23.05.2019

Meschede | Germany.

When Hans Hohmann founded ITH on 17th May 1979, his first innovation was the Bolt Tensioning Cylinder. His goal was to create a tool which connects two components more efficiently. 40 years later ITH Bolting Technology connects not only components, but also continents and people.

ITH connects – the motto of the 40th anniversary

From its beginnings in Hans Hohmann’s garage, ITH Bolting Technology has developed into the worldwide leading system supplier in bolting technology of today. The motto of the anniversary reflects important factors for this successful development.

“Our bolting tools connect two components – that’s their purpose”, Frank Hohmann explains, who leads the company together with his brother Jörg Hohmann in the second generation. “Furthermore we act internationally and therby connect continents”. 

Over the years ITH’s international sales and service network has grown to currently twelve ITH-owned subsidiaries and more than 27 additional representatives.

Jörg Hohmann explains the third aspect of the motto: “ITH connects people. All employees of ITH worldwide contributed to the company’s growth with their passion. That is the most important aspect. We would like to thank everybody for their commitment and involvement”.
