HISTORY

Our company was founded in Germany in 2008 by Thomas Nöth. Already after 2 successful business years we could expand to the European as well as the US-American market. 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 more than 2.500m3 volume in our US logistics center in South Concord Park Bluffdale alone. With our local manufacturing and production facilities, our internal capacities add up to nearly 5,000m3. In order to remain competitive in the future, an area of more than 7,000m2 was already developed in 2019, in addition to the existing capacities.

MECHANICAL MANUFACTURING

The machining of our products takes place to approx. 80% 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 in the area of rotary cutting, is carried out by one of our production partners in Kreuzwertheim, 8 kilometers away. As a partner of HERA’s birth as well as a renowned company with experience in medical technology, the automotive industry as well as in mechanical and plant engineering, we can draw here on decades of experience.

POLYMER PRODUCTS

In addition to our production capacities in the milling machining sector, we also have a strong polymer section. Here we currently produce products for the global market on more than 30 active injection molds. The consistent in-house development and the production location in Germany clearly differentiates us from the competition.

As a partner for our polymer production, we rely on the many years of experience of one of our suppliers in Altfeld, 6 kilometers away. Here our injection molds are stored, maintained and used for production. In addition to machines across the entire tonnage spectrum, our partner also has a tool and mold making facility as well as extensive capacities in the development area.

EXPORT

Already from 2010 on we exported constantly to the North American market. With the foundation of HERA LLC in 2016, we were able to further expand our presence in the US market and strengthen existing structures. As a supplier to the most important US wholesale companies such as RSR or Sport South, we provide the proof here that we can compete in one of the most competitive markets with quality and innovation. In addition to our US commitment, we now also have a worldwide network of importers and resellers too.

ARTICLES OF TRADE

Our focus is on the development, construction and market launch of innovative products for the civil market. In our product range you will also find merchandise or, with slight modifications or adaptations, products manufactured especially for us. These are usually marked by us with AOT (Articles of Trade). If you have any questions about our AOT articles, please do not hesitate to contact our sales team at info@hera-usa.com.
