MHF was founded in 1982 by Heribert Lücke as a new and second-hand machinery business for the woodworking and timber processing industry. As a demand for special machines corresponding to the increasing levels of specialisation in the production processes soon emerged, this was the starting point for the development of in-house production of individual machines and plants.
With the retirement of Heribert Lücke in 2003, the company was taken over by long-standing employees Dipl. Ing. (FH) Andreas Authmann and Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Norbert Mönnigmann. As managing directors, they focused the company’s strategic direction predominantly on mechanical engineering and project planning for complete systems.
