    "Mechanical Engineering in Saxony"

    Saxony can justifiably call itself the cradle of German mechanical engineering. For about 200 years now, machine tools as well as textile and printing machines made in the region have been in great demand around the globe.

We support Saxony.

Prof.  Dr. Hans J. Naumann

Managing Partner, NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group

„We selected Chemnitz as our corporate headquarters and, thus, also the headquarters of the NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT holding company because we wanted to send a clear signal that the NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group has its decision-making center in Saxony."
