April 3, 2021 marked the 125th anniversary of Gleason-Hurth Tooling GmbH, and a proud legacy of innovation dating back to when mechanic and tinkerer Carl Hurth founded his first workshop on Munich’s Viktualienmarkt. Today, Gleason-Hurth Tooling GmbH is an important part of global leader Gleason Corporation, producing advanced workholding and precision tools for the world’s gear manufacturing industries.
Products today include some of the most advanced and productive shaving cutters, chamfering and deburring tools, master gears and setting masters, honing and grinding tools, as well as diamond-plated dressing tools for a wide range of applications.
Most recently, the company’s plant facilities on Moosacher Strasse in Munich Milbertshofen have been completely renovated with state-of-the-art equipment and extremely efficient workflow and quality processes. In addition to the ultra-modern, digitised production, the newly designed office environment offers employees all the amenities and benefits of a creative and flexible working environment.
Company officials credit much of Gleason-Hurth Tooling GmbH’s continued success to its workforce of skilled and dedicated employees. The company continues to train its own apprentices to hand down critical skills and methodologies to the next generation of co-workers. Indeed, a large part of the company’s workforce today completed their apprenticeships at the Gleason-Hurth Tooling GmbH plant. The facility also serves as a training centre for the global Gleason Academy with an extensive programme of training, seminars and webinars.
Today, Gleason-Hurth Tooling GmbH is poised for significant future growth, and well positioned to meet fast-growing demand for innovative new drive concepts for electric vehicles, and other emerging products using increasingly complex, high quality gears.
