As a company of the CHIRON Group with production facilities in Neuhausen ob Eck near Tuttlingen, we are the retrofit specialist for the brands: CHIRON, STAMA and SCHERER. Founded in 2000, CMS, in close cooperation with the manufacturers, has modernized about a thousand machines so far, giving them a new life. Around 50 employees are involved in the retrofit.
In addition to the overhaul of machine tools on behalf of our customers and the execution of turnkey projects (for example, automation of a machining center), our range of services also includes the sale of retrofitted models (for example, from trade-ins).
Since our foundation by CHIRON, we have been renewing their innovative products so that you can keep the "Seconds Ahead" edge.
As a group service provider for manufacturers of vertical machining centers and turnkey solutions, we at CMS will continue to set the standards for high-speed cutting and high-speed manufacturing for the second, third or fourth life cycle of a machining center.
CMS wins over customers by
The CHIRON-Werke GmbH & Co. KG establishes CHIRON Maschinen Service, or CMS for short, as a subsidiary company for the modernization of its machine tools.
The first managing director is Crispin Taylor, who goes from CHIRON to the new company. He starts together with one service technician.
Towards the end of the year, CMS moves into its own premises. The side wing of a building in the "take off" industrial park, on the former military airfield of Neuhausen ob Eck, offers the company around 150 m² of production, storage and office space.
CMS is on a growth course. In January, Taylor hires additional employees, and three months later the company moves into an adjoining building. The production and office space grows to 400 m². As the space will soon no longer be sufficient, CMS expands its storage area to 150 m² in August.
Once again, CMS is reaching its limits with the existing production area. The building will be extended and a further 170 m² will be added.
The services and the quality of the CHIRON retrofits are well received by the customers. After less than three years, the company sells its one hundredth retrofitted machine.
In the same year CMS expands its storage space to 1,800 m². The company also uses a 200 m² hangar as an additional external warehouse.
CMS now also takes over the retrofit of STAMA's machining and milling turning centers.
Production is moving again on the site and can now be expanded to around 1,800 m².
CMS establishes the "Rapid Prototyping" department, which supports customers in the production of sample parts and offers production assistance while their machine is being overhauled or waiting for a new CHIRON or STAMA machine.
The retrofit service provider is growing again. CMS takes over an adjacent sheet metal shop and half the storage space of another building.
CMS celebrates its tenth anniversary.
A lightweight hall will create about 350 m² of additional outdoor storage space.
CMS has been in existence for 15 years. On an area of about 2,000 m², the company refurbish and modernizes around 55 machine tools per year. 45 employees ensure quality and precision in retrofitting.
At the EMO in Milan, CHIRON, STAMA, SCHERER and CMS will be appearing for the first time at a joint CHIRON Group stand.
CMS delivers its 1000th reconditioned machine
