Investing in the future

Havlat Präzisionstechnik is investing a further 13.5 million Euros into the Zittau location. 2018 is therefore a crucial year for the direction of the future development of our company. At the beginning of the second half of the year, we are already expanding our machine park in order to include two CNC 5-axis Fehlmann Versa 825 milling machines. And this is just the beginning – further CNC machines have been ordered and are now currently being manufactured for us. For example, in 2019 a new DMG Mori 100U duoBLOCK as well as a DMG Mori 210U – both with a large tool magazine and pallet storage – will be put into operation. In addition to expanding our machine park, we are continuing to invest in the digitalisation of our internal processes and workflows. Furthermore, the pioneering 3D metal printing technology will also become part of our service portfolio in the next few years.

Everyday, we think ahead a bit more on the future of our company. In this regard, the Sächsische Zeitung newspaper published an article on 7th June 2018, which also broached the issue of the company’s continued existence under the family’s management.

Germany’s best training companies 2018

Havlat receives an award as one of the best training companies in Germany.

This year too, the best training companies in the whole of Germany were sought on behalf of Focus and Focus Money magazines. For this purpose, the 20,000 companies with the highest number of employees from 93 fields of industry were surveyed. A total of 745 companies received the “Germany’s best training companies 2018” award. The emphasis was on five aspects; training success; structural data of the training; training allowance, while the trainee quota and additional offers for trainees were evaluated using questionnaires and then entered into the scientific study. HAVLAT scored heavily in numerous aspects, and achieved the convincing overall result of 95.9 out of a total of 100 points. This shows that as a training company, we are on the right track and that our commitment and dedication to our apprentices is well worthwhile. The fact is that systematic vocational training and development enjoys a long tradition at HAVLAT and, indeed, is one of the core components of our company. Many of our former trainees are today employed as specialist and executive staff, while also passing on their knowledge and ability to young trainees. In order to do justice to the importance of vocational training in the future as well, further investments and optimisations in vocational training and development are planned.
