Company history

The company was founded as a partnership by Lothar Herrmann, Gotthold Schur and Karl-Heinz Wenzelburger on 01.04.1974 when initially six colleagues exclusively produced and developed deep hole drills with soldered cutting heads. The conversion to a Ltd. under the current firm name followed in 1976.

Deep hole drills were specifically designed to achieve results in serial operation, which made the customary fine machining of the day, for example through drilling or grinding, redundant. Drilling to a similar level of quality had not been possible with any other tool in only one operation until then. At a time when industrial demand for deep and precise drilling was rapidly growing, this was a decisive advantage for a product to have.

The company has grown consistently since it was founded. Our range of products and services has expanded continously over the years while international sales and service centres had been established. 

Today botek is an internationally active deep hole drilling tool supplier with around 650 employees worldwide. Our core business is based on internally cooled tools for all deep drilling systems with diameters ranging from 0.5 to 1000 mm. The related experience in the field of deep hole drilling, accomparies our customers as part of our range of service before, during and after purchasing our tools.

botek is at the cutting edge of technology. The specialization of deep hole drilling tools and their processes are sucessfully continued in the second generation and since 2011 botek is a registered trademark in most countries.
