Our company was founded in Germany in 2008 by Thomas Nöth. After just two successful business years in the German market, we expanded to both the European and US-American markets. In 2010 the company was renamed to GmbH. In 2016 HERA LLC was founded in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Formerly founded as a small company, we have a volume of more than 2,500m3 in our US logistics center in South Concord Park Bluffdale alone. With our German manufacturing and production facilities, our internal capacities add up to nearly 5,000m3. In order to remain competitive in the future, in 2019 we developed an area of more than 7,000m2 in addition to our existing capacities.
Approximately 80% of our machining production happens in our production hall in Triefenstein. Here, on our own machinery, we manufacture all housing parts such as uppers, lowers, hand guns, rail systems, pistol stocks, etc. Mechanical finishing such as slide grinding and robot-assisted glass bead blasting are also carried out here. Our machine park relies 100% on machines from the manufacturer DMG Mori AG.
The production of firearms and the assembly of various components is also carried out at our location in Triefenstein. Approx. 20% of the machining production, mainly rotary cutting, is carried out by one of our production partners in Kreuzwertheim, 8 kilometers away. They have been a partner since HERA’s inception as well as a renowned company with experience in medical technology, the automotive industry and mechanical and plant engineering, and they provide decades of experience upon which we can draw.
In addition to our production capacities in the milling machining sector, we also have a strong polymer section. We currently produce products here for the global market on more than 30 active injection molds. Our consistent in-house German production clearly differentiates us from the competition.
One of our suppliers in Altfeld, 6 kilometers away, boasts many years of experience and is our partner in polymer production. Here our injection molds are stored, maintained and used for production. Our partner has machines across the entire tonnage spectrum, a tool and mold making facility and extensive capabilities in the development area.
We have been exporting to the North American market since 2010. With the creation of HERA LLC in 2016, we further expanded our presence in the US market and strengthened existing structures. As a supplier to large US wholesale companies such as RSR and Sport South, we have proven that our quality and innovation can compete in the uncompromising firearms market. In addition to our US presence, we now have a worldwide network of importers and resellers.
