The company
Knobbe Metal Industry is a supplier for one piece up to serial lathe and milling work.

With approximately 10 employees, we are considered a medium-sized enterprise. The company was founded in the 1960's, being a spin-off company of the former Hollandse Signaal Apparaten. In this period of time, many people started their own business resulting in the current supplier industry in the east of The Netherlands.

We focus primarily on serial production of parts that are sold throughout all of Europe and Asia. Our clients operate in various industries such as automotive,aerospace, transport, mechanical engineering, medical and rehabilitation and electrical engineering.

Our machinery requires one operator per 3 machines, making it a low-labour environment. We maintain ultramodern production lines which are capable to run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We produce in 2 shifts. In the future, we would like to expand our business as a process supplier, putting more emphasis on advising our customers on the possibilities that existing processes offer for the engineering of turned products. We are fully aware that due to the competition from low-wage countries such as the Czech Republic, Poland and China, labour-intensive production will disappear; leaving only highly automated innovative companies. Our knowledge allows us to let our customers benefit from these advantages.
