For more than 60 years, our owner-managed company has been representing innovative and high-quality system solutions made of sheet metal. Here is a selection of our historical milestones.

Our company was founded by Heinrich Cremer on 4 March 1957 at Rheydt (Pongs). At that time, carding grid were among the primary products.

Einblicke in Produktion


In order to keep up with ever-increasing demand, a new production hall is built in 2000. It increases our production area to approximately 2,000 sqm.


Due to changes in textile machines, the manufacturing of carding grids is no longer needed, resulting in HCR producing the last carding grids in 2000.
