Tommy Hehnke, Managing Director
We are a second-generation family business that prominent customers from all over the world have been relying on for more than 25 years. You present us with your idea, and we ensure it remains viable in the future, from the planning through to prototyping or series production.
As a plastics professional in precision injection molding and hybrid components, we are a capable partner for numerous industries, including the automotive industry, electrical and control engineering, and consumer goods production.
We hope that this website will give you a comprehensive picture of our work. Of course, we are also available to you personally and look forward to your visit and many successful projects together.
Your project – from idea to series production
Your idea becomes a success, facilitated by our experience.
An experienced team will advise you on various solution options using plastic–metal components.
3D printing using the specific plastic your product requires.
We economically manufacture batch sizes from 5,000 parts to several million parts, in Germany.
Using computer tomography or 3D measuring technology, your products are inspected down to the last detail.
The products that leave our production are long-lasting and thus sustainable.
... we do with curiosity, inventiveness, precision and passion
Design is form and function
Your project is our project
A high-quality mold opens the door for success ...

Current topics from our company
With the new 80 kWp photovoltaic system, approx. 20% of the annual energy requirement of our tool shop can be covered. This marks another important milestone in CO2 savings at Hehnke, with approx. 44,000 kg of CO2 saved per year.
Three energy-efficient, all-electric injection molding machines were delivered to hehnke: two ARBURG 470 Golden Electric machines as replacement investments for the production of electronic components, and one ARBURG 570 A for the production of e-mobility hybrid components.
The sharply rising prices for energy and raw materials are a major hurdle for many medium-sized companies, who are forced to pass on these additional costs to their customers in order to stay in business. To emphasize the urgency of a price increase at OEMs, the management visited VDA president Hildegard Müller, together with minister for economic affairs Wolfgang Tiefensee and automotive thüringen.
Along with three other companies from Haselgrund, hehnke is a sponsor of a Talent Company at the Strahlemann Foundation at the state regular school Steinbach-Hallenberg. The signing of the funding agreement marks an important milestone in the expansion of vocational training. In the future, schoolchildren will be able to gain an early insight into various vocational jobs in industry and craft trade during their school learning.
The first Arburg-GESTICA control system was installed at hehnke for a new Arburg 520A injection-molding machine. The energy-efficient, all-electric machine is part of an automation solution for a reusable packaging process. The GESTICA control system supports hehnke’s digital processes. It allows filling simulations in the process, as well as many intuitive operations.
Responsibility is part of our nature – We work sustainably
In order to preserve our common livelihood, we as a family business are aware of the huge responsibility we must shoulder for our own generation and future generations.
Our investments in the future of course take this into account, starting with certified energy management, energy-efficient state-of-the-art production facilities, in-house energy production via PV systems, and the responsible and sustainable treatment of our employees.
In addition, of course, only products of the highest quality leave our house, on which our customers and the end consumers can rely for many years.
We are also committed to our region, supporting associations, institutions and events so that our beautiful area becomes even more attractive for everyone and it is worthwhile to stay, live and work here.
