In the beginning, there was the idea to take charge and create something. Out of this inspirational spark, a plan evolved. Spiked with the necessary entrepreneurial courage, this led to the foundation of Hitega Präzisionsmechanik in Gangkofen nearly three decades ago.
Those who do not want to stand out due to their size, need to distinguish themselves by virtue of their particular capabilities and accomplishments. Today, this firm entrepreneurial belief becomes evident in our slogan «The Spirit of Precision».
The employees at PTF Hitega are proven experts in their field. Working in cooperative teams with our customers, they develop technical concepts and implement them with a great sense of responsibility and enthusiasm. Innovative, precise and efficient. We are convinced that the continuous improvement of processes and the permanent enhancement of our capabilities guarantee sustainable customer relationships and are a prerequisite for joint success.
