The HELLER group has been able to develop a unique global corporate culture in the area of conflict that lies between traditional mid-sized family enterprises and internationally operating providers of innovative solutions for machining production. HELLER has been a successful mid-sized family enterprise for 120 years that remains independent and family-owned. Continuity in leadership and at the shareholder level continues to be the mainstay of the business. In mid 2013, members of the fourth generation of the family became involved in the business. These four great-grandchildren of the company's founder are getting ready to take the company into the next generation. Berndt Heller continues to preside over the supervisory board with no change to his position. An enterprise that began 120 years ago with seven journeymen and three apprentices has grown into an internationally operating company with over 2500 qualified employees today. It is a business that can be proud of its success story, and one that can set its sights on the future with confidence.
