Since it was founded almost four decades ago, the company has gained an impressive reputation across the country and the rest of the world, establishing itself as a reliable supplier and service provider. Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH offers a broad range of innovative products and solutions, covering all areas of hydraulics and pneumatics. To do this, it collaborates closely with sister company Anton Klocke Antriebstechnik GmbH, a reliable supplier of mechanical drive components and small assemblies for engineering. The organisation is flexible in nature, being large enough to support international companies in the industry whilst also small enough to ensure clear, focused structuring. With the recent launch of the new ‘Heitz eShop’, Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH’s products are now available to purchase online, 365 days a year. This easy-to-use website makes the shopping experience even smoother, faster, and more comfortable than before, offering a clearly arranged overview of the company’s products. Whether customers are looking for spare parts, standard parts, or special components, they are likely to find what they need on the Heitz eShop, which now features over 40,000 items. At Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH, speed is regarded as a highly important factor in ensuring the satisfaction of its customers. To ensure the rapid availability of its entire product portfolio, the company maintains a well-organised and extensive inventory. Furthermore, alongside its comprehensive standard delivery programme, Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH offers custom-made products and individual solutions. In order to ensure the best experience with ordering special solutions, the company is currently working on implementing a hydraulic hose configurator, which will be available to use shortly. With this new offering, customers will be able to put together the hydraulic hose line they need with accessories from the company’s extensive product portfolio without having to waste time searching through catalogues or websites. This feature is expected to optimise order processes, reduce error rates, and ensure increased planning security and cost-effectiveness through shortened downtimes. On top of this, if stock is available, it will contribute towards the fast delivery of orders. Moreover, as a well-established business with many years of experience, Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH can provide its customers with extensive know-how that has been honed and developed over the years. The company’s highly knowledgeable team are able to answer any pressing questions related to hose pipe connections, holding systems, central lubrication, and general industrial supplies.

The team will assist them with the development of solutions for their area of application, providing them with support from the first consultation to final implementation. “We are not only a competent wholesaler, but also a development partner for mechanical engineering,” explains Ansgar Niemeyer, Application Engineer at Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH. “In addition to well over 100,000 items, of which we always have 6,000 to 7,000 in stock, we are also in demand for individual products and holistic solutions. It makes me a little proud that our customers in the OEM sector have applied for patents on many solutions that we helped develop.” Internally, Karl Heitz Industrievertretungen GmbH is committed to its corporate philosophy, which it views as the engine for its constant development and evolution. The company operates based on a number of important core values, including collaboration, freedom for personal commitment and responsibility, performance, high quality standards, openness, communication, trust, respect, honesty, fairness, and reliability.
