Ready for tomorrow with high-technology, international quality and an enlarged capacity in a brand new 55.000 m2 factory of which 25.000 m2 is under roof!
KANCA began its production of hand tools in the early 1960s as a family owned company with a workforce of 20. A short time later, as the quality of the products was well accepted by the market, the range expanded to cover a very extensive spectrum of hand tools.
A new plant of 15.000 m2 was constructed and began operation in 1974 where the expanded and modernized forging line made it also possible to supply high quality forged parts to the industry.
Since the beginning of the 1980s the demand from the automotive industry has lead the way to further increase the capacity in the forged parts production and supply higher quality parts to local OEMs as Fiat, Mercedes, Iveco, Ford and Renault.
During the 1990s, KANCA has become a reliable partner and indispensable source of supply to dozens of customers in the passenger, commercial and agricultural vehicles, defense, and construction industries. Starting a new cold forging line in 1997 had enabled KANCA to provide even wider range for metal forming.
Having all the necessary facilities such as part and tool design, production, forging, heat treatment and machining under the same roof has proven KANCA to be a single point of supply. Nowadays, also customers like VW Group, Toyota, TRW, Delphi, Bosch, ZF, Scania and many others have come to rely upon the renowned quality of KANCA.
In 2004, after finishing the construction of a brand new 55,000 m2 forging plant of that 25.000 m2 closed, Kanca moved to a new location, where it is now ready to supply additional capacity, which is over 20.000 tons annualy.
Being the only forging company that has succeeded such a big new investment in the region during the past couple of years, Kanca shows its intention of long term reliability to its forgings demanding customers.
Through modern QA techniques and the certifications according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 and ISO TS 16949:2002, ISO 14001, Kanca ensures improved service and increased attention to the customers exact requirements. Over 50% of the forging parts are now exported, mainly to EU countries.
