Our Forge

As Hammerschmiede Jäckel Essen GmbH we are a young company with a long tradition. Founded in 2018 but with more than 60 years of experience we establish ourselves on the market. When taking over the business premises we were able to keep many jobs and thus the knowledge of our employees.

We benefit from the many years of experience of our team in the manufacturing of all types of flanges and many other forged parts. Therefore we can continue to guarantee the excellent quality of our products. Our passion for forged parts drives us to manufacture the best possible products for you, thereby we can gain your trust and be a reliable partner to you.
