In the late 1950's, Heinrich Heule realized the need for quality deburring and chamfering tools in the manufacturing industry. Indexing parts or deburring by hand was wasting time and reducing productivity.
On June 22, 1961, Heinrich manufactured the first HEULE tools for a regional firm, from the cellar of a house situated in Rheineck, Switzerland, an ancient market town in the Rhine Valley. With that success, Heinrich founded HEULE Werkzeug AG.
Shortly after, German Automotive Manufacturers who saw benefit in HEULE's ingenious tooling requested the developmment of a standard series of deburring tools. "The day on which I signed the first contract for my tool was the most wonderful day in my whole professional life," says Heinrich, who is still today the owner of the company.
