The DR. JOHANNES HEIDENHAIN-STIFTUNG GmbH
HEIDENHAIN is fully owned by a non-profit organization created by the company’s founder. The company therefore operates independently of third-party economic and private interests. Its profits are invested in alignment with the non-profit organization and plowed back into the company itself. This special type of ownership ensures the company's sustainable continuity and the jobs of its employees. As a result, our employees enjoy a sense of working for their own company.
