Tradition of Innovation

An innate passion for machinery and plant construction has dominated the history of the Henkel family for generations. The founders of the EPC Group are proudly looking back to more than 140 years of engineering tradition. As shown by old documents, the Henkel family machinery was awarded prizes at a number of exhibitions back as early as 1894.

Almost a century later, the EPC Group has been founded: as EPC Engineering Consulting GmbH in Rudolstadt. Finally, after the reunion of Germany, the success story was continued from its roots. By founding other companies, EPC Group steadily expanded its business portfolio. Worldwide.

The new generation of the Henkel family responsibly faces their tradition for the future. The combination of years of experience and a great dose of enthusiasm for engineering challenges guarantees the best solution for every client's needs.
