The company


Cooperative and partnership-based collaboration with the customer for the best results

As a subsidiary of TECHTORY Automation GmbH, a company that has been in existence for 30 years and is constantly expanding due to its success, we are taking over its sales in the area of the production of high-quality manufacturing parts.

The parent company was founded in 1986 by Joseph Carus-Lacolade as a pure design office and was transformed into Techtory GmbH in 1992. Today, the companies are managed by the two sons of the company founder, Yannic Carus-Lacolade and Patrik Carus-Lacolade, the second generation.

We realize turned, milled and wire-cut parts as individual parts or in series, as well as their optional assembly into modules, economically and efficiently. Our parent company has all the equipment required for machining and assembly.

An active quality management system ensures that all processes run smoothly and that documentation is complete.


Precision and quality in series

The production of sophisticated turned, milled and wire-cut parts as well as efficient assembly production is our world.

With our modern CNC machining centers and automation equipment, we manufacture high-quality and complex turned parts with a high proportion of milled parts as well as pure milled parts economically as individual parts or in series.

On request, we can complete your series parts into high-quality, quality-tested assemblies, making us your expert partner for outsourcing.

Methodology and expertise – focusing on the goal

In order to be successful in the long term, we rely on state-of-the-art, high-performance machinery and, in particular, on the skills of our employees.

We leave nothing to chance. That is why every process is systematically scrutinized.

This enables us to achieve stable, highly efficient manufacturing processes and guarantee cost-effective production of your series parts and a reliable supply of high-quality finished parts at all times.

The satisfaction of our customers is the driving force behind our actions

Our expertise in series production results in high-quality products. Products with which our customers operate successfully on the market.

Our knowledge and skills have helped us to build a very satisfied customer base and have led us to steadily growing success.

This success, the knowledge of our skills and a cooperative partnership with customers and suppliers give us the daily incentive to achieve even more.

Technology that inspires

We create solutions at the highest level through our passion for technology, expertise and innovative spirit.

With our own automation, we optimize the efficiency of our production to the highest level.

From feasibility studies to logistical precision work, from process design to the individual production steps to quality assurance, we are interested in every detail.

The value of a company is not determined by buildings and machines, nor by its banknotes. Only the people who work for a company and the spirit in which they do it are valuable.

Quote from “Nordhoff, Heinrich”
