Hendrickson Poland Sp. z o.o. was established as Pol-Necks in 1993, with the Polish employees (in whole) and the Swedish capital. In 2000 we were the first to change the way of thinking about U-bolts in Europe and by means a machine invented by us we started their cold-forming. Only after three years we produced the first hot-formed U-bolt, as a natural consequence of extending of our portfolio of products. Moreover, we established metallographic and strength-testing lab.
A mile-stone in operation of our company was the year 2004. This was the time when we implemented the standard ISO/TS 16949:2002. We activated the line for bending, forging and quenching. What else? The production reached 1 000 000 U-bolts. A year later we started coating in Dacromet® technology, and as the only producer of U-bolts in Europe we had it all in a technological process “in one house”, so we did not have to use the subcontractors.
In 2007 the company was reconstructed. We became a part of Frauenthal Automotive. This was the time when we started to manufacture other products than U-bolts, namely bolts and pins. We successively implemented new standards: ISO 14000: 2004, OHSAS 18001: 2007. In 2010 our production reached the level of 2 000 000 U-bolts. We launched a broad-scale investment programme, by way of replacing of the entire machinery stock, and we invested in optimizing of processes and our production capacity. In 2012, we changed the name to Frauenthal Automotive Toruń Sp. z o.o. The following years were a further development in terms of increasing the range of products, activities in subsequent industry sectors and the number of clients. In May 2018, we became part of the Hendrickson group, and from September 26, we operate under the new company name Hendrickson Poland Sp. z o.o.
