MAFELL’s only production facility is in Oberndorf am Neckar. This commitment to quality made in Germany is further illustrated by a vertical range of manufacturing that covers as much as 85% of its output, and by the company’s own toolmaking operation.

From injection moldings to high-performance motors, from design to assembly, and from toolmaking to quality assurance: MAFELL quality is founded on the deployment of our key skills in an exemplary, process-overarching and high-tech manufacturing operation in Oberndorf. This approach enables us to respond quickly to emerging needs.


Here at MAFELL, we often adopt a new approach in our quest to develop better machines. We take a fresh look and reconsider the crucial aspects of the tool concerned. And we always give due consideration to the future needs of the woodworking trades.

Time and again, together with outstanding material and build quality, our strategy spawns astounding solutions. We thus continuously enhance functionality and user-friendliness, for example. We strive to ensure that, while you are working, you no longer need to give the tool a second thought. Simply because MAFELL has already done the thinking for you. You focus on your job – and as far as everything else is concerned:

Creating excellence

The roots of HOLZMANN and ZIPPER are reaching back as far as into the year 1886. Back then Johann Schörgenhuber sen. with a very few employees founded his smithery in Haslach.

A few years later Johann Schörgenhuber jun. took over the smithery from his father and started with the trading of various products too. The foundation for a successful trading company was thus laid.

1995 Klaus Schörgenhuber and his partner Erich Humer brought the trademark “HOLZMANN” to life and ventured with their woodworking and metalworking machinery the big step into the international market.

In 2008 Daniel Schörgenhuber and Gerhard Rad founded the Company “ZIPPER”. The two brands were able to successfully establish themselves on the global market.

As of today, the corporate group is one of the global players in the field of machinery and workshop equipment.
