Company History

 

Helvét Kft. was established as a company in 100% Swiss possession in 1991 with the aim that it could deliver the top-quality Swiss and German cutting tools for the Hungarian industry.

These were the following:

 

- DIXI – hard metal tools
- MANIGLEY - threading tools
- RÖNTGEN – band-saws
- DENITOOL – inserts
- VALLORBE - HSS milling cutters, precision files

 

The product range has significantly changed since then, you can find the current product range under the menu item of products.

The persistence of the employed staff of the enterprise consisting of 2 persons, continuous participation in trade fairs lead to wider knowledge of the company and the distributed brand names despite that the Hungarian market underwent rearrangement of unprecedented extent during these years: increasing unemployment rate, insolvency, inadequate work supply, etc. afflicted the market participants.

In 1994 49% of the company got into Hungarian hands, and the continuous development slowly started, which has gone on up to this day. Its basis was constituted by continuous development of the economic situation, regional division of the country by sales representative; as well as making the following strategic decisions.
