Feintool invests in the growth market of e-mobility
With its acquisition of the German company Stanz- und LaserTechnik Jessen GmbH, Feintool is expanding its strategic areas of business alongside fineblanking and forming by developing the market for electric vehicle components. The newly acquired technical expertise will be expanded first in Europe, and then globally.

With this acquisition, Feintool is pursuing its strategy consistently and creating a further technological pillar at the same time. Thus, Feintool is consolidating its position as an automotive supplier and offering its customers global solutions for electric vehicles too, in addition to hybrid and combustion engines.

Stanz- und LaserTechnik Jessen GmbH in brief
It was back in 1879 that entrepreneur G. Fuhrmann began producing iron and metal goods on the company’s current site. The location of Jessen can therefore look back on a long tradition of metalworking. In 1960 the company began specializing in punching electrical sheet parts, and the first stator and rotor sheets were produced.

From 1993 onwards, the company established punch-packing, while in 2008 laser-cutting was introduced as another process for the production of high-precision electrical sheet parts in the thin-sheet segment. Stanz- und LaserTechnik Jessen GmbH serves customers operating in areas such as automobile production, renewable energies, industrial robots, and transport.

The company now considers itself a specialist supplier of sheets and packages and provides all the services and products relating to electrical sheet parts, starting with pilot production and continuing through all the advisory services required for complex projects, ultimately concluding in series part production.
The site in Jessen employs two-hundred people including six trainees within two factory halls.
