SIMONSWERK, the nationally and internationally renowned company from Rheda-Wiedenbrück, has successfully developed hinge systems for doors, windows and conservatories for more than a hundred years of company tradition. The manufacturer has maintained its position as a market leader for high-quality hinges in the residential and heavy duty sectors. The company’s 500 or so employees have played their part in innovative product development and the manufacture and sale of the hinges under the motto “The right hinge for any application”.
With an extensive product range and many special customer solutions, SIMONSWERK covers almost every area where hinges are required. The company manufactures hinges for the wood, aluminium, steel, plastic and glass application areas. The usage areas include residential, heavy duty, exterior doors, windows and metalworking. Special solutions are also developed together with architects and application engineers. In order to maintain this sole differentiation feature, the company relies on continuous innovation cycles, a wide range of services and above all continuously monitored quality. Considerable value is also placed on the company’s distinctive service orientation with on-site training and assistance when the hinges are being processed. The sophisticated hardware technology for each hinge ensures that installation is problem free for processing companies. A comprehensive package of marketing and sales promotion measures are available to encourage sales. A multilingual product database provides specialist dealers, processing companies, architects and property developers with a facility for performing application-specific searches for hinge solutions. Comprehensive catalogues that are always kept up to date and topic-oriented brochures provide SIMONSWERK’s customers with a regular flow of information. This all results in well-engineered products at the highest level for demanding projects.
A dedicated team consisting of engineers, technicians and draftsmen works hand in hand in the continuous development of product innovations. The objective is to continuously expand SIMONSWERK's pioneering role in the design, functionality and processing areas. Door hinges are becoming more and more of an independent design object that is not just there to fulfil a purpose. Many architects are consciously using the TECTUS hinge system in particular as a design element in the residential and heavy duty sectors. Service also plays an important part: The combination of comprehensive advice, competent application technology and the development of customer-specific solutions are decisive factors in SIMONSWERK’s innovation and quality leadership.
SIMONSWERK has also been gaining an international foothold since 1997 by establishing a subsidiary in Poland, which was closely followed by another in Great Britain. The foreign businesses have undergone major re-structuring under the management of the General Manager. SIMONSWERK now looks after about 60 foreign markets in Europe (France, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Hungary etc.), America (USA, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil etc.) and Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, UAE etc.).
