Notably faster and more efficient without compromising on quality: transformation of the production environment at Hennecke-OMS

Despite the omnipresent Corona crisis, Hennecke is investing several million euros in a step-by-step structural transformation of its production sites around the globe. The Verano Brianza site of the core brand Hennecke-OMS, with its sandwich panel and technical insulation portfolio, alone accounts for two million of this volume. Creating added value under the umbrella of the company’s "Hennecke 2.0" strategy, this venture represents one of the largest investments in the company’s recent history. Following the pilot project at the company’s headquarters in Germany, the ’Hennecke Production System’ (HPS) was launched just before Christmas at the Hennecke-OMS facilities in Verano Brianza. The world’s leading specialist for the production of sandwich panels and insulation boards supplies a wide spectrum of customers who will particularly benefit from the synergies created by the new production system. The aim of the HPS is to increase the competitiveness of the entire Hennecke GROUP.

Thomas Wildt, CEO of the Hennecke GROUP, summarized the importance of the new production system: "The aim of the new Hennecke Production System is to ensure a sustainable, successful future for the Hennecke GROUP by combining practical methods and design principles for optimum efficiency". In effect, the set of measures for the production environment at Hennecke-OMS in Italy play a decisive role in the gradual realignment of the Hennecke organization worldwide.

The HPS is a modernized version of the well-known lean production system and its content has been tailored specifically to the entire Hennecke organization. The system is a methodology for production, and at the same time represents the culture of the future for Hennecke-OMS in Italy and the international Hennecke GROUP. The main added-value of the HPS lies in connecting the different operational areas, which allows for a synchronized, waste-free production that is aligned with customer demands. Here the focus is on reducing stocks and downtimes, and on maximizing quality and adherence to delivery dates, as well as using assembly space to add value. Besides establishing a set of process rules to ensure smooth order processing, essential improvements have been made to the production layout. The required reorganizational measures have been successfully implemented despite the adversities caused by the Corona crisis. These include putting the infrastructure into operation and setting up the new work spaces. Although the individual measures are due to be completed in the final quarter of 2022, the changes are already clearly apparent. Reorganization of the production and the stock areas has started. Making a distinct separation between the areas for assembly and material supply creates maximum adaptability for a freely configured and flexibly designed (flow) production for the different products and their assemblies. Separate areas are also dedicated to pre-assembly and to customized products.

The completion of these major reorganization measures represents an important milestone for Hennecke in the successive transformation to a center of added-value and for the future of the Italian production site in Verano Brianza, as well as the engineering offices in Vincenza and Abbiategrasso, which are also part of the HPS roll-out in Italy.

Hennecke staff celebrated the launch of the new production system at an inauguration ceremony on 15 December 2021, where a graphical depiction of the HPS was unveiled and is now on central display to staff, customers and suppliers in the assembly hall. To depict the system, Hennecke has selected a well-established pillar model which resembles a roman temple. The Hennecke Business System (HBS) and the Hennecke Core Values constitute its strong foundations. The concept of ’performance management by objectives’ forms the so-called substructure and helps the company remain on its chosen course using key performance indicators. The management principles of the system are the delegation of responsibility, autonomy and driving company success on the basis of the performance indicators. Each individual element of the temple is equally important in itself. However, it is the right interaction between the individual components that makes the HPS strong enough to withstand all external influences.

Now, after celebrating the kick-off, the entire Italian team is highly motivated to tackle further challenges along the way to meeting their goals and to further demand and promote cultural change and a constant willingness to improve processes and workflows. Securing the sustainable, successful future mentioned above, will now be much easier to plan. The Hennecke 2.0 transformation means that the Hennecke GROUP is strong enough to endure the current global crisis and has been able to keep all employees on board. Rather than reducing its global workforce, the Group is currently looking for even more specialists to accompany its transformation into the future.


Mastering the "new normal" together: full commitment for optimal customer support worldwide

The global Corona pandemic continues to pose immense challenges to us and our customers. Although the number of cases particularly in Europe and Asia has been considerably contained, large parts of the world population are still living with large-scale restrictions. As a global company, the Hennecke GROUP must be hypervigilant of developments in the pandemic. Meeting on a weekly basis, a group-wide crisis management team therefore continues to focus its efforts on maintaining production and delivery channels and all other processes. Naturally, the health of our employees, customers and suppliers remains our top priority in the framework of the measures we have taken. We are especially pleased that the efforts we have made in conjunction with the applicable regulatory requirements have gradually led to a relaxation in restrictions at almost all our sites worldwide. Currently, our subsidiaries in Germany, Italy, the US and China are no longer affected by a lockdown and most members of staff have been able to return from working at home. We are constantly monitoring the protective measures at all sites and adjusting these to the respective regional circumstances as necessary.


Current measures and key steps for containing COVID-19 (plan for easing restrictions) at the Verano Brianza site in Italy

  • Face coverings must be worn on the entire company site
  • Masks and disinfectant are available for employees and visitors
  • Production operating in two shifts and remote working
  • Some business trips and customer visits are permitted again following approval from the respective manager
  • Daily temperature measuring for all employees and visitors upon entering the company site
  • Meetings are permitted again in compliance with hygiene and distancing rules
  • Canteen remains closed




HENNECKE-OMS is one of the world leaders in the production of continuous sandwich panel lines using mineral wool (MiWo) boards as insulating core materials.

The complete line is composed of the following parts:

- Automatic line for cutting and inserting mineral wool strips for wall panel production

- Automatic line for cutting and inserting MiWo trapezoidal sheets for roof panel production

- Machines for polyurethane glues

- Roll forming units for geometric shaping of the metal sheet (roof and wall panels)

- Preheating ovens

- Double belt conveyor

- Cutting machine

- Out-feed line, stacking and packaging section


New augmented reality service from HENNECKE-OMS!

HENNECKE-OMS has implemented an Augmented Reality (AR) strategy in its service unit. Using Acty technology, we have been testing the possibilities of AR to provide remote assistance. In the coming months this strategy will change how we interact with our service activities. We are confident that it will improve how we serve our customers, train employees, and ultimately the wy in which we can compete.

AR allows 2D digital information to be overlaid onto the real world (3D). This reduces the mental effort required to apply the information, prevents distractions, and minimizes error, freeing people to focus on the objectives. In addition, AR improves our ability to absorb knowledge quickly and accurately, to make decisions and to perform the required activities faster and more efficiently.

Acty is a remote video support platform in a cloud: skilled remote engineers provide precise visual instructions to our field technicians and the messages provided are displayed in real time, superimposed on the real objectives. This solution is designed for smartphones and tablets, taking advantage of their simplicity and ubiquity. In this way, the augmented visual collaboration via smartphone cameras allows the remote expert to guide the technician in the field. Acty also enables the customer to be guided by a remote technician who can see exactly what the customer sees and walk them through the repairs.


  • Innovation in business management methods
  • Assembly instructions provided in the field to internal technicians or subcontractor (video, chat, pictures and documents)
  • Professional way of working during travel restrictions by limiting travel and expenses
  • Solve problems remotely using just a smartphone, tablet and smart glasses
  • Comprehension timing for trouble shooting in real time and first time fix rates
  • Training on the job for junior cooperators (setup available in 7 different languages)


Working on Acty allows us to repair equipment and assist customers without sending our technicians on-site. We can remotely share our expertise, and support and train technicians working in the field on extremely complex machines (such as a continuous panel line). As a result, travel costs are kept to a minimum.


AR helps us make better decisions about how to solve issues, resulting in:

  • 11% reduction in overall costs for service teams
  • 17% decrease in work-error rates, and higher repair quality
  • 39% faster resolution time
  • 25% increase in customer satisfaction
  • 12% less repeat visits
  • Last but not least, we can expect a return of 15 € on every € invested in AR.


AR will have a widespread impact on how companies differentiate their service provision in the same sector. HENNECKE-OMS provides the AR component allowing us to assist, train and support our customers immediately and wherever they are. This creates value and sets our service apart. We’re playing to win!


The effects of AR can already be seen across the value chain, but they are more advanced in some areas than in others. AR shows great potential in service, where visualization and instruct/guide applications are making the greatest impact. For example, showing predictive analytics data where AR guides the service technician proactively through repairs in real time, allowing the customer to prevent a potential problem.



HENNECKE-OMS is one of the world leaders in producing discontinuous panel systems complete with wet part (foaming machine) and dry part (multi-plate presses with movable trays) using PUR and PIR foaming technology. The evolution of discontinuous plants means that production is much more adaptable to customers’ needs with maximum flexibility: a large variety of panel sizes, different thicknesses, variable production densities, and numerous panel types with different designs and geometries. The new PANELFOAMER from HENNECKE-OMS also offers limited total investment costs and requires fewer maintenance operations.

The major innovation of the PANELFOAMER discontinuous line is the Open Mould Foaming System. Using a distribution pipe, the foaming takes place directly on the press plate during the plate’s input movement to the press.

The Open Mould Foaming System offers the following distinct advantages:

  • Optimal and even foam distribution over the entire panel section, with no voids inside the panel
  • Low and homogeneous densities over the entire panel area
  • Possibility to inject very long, thick and wide panels in only one shot, no foam junctions or multiple injections
  • Fully automatic foaming operation, no human intervention required
  • No need for elongations or pipes for injecting into the panel, preventing air bubbles in the foam
  • Suitable for all kinds of foam formulation and blowing agents
  • Nitrogen inertization cycle is not necessary when using pentane as blowing agent





HENNECKE-OMS continues to assist you!

One global team, one objective: maintain customer satisfaction even during the COVID-19 crisis

Dear Hennecke GROUP customers,

You are most certainly following the latest developments in the spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) in Europe and many other parts of the world and it is likely that your company is already directly or indirectly affected. It can be assumed that the number of infection cases will continue to rise. The measures introduced by government authorities in many nations to prevent a further spread of the virus also have an effect on the global supply chain. It is all the more important for us to inform our customers, partners and suppliers as soon and as best as possible about the current status of the Hennecke GROUP and the impact of the situation - for example concerning potential supply constraints. All global companies of the Hennecke GROUP are currently coordinating with one another via a taskforce. In order to protect our employees as far as possible, we have introduced the following extensive protection measures at all Hennecke GROUP sites:

• Smart working from home for all Italian employees until the lockdown imposed by the Italian government is lifted on 3rd May 2020 and possible extension in order to maintain distancing in the offices and a minimum of workers on the premises

• Strict internal hygiene regulations and limited personal contact with customers and suppliers

• Business travel only in exceptional circumstances and only with management approval

• Explicit quarantine rules for staff members who have stayed in high-risk areas or had possible direct or indirect contact with infected people

• Trade fairs and events have been cancelled or postponed

In this context, we ask for your understanding should our business relations be affected by these measures. Our global management team is currently concentrating on maintaining production and delivery routes and all other processes as far as possible and ensuring continued supply. We are trying to counteract the situation with targeted action. The activities of HENNECKE-OMS are in keeping with the precautionary measures laid down by the Italian authorities and all our departments are ready to provide any kind of service and further clarification you might need.

Please contact our specialists at any time if you have any questions about the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on the Hennecke GROUP:

Easing lockdown measures: HENNECKE-OMS is operational again

One global team, one objective: maintain customer satisfaction even during the COVID-19 crisis

Dear Hennecke GROUP customers,

We are pleased to inform you that from 4th May 2020 HENNECKE-OMS is back in operation from the company headquarters in Verano Brianza. As you know, we implemented extensive protection measures at all Hennecke GROUP sites to help prevent a further spread of the Coronavirus and to protect our employees as far as possible. At Verano Brianza we introduced smart working from home for all our employees until the lockdown imposed by the Italian government was lifted on 3rd May 2020. Now our Italian employees have been able to return to the workplace and our production has restarted in earnest. We are working hard to make up for the time lost during the lockdown measures. Of course all HENNECKE-OMS activities remain in keeping with the precautionary measures laid down by the Italian authorities.

The following measures still apply at all Hennecke GROUP sites:

  • Strict internal hygiene regulations and limited personal contact with customers and suppliers
  • Business travel only in exceptional circumstances and only with management approval
  • Explicit quarantine rules for staff members who have stayed in high-risk areas or had possible direct or indirect contact with infected people
  • Trade fairs and events have been cancelled or postponed until further notice

We would like to thank you for your continued support during these uncertain times. Please remember that all our departments are ready to provide any kind of service and further clarification you might need. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our specialists at any time.


Hennecke definiert sich neu – Etablierung der Hennecke GROUP und Transformation der weltweiten Strukturen

Durch das stetige Wachstum der Marke Hennecke, insbesondere aber durch den Erwerb der HENNECKE-OMS S.p.A. in Italien und dem damit verbundenen Ausbau eines gemeinsamen internationalen Vertriebsund Servicenetzes ist es notwendig geworden, einen einheitlichen Markenauftritt zu realisieren, der als Dachmarke für alle Produktportfolios fungiert: die Hennecke GROUP. Der neue Außenauftritt ist dabei weit mehr als nur eine Änderung in der externen Kommunikation: Auch die Komplexität der weltweiten Hennecke- Organisation wird im Zuge der Neuaufstellung deutlich verschlankt und somit wesentlich schlagkräftiger. Anstatt ein Verbund von unterschiedlichen Unternehmenseinheiten sorgt seit September 2019 ein Netzwerk von klar strukturierten Geschäftseinheiten für neue Synergieeffekte. Unter der Bezeichnung „Hennecke 2.0“ treibt Thomas Wildt, der neue CEO der Hennecke GROUP, die Transformation der Polyurethan-Spezialisten hin zu einer hocheffektiven Organisationsstruktur, sowohl intern wie extern, aktiv voran.

Der neue Markenauftritt der Hennecke GROUP umfasst zwei grundlegende Aspekte: eine Kombination der drei unabhängigen Produktportfolios der Marken:

  • "Hennecke Polyurethane Technology",
  • "Hennecke Roll Forming Technology"

und das weltumspannende internationale Netzwerk aus Produktionsstandorten sowie Vertriebs- und Serviceniederlassungen, die Produkte und Dienstleistungen von mehr als einer Marke aus dem Portfolio der Hennecke GROUP in den lokalen Märkten anbieten. „Die Kernmarken und das Branding der einzelnen Produkte und Dienstleistungen bleiben selbstverständlich erhalten und sind weiterhin klar erkennbar“, verspricht Wildt. Somit werden Organisationseinheiten, die nur für das Produktportfolio einer einzelnen Marke im Konzern verantwortlich sind, auch weiterhin nur mit dieser Marke am Markt auftreten. Insbesondere aus Sicht des internationalen Netzwerks ermöglicht der einheitliche Markenauftritt wesentliche Synergien und eine deutlich klarer strukturierte Kommunikation gegenüber der weltweiten Hennecke-Kundenbasis.

Wildt ist seit April 2019 Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung (CEO) der Hennecke GROUP. Der Diplom-Kaufmann bringt langjährige Erfahrung aus dem Mittelstand-, Konzern- und Private-Equity-Umfeld mit ins Unternehmen. „Wir werden die Hennecke-Organisation neu aufstellen und transformieren das Unternehmen innerhalb des Projekts Hennecke 2.0, um effektiver für die Zukunft zu werden“, erklärt der ausgewiesene Experte im internationalen Maschinen- und Anlagenbau. Entscheidend dabei ist, dass die zentralen Unternehmensprozesse jetzt dezentral organisiert sind. In vier Kompetenzzentren (Centers of Excellence) aufgeteilt, konzentriert sich nun jeder Standort der neuen Hennecke GROUP auf seine Kernkompetenz. Vorteil für den Kunden: kürzere Lieferzeiten für standardisierte Produkte sowie Einzeldosiermaschinen und komplexe Gesamtanlagen für die Polyurethan-Verarbeitung aus einer Hand. „Hennecke entflechtet seine organisatorische Komplexität. Dazu gehört auch die Schließung von zwei Standorten, die bisher Dienstleistungen für das Anlagengeschäft der Kernmarken übernommen haben“, betont Wildt. „Was zuvor noch an mehreren Standorten parallel geplant und gebaut wurde, wird jetzt nur noch in einem Kompetenzzentrum gefertigt. Die gesamte Unternehmensgruppe wird dadurch wettbewerbsfähiger.“ Von den entstehenden Synergieeffekten soll insbesondere das breite Kundenspektrum von Hennecke profitieren. „Wir machen mit der Hennecke GROUP einen wichtigen Schritt vorwärts, indem wir uns auf die Dinge konzentrieren, die uns in der Vergangenheit erfolgreich gemacht haben“, erläutert Wildt. „Hierzu zählen exzellente Einzel-Dosiermaschinen und weitreichende Service-Dienstleistungen. Zudem werden wir die Einzelunternehmen viel stärker in das Hennecke-Netzwerk integrieren.“

Am deutschen Unternehmenshauptsitz in Sankt Augustin wird ab sofort die Entwicklung, Planung und Fertigung sämtlicher Hoch- und Niederdruck-PUMaschinen und aller erhältlichen Mischkopf-Systeme zusammengezogen. Das Herzstück des gesamten Portfolios sowie tausender Verarbeitungsanlagen weltweit bleibt also weiterhin „Made in Germany“. Der Standort in Mailand (Italien) konzentriert sich auf das Geschäft mit umfassenden Systemlösungen zur kontinuierlichen Produktion von Sandwich-Paneelen. Die Tanklagertechnologien für das gesamte Systemgeschäft der Hennecke GROUP liefert der Standort in Pittsburgh (USA). Die Hennecke GROUP-Unternehmen in Jiaxing und Shanghai (China), spezialisieren sich noch stärker auf die Entwicklung und Herstellung der „Trockenteile“ für die gesamte Hennecke GROUP. Durch die Aufteilung in die verschiedenen Kompetenzzentren kann Hennecke nun als einer von wenigen Herstellern von PU-Anlagen auf dem Markt seinen Kunden komplette Gesamtanlagen aus einer Hand anbieten. „Wir sind regional mit Europa, der NAFTARegion sowie dem asiatischen Raum und von den Branchen unserer Kunden her sehr breit aufgestellt.“ stellt Thomas Wildt fest.

Bei jedem Schritt, den die Hennecke GROUP unternimmt, steht der Nutzen für den Kunden an erster Stelle. Alle Gesellschaften werden außerdem so aufgestellt, dass sie sich in Zukunft im Sinne einer selbstlernenden Organisation den stetigen Marktveränderungen besser anpassen können. Wildt dazu: „Eine selbstlernende Prozessorganisation ist in der Lage, sich selber zu korrigieren und die richtigen Maßnahmen zu ergreifen, um auf dem geplanten Weg mit maximaler Effizienz in Prozessen zu operieren“. Die Umsetzung dieser Maßnahmen wird über vereinheitlichte Prozesse und Tools sichergestellt. Hierzu wurde das Hennecke Business System (HBS) weltweit im Management der Hennecke GROUP ausgerollt. Mittels Prozessmapping und standardisierten Problemlösungsprozessen werden die Führungskräfte und Mitarbeiter der gesamten Hennecke GROUP geschult, um in Zukunft alle Projekte und Dienstleistungen termingerecht mit größtem Qualitätsanspruch zu realisieren.

Die Neuaufstellung mit Hennecke 2.0 wird in den globalen Märkten der Gruppe durch mehr Effektivität und Professionalität geprägt sein. Die Hennecke GROUP wird keine Geschäfte mit hohem Risikopotential eingehen: „Die Prozessorientierung erlaubt uns, etwaige technische und wirtschaftliche Risiken bereits frühzeitig zu erkennen, zu bewerten und gemeinsam mit unseren Kunden zu minimieren“, unterstreicht Wildt. In einem weltweiten wirtschaftlichen Umfeld, das zusehends von Unwägbarkeiten geprägt ist, ein weiterer wichtiger Garant für langfristigen wirtschaftlichen Erfolg in der Zukunft für die Hennecke GROUP.
