Company history

Mockel’s story begins in 1947 in the Belgian town of Eupen. The newly founded mechanical workshop initially specialised in servicing machines and producing mechanical components for the regional textile industry.

Over time, the company expanded into more and more areas of business. These included defence in the 1970s, aviation in the 1980s and the hydraulic sector in the 1990s. More followed in the subsequent years. Today, Mockel is also active in innovative areas like energy, e-mobility and medical engineering.

Since 2017, the company has been managed by Annabelle Mockel. Her father Robert Mockel continues to contribute his experience as Chairman of the Board. We constantly invest in our production processes, so that we can maintain the best levels of quality, efficiency and customer satisfaction on the market.

Mockel 4.0

We have successfully mapped all of our departments in our ERP system. We also work with a central tool management system. The ERP system also contains our machine running times, which are imported using captors.

Our next goal is paperless production. In future, every workstation will have its own tablet computer that also map work plans. This will enable QA in real time, while simplifying and accelerating our production process.
