Second largest order in the history of h-kon.  


The Ravensburg equipment supplier and process developer h-kon has won another major order on the global electromobility market. h-kon is to provide tailored end-of-line test technology for a major US automotive supplier, for use at this supplier’s manufacturing plant in South Carolina. The order value is in the mid-seven figure range. This is the third order which this international automotive supplier has placed with h-kon for the US market.  

This southern German equipment supplier, founded in 2006, is one of the leading German companies in the field of the construction and design of assembly systems. For more than four years, h-kon has specialised in areas such as end-of-line test technology for battery modules and lithium-ion battery packs. In line with the continuous improvement in modern battery modules and systems, the related testing technologies and documentation requirements are likewise ever more demanding.  

Wide-ranging expertise and a spirit of innovation 

For Roland Arnold, CEO and joint partner in h-kon, the firm’s cooperation with this US automotive supplier represents much more than just a single order – together, the two companies intend to make an active contribution to sustainable mobility around the globe: “As important system suppliers of concrete, practical solutions, medium-sized companies like us have a key role to play in the mobility transformation. As a driver of innovation, we are making a decisive contribution to the energy transition. That is our mission at h-kon. And it is precisely in that spirit that we will fulfil this new order.”  

This order placed by the US supplier is the second-largest in h-kon’s history. The final test technology is to be delivered to South Carolina in just nine months. “Many of our design engineers have over 15 years of professional experience. This expertise – together with our spirit of innovation – enables us to realise even highly challenging solutions for our customers in a short period of time,” says Roland Arnold. He adds: “We intend to continue to focus on the industries of the future and will concentrate on end-of-line test systems.”  

Since 2020, h-kon has been majority-owned by the Schulz Group, a corporate group active in the technology sector, providing h-kon with access to its wide-ranging expertise in the fields of robotics and digital factory planning. In 2022, h-kon already won a record order with a volume of EUR 7.5 million. h-kon’s success story is now set to continue in 2023.
