It All began here...
Here is where it all began
At the onset
In 1949, a year after the founding of the State of Israel; in the times when a road was still a distant dream, dunes reigned in the country, and the local economy was still in its infancy; alongside the enemy’s shelling and the surrounding threats; a small dream of one family began to materialize.
The 50’s – The late David Berger emigrated with his family from Czechoslovakia, carrying with him a dream – to build a metal industries factory , which will serve the entire industry, and will answer the customers’ needs with dedication, courtesy, accuracy and efficiency. Early on, the factory employed ten workers, who provided a range of support to the Israeli agricultural industry in its early stages. Little by little, the company evolved, increased the number of its customers, expanded its operation and recruited additional professionals.
During its forty years of operation, the company has undergone many changes, along with the changes that the young state was experiencing; until the year of 1989, when the subsidiary company, Agrotop, was founded, as a company which provides special structures for the poultry industry and for the general industry. In subsequent years, the cooperation between Hapach Metal Industries and the Agrotop company, had positioned the company at the top of the list of leading companies in this field.
During these years, Hapach Metal Industries gained international reputation, and began exporting its products to overseas farms. The international activity included the construction of large-scale projects; the planning, designing and manufacturing of advanced systems, and the execution of large projects in the foreign customer’s site.
In 2001 the company was acquired by Nahum Henkin, who preserved the company’s familial and Zionist character, the high moral values, the precision and the meticulous care which remained since the founding of the State, adding to it the innovation, the high efficiency and the advanced technology of the 2000’s.
During these years the company moved into its huge new facilities, in Moshav Timurim, by Kiryat Malachi, in the southern region of Israel. The factory was equipped with the latest machinery; and constant improvement and quality control procedures were implemented concerning the factory’s technological possibilities.
2017 – Nahum Henkin of blessed memory.
