Back to the roots

More than holes and metal chips – the Alfra company history

At the beginning of the 20th century new standards of metalworking changed the German economy. A.H Mehring took his chance and founded our later sister company, Sägen-Mehring in Dresden. After World War 2, Gerhard Döring took over. Under his leadership Sägen-Mehring GmbH moved to Hockenheim. The city in northern Baden-Wuerttemberg is the location for our administrative headquarter today.

All for one

We want you to be pleased. It might sound plain, but this is exactly the reason, why we’re going to work every day. How we’re planning to achieve this goal? By avoiding the most dangerous enemy of contentment: complacency. Our antidote: Passion! We find solutions for the challenges you are defining for us – Your trust is our motivation.

Safety first! That applies for the quality of our products and services, too – starting with contemporary means of communication, fast logistics and a standard of quality, you can rely on. In cold print – certified in accordance to DIN ISO. Our potential: a committed staff, working tirelessly for our customers.

Our employees are our potential. That’s why we appreciate every colleague as a partner, supporting us to meet our most important challenge: the continuous development of the company. Flat hierarchies are self-evident, because the principal is leading the way, without elevating over others. Our reputation: 40 years of experience – including valued trading partners all over the world.

Every market has its own challenges. We love diversity. Therefore we are developing tools and machines making exhausting processing steps in your business unnecessary or much easier. That’s the basis for our product-ideas.

We manufacture at two production sites in Germany – we are proud of that. Inseparably linked with the quality of our products is a distinctive service. Our credo: We are happy to help you – solution-oriented and unbureaucratic. A distributer network, covering more than 100 countries, provides a smooth supply with our Alfra-developments.

Our sights are directed to the future – without forgetting our roots in the crafts. With pleasure and excitement we keep on facing new challenges.
