of work preparation, quality assurance and production management was completed with a total of 1,290 sqm. The office wing also includes a fully air-conditioned measuring room with a vibration-free floor. At the same time, the two lathes MORI SEIKI NL2500SY/ 700 and MAZAK QT Smart 350 were added to the machine park.
Atthe beginning of 2014, the company entered the field of gear hobbing with the corresponding production and measurement technology: External / involute gearing (hobbing, up to module 6) as well as spur / hirth gearing.
Atthe end of 2014 and beginning of 2015, the machine park was expanded by a highly efficient multi-axis turning center MORI SEIKI NZX 2000/ 800SY and MORI SEIKI NZ2000 T2Y, each with two turrets and Y-axis, for high-precision machining of complex workpieces at maximum productivity.
Effective October 1, 2015, three operational managers became shareholders in the company in addition to Hubert Gissler: Managing Director Christian Wordl (34%), Production Manager Karl-Heinz Spitzer (8.5%) and QA Manager Armin Leopold (8.5%). The additional capital contributions were used exclusively to increase the company’s capital.
Atthe beginning of 2016, the company expanded to include a high-precision MORI SEIKI NLX2500SY/ 700 lathe with a turret and Y-axis.
Inmid-2016, the company entered the field of laser marking with the GRAVOTECH TF420 fiber laser station and subsequently expanded its machinery with two high-precision MORI SEIKI NL2500SY/ 700 lathes with a turret and Y-axis.
Atthe end of 2017, the machine park was expanded with a new high-precision MORI SEIKI NLX2500SY/ 700 lathe with a turret and Y-axis.
At theend of 2018 and beginning of 2019, a new high-precision lathe MORI SEIKI NLX2500SY/ 700 with a turret and Y-axis and a MORI SEIKI NL2000/ 500 were added again.
On January 2, 2020, the managing partner Christian Wordl additionally took over the company shares of the previous main shareholder Hubert Gissler amounting to 49% in full and thus now holds 83% of the company. The remaining 17% continues to be divided equally between the operating shareholders Armin Leopold as Quality Manager and Karl-Heinz Spitzer as Purchasing Manager.
Hubert Gissler, who has no longer been operationally active in the company since mid-2013, remains the lessor of the premises with the three production halls including office building, for which a total 20-year lease agreement exists.
In May 2020, the machine park was expanded to include a Kellenberger cylindrical grinding machine KEL-VISTA UR 175-1000, which is as good as new, and the measuring room was expanded to include a form and position measuring device MITUTOYO Roundtest RA2200AH.
Effective June 18, 2020, our QA Manager and Human Resources Manager Armin Leopold has additionally taken over Karl-Heinz Spitzer’s company shares in full and thus holds 17% of the company shares.
In August 2020, a new EMAG VL 4 turning centre with FANUC control and integrated pick-up automation was added to the machine park; the VL 4 is a vertical turning machine for the productive production of chucked parts up to 200 mm in diameter.
In September 2020, a new multifunctional Tool Management System from GÜHRING for tools and measuring equipment was installed.
Mid-November 2020 saw the addition of a new MORI SEIKI NLX1500SY500 high-speed lathe with a turret and Y-axis for smaller inside and outside diameters, as well as a new MORI SEIKI NTX1000SZM high-precision mill-turn center with a 76-cavity tool magazine and 12-cavity turret.
As of January 2021, our company will legally operate under the name Precise Metal Production GmbH & Co. KG (instead of GISSLERprecision GmbH & Co. KG). In the course of this, a change in the shareholder structure was also made, but three operational managers continue to be shareholders in the company: Managing Partner Christian Wordl (58%), Production Manager Benjamin Hermann (30%) and QA Manager/Human Resources Manager Armin Leopold (12%). The additional capital contributions were used exclusively to increase the company’s capital.
In March 2021, the machine park was again expanded by a high-precision MORI SEIKI NLX2500SY/700 lathe with a turret and Y-axis.
In October 2021, a highly efficient multi-axis turning center MORI SEIKI NZX 2000/ 800SY with two turrets and Y-axis was added.
With these continuous investments, the company remains technically up to date and sets the course for further challenges in the field of demanding precision metal parts.
