In 1898, the specialists from Chemnitz commenced with the construction of high-precision milling machines under the brand name Wanderer. After the Second World War, the factory was given the name of the working-class politician Fritz Heckert. Since 1998, the Heckert plant in Chemnitz has been a part of the Swiss Starrag Group, a globally leading provider of machining centers and technological production systems.
