In March 2015, THIELE widened their range of products by taking over Richard Hippenstiel GmbH, a manufacturer of drive systems and corresponding components. Richard Hippenstiel GmbH was founded 1911 as a foundry and since became a globally recognized leader in the world of underground longwall mining.
By connecting two traditional, well-established German companies THIELE is now able to provide a complete system for chain conveyors. This ensures that chain and sprocket are ideally matched to one another.
