The Felss Group
The partner for resource-efficient cold forming solutions.
Felss was founded in 1905 to process high-quality materials in a resource-efficient way using its own machines. Since then, it has developed into the international Felss Group and has become an essential solutions provider in the field of cold forming tubes and solid materials – in the automobile industry, the entire mobility sector and other industries. With the acquisition of the HMP companies in 2019, Felss gained additional rolling technologies for processing a wide range of materials.

Experience in Innovation: Our History
The Smarter Way of Forming
The history of the Felss Group
The brothers Julius and Otto Felss found the Gebr. Felss company for special machinery for metal working in Pforzheim.
Production of the first rotary swaging and reduction machines commences.
Klaus Kienhöfer takes over the Gebr. Felss company and starts directing the company’s operations.
Felss builds the world’s first automatic rotary swaging transfer system.
The sustained expansion of the company requires a new factory building and the move to Königsbach-Stein.
The founding of Felss Rotaform AG in Switzerland marks the birth of the Felss Group. Rotary swaging parts are offered for the first time throughout Europe in job order production.

The first fully automatic multilevel press transfer system for expanding and narrowing tubes is delivered. The new axial forming product line is thus inaugurated.
The constantly increasing demand for rotary swaging parts from job order production enables the new factory building and the move from Königsbach-Stein to Bretten-Gölshausen.
Felss Rotaform LLC is founded in Wisconsin (USA) and enriches the Felss Group as the first international member outside of Europe.
The Felss Burger GmbH in Nesselwang is a new member of the Felss Group. Felss Burger develops and builds machines, as well as automated, highly flexible production systems.
The internationalization of the Felss Group continues. The Felss Rotaform Precision Components (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. is founded in Wujiang (China).
The first fully automatic rotary swaging system without hydraulics is introduced: The Generation E symbolizes the constant further development of Felss products and marks the beginning of a new system philosophy.
The internationalization of the Felss Group continues. Felss Rotaform S.R.O. is founded in Ilava (Slovakia). That same year, the Swiss holding company CAPVIS acquires the majority of the Felss Group.
