Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o., a member of the international Haberkorn Group, has been operating in the Czech market since 1994. It has succeeded in gaining a significant part of the Czech and Slovak industrial market in the field of the delivery of machine parts and components to industrial companies.
The company started its business, supported by the 100+ year long tradition of its predecessors, in a small office in Opava, Czech Republic. However, further development revealed its potential and abilities to establish itself in trade under the circumstances that dominated the then market.
In 1996, a central warehouse was built in Mokré Lazce near Opava. This facility has brought to our customers vast improvement in client service, particularly in terms of delivery rate, a broadened range of products, items on stocks and comprehensive auxiliary services.
In 2001, the company decided to offer its services to Slovak companies, which gave rise to a network of regional agents and dealers in the Slovak market.
Our mission is to be a reliable, flexible and innovative partner that helps its customers increase their prosperity.
Our philosophy is based on an orientation towards the customer and their needs. A team of engineers and salesmen focus on building a long-term partnership with our customers. In the framework of such collaboration, the company can offer its clients both the standard and specific solutions that are tailored to suit the needs of the clients, not only in the field of technical support, but also in logistics, delivery and development of special components, etc. Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. is simply a vital part of its customers’ success.
Such collaboration with our customers would not work without the careful selection of our suppliers, which are always required to guarantee top quality, reliability and logistic service. Our network of suppliers comprises world-recognised manufacturers, for the majority of which Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. works as an exclusive agent in the markets where it carries on its own business too.
Using state-of-the-art technologies in dealing with our suppliers and the opportunity to view their inventory level online is another advantage for our customers. We also call this “prompt info”. Transition from deliveries via our Austrian headquarters to those transferred directly from the suppliers allows us to make the product prices and lead times even more favourable. The lead times now range from 24 hours (for items in stock) to 10 days for standard catalogue items. Special goods are delivered within the agreed lead times.
Aimed at the improvement of its client service, the company has recently invested in a modern logistic system which allows even faster processing of individual orders.
Our original range of products, as presented by the company back in the first days of its existence, has expanded on the basis of specialist experience to form a range that reflects the demands and trends of the current market and enables our company to face the current competitive environment.
The range of products which has been presented from the very beginning of the company is the “item” - a modular system of aluminium profiles for the construction of single-purpose machinery. The manufacturer of the system is the German company of the same name, i.e. item Industrietechnik und Maschinenbau GmbH, for which Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. is the exclusive agent in the Czech and Slovak Republics. One of the main advantages of this system is the possibility to use standardised parts, which brings forth a nearly unlimited range of combinations and technical solutions, as well as easy handling and assembly. Precise aluminium profiles with longitudinal grooves allow repeated use and offer fast convertibility, high flexibility, and the achievement of the required strength and functionality while maintaining a low equipment weight.
Customers are primarily attracted (also in terms of price) by our machine frames, linear lines, machine covers, protective fencing, work benches, assembly lines and linear guidance systems. Thanks to long-term development carried out by Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o., our traditional range of products also includes many types of conveyors and conveying systems.
In 2006, the product line of protective fencing was supplemented with a steel system intended for the construction of protective safety fences and storage area fencing made by the Swedish company Axelent AB, for which Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. also works as an exclusive agent in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
During the year 2008, the range of our products was extended to include a hydraulic lifting system manufactured by the Swiss company Ergoswiss AG, for which Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. is also the exclusive agent within the Czech and Slovak Republics. In the year 2009, we incorporated into our product portfolio supplies for workshops and offices, manufactured by the Swiss company LISTA AG.
The second ever growing and attractive part of our product range is the so-called “machine elements”, i.e. mechanical drives and standardised parts. Within this range, the company provides its services both to the machinery manufacturers and end users. The clients primarily appreciate the comprehensive service, from the stage of technical specification through design and solution to the delivery of the equipment. This makes Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. an ideal partner predominantly in the field of drives (chain drives, belt drives, propeller shafts and trapezoid bolts). We also supply a wide range of standardised parts and clamping systems. In these components, Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. represents such renowned brands as e.g. IWIS – high strength chains, Gates – neoprene indented belts and V-belts, BEA – sprocket wheels, toothed wheels and belt pulleys, HALDER – standardised parts and clamping systems.
The newest assortment the company offers is a field of protective clothes and working equipments. The company wants to follow the successful tradition of its parents´ background in this branch. As well as in previous cathegories the company offers only quality items from well-tried producers and market leaders, e.g. 3M, Sperian, Uvex, Peltor (hard hats, respirators, goggles, earmuffs), KCL, Ansell (gloves), Stoko, Kimberly-Clark (hand hygiene, dispensers), Steitz Secura, Abeba, Z-Style (working shoes) or Planam (safety clothes).
Apart from the large capacity of its distribution depot in Mokré Lazce, an integrated range of products, a well established selling network and the proficiency of technical and business consultants, the company also offers technical consulting for its entire range of products, assistance in project implementation and on-site solutions. This all makes Haberkorn Ulmer s.r.o. a solid partner for those who build their development on innovation, swiftness and reliability.
