Business as Usual – a Message from Patricia zum Hingst

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 Canada.

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 management system.

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.


Yours truly,

Patricia zum Hingst
