A benchmark in threading solutions 03 August 2022

This year Heroslam is celebrating 80 years at the forefront of the design and manufacturing of thread rolling tools, exporting its quality tools to fastener producers worldwide.

Heroslam manufactures a wide range of thread rolling tools including flat, cylindrical and planetary dies. These dies are produced from beginning to end at the company’s in-house facilities, which also includes heat treatment and coating – giving the tools an extra quality and guarantee.

Alberto Gabika, commercial director at Heroslam, explains: “At Heroslam we currently export more than 80% of our production and thanks to our extensive commercial network, we have loyal customers in more than 35 countries. Our motto – ‘Long life thread rolling tools’ perfectly describes the most important foundations of our project, which is the exceptional quality and durability of our thread rolling tools.”

“Our international vision has given us the opportunity throughout our history to deepen into the particularities of different industry sectors such as the automotive, aerospace, construction, energy, and nail manufacturing, among others, offering as a result a high-level of specialisation that allows us to provide customised solutions to the specific needs of our customers.”

Heroslam started in 1942 as a family business and in 1973 it became the first employee-owned company in Spain. Today Heroslam remains under this management model, where 90% of its staff are also shareholders of the company.

We truly believe that our most important asset is our people, the team of professionals that make Heroslam. A multidisciplinary team of highly qualified professionals with extensive experience in the fastener tooling industry and strongly committed to our values - professionalism, teamwork, continuous improvement and excellence in what we do,” explains Alberto.

Our goal is to continue at the forefront of the industry in terms of quality, precision and durability through research and development of new materials and coatings, as well as new manufacturing technologies and a clear commitment to digitising our processes through Industry 4.0 strategies. At Heroslam we will continue to work to consolidate our position as one of the leading manufacturers of thread rolling tools in the world.”
