With a family history of more than 300 years in oven building, Thomas Heuft hardly needs to introduce himself when meeting other German oven manufacturers. He represents the 8th generation at the helm of the family business, which over time grew from a local oven builder to a global player in baking plant manufacturing. Thomas Heuft has always remained rooted in the Eifel region and supports the area in whatever way he can. He believes that German craftsmanship will always be appreciated and actively assists young people in entering the trade. His approach has been highly successful. While many companies suffer from high staff turnover, Heuft workers remain loyal to their employer. In many cases, Heuft has been employing several generations of the same family.
