Good partnerships can often also be found right around the corner. A good example is the Howial company in Reiskirchen. This manufacturer of specialty machinery for wood processing is located in the immediate neighbourhood of the WATZ headquarters. For more than 30 years, finger jointing machinery has been produced right in the vicinity of the university city of Gießen.
The family business that is now being managed by the third generation plans and develops a full range of finger jointing machinery. The name Howial stands for reliability, high performance, intuitive operability and stable construction. This reflects the quality expectations that WATZ Hydraulik has for their product range. Beyond this, both companies are owner managed and have an international orientation. Consequently, it’s no surprise that these two neighbours searched for and found each other.
