As many of you know, Uwe zum Hingst, the
founder of Zum Hingst Technologies Inc., passed away in
June. Uwe is deeply missed by all of us at ZHT. In recognition
of my father’s legacy, I would like to inform you
of our new organizational structure.
In keeping with Uwe’s sound business practices, a
succession plan for the management of Zum Hingst Technologies
was implemented several years ago. Having worked side-by-side
with my father since joining the company in 1985, my operational
responsibilities at ZHT have continually increased, becoming
Vice-President in 2010 and Acting-President in 2012. I assumed
the role and responsibilities of President in June 2013.
Founded in 1977, Zum Hingst Technologies pioneered CNC machining
in British Columbia. Beginning with one computer-linked
Excello machine, ZHT has evolved through a continual investment
in innovative machining technology and maintains a strong
standing in the high-precision machining sector of Western
The company’s philosophy and goal are the same today
as they were 36 years ago - to develop long-standing relationships
with our customers, suppliers and employees through innovation,
creativity, and a commitment to continual improvement. This
commitment is supported by a certified quality assurance
Certified to ISO 9001:2008 + AS9100C quality assurance standards,
the ZHT team proudly manufactures parts for the aerospace
sector, and is active in the optical and medical sectors.
Our production framework supports an active milling and
turning department, providing three- to five-axis CNC machining
services to Canada, the USA and internationally.
As President, I shall continue to maintain the excellence
our customers have come to rely on. Our diverse personnel
gives us strength in every stage of production, from early
supplier involvement to planning and production. Supported
by a skilled administrative and machining team with decades
of combined experience I, like my father, shall remain actively
involved in the management, production and quality systems
of the company.
I thank you all for your many years of support and business
and look forward to our joint successes of the future. If
you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact
me by phone or email.
