HACO started in 1965 as a small Flemish family-owned business serving local industrial companies. Today, we are a group offering a full range of high-quality solutions, which are known around the globe. From professional woodworking, sheet metal working, and aluminum milling machines to machine controls and surfacing installations.
From the very beginning, our principal goal was to understand the needs and requirements of our customers and to provide for them better than anyone else does. When one of our clients has a special problem, we take pride in being able to come up with exactly the right solution. But this specialization has not kept us from diversifying.
Originally famous for our sheet metal and woodworking machines, HACO has become so much more than just a manufacturer of punching machines, bending machines and shears. Since the mid-nineties, HACO has evolved into a company that produces not only sheet metal machines, but also larger and more complex machines, like machining centers and lathes.
With the acquisition of Mubea Systems in 1996 and the take-over of FAT (Fabryka Automatow Tokarskich) from Poland in 1999, the HACO group was able to offer machines for the cutting and editing of very large profiles and parts.
