Facts / History

The ‘Otto Littmann Maschinenfabrik Präzisionsmechanik GmbH’ was founded in 1945 by Otto Littmann. In 1965, the precision manufacturing company moved from its original site in Winterhude, Germany, to its current location in Langenhorn near Hamburg.

Today, we have a staff of 40 highly qualified employees who use state-of-the-art machine tools to manufacture precision parts on a 1,500 m² large shop floor. Our focus is on mechanical engineering and on the manufacture of individual components in small and medium series. Our expertise from over 60 years of experience in handling all kinds of materials and geometries makes us uniquely qualified to offer you the best solutions.

On January 1st 2008, the ‘R. Spitzke Oberflächen- und Galvanotechnik GmbH & Co KG‘, a surface coating and electroplating firm, joined our group of companies. Spitzke is a specialist in the field of wear and corrosion protection. The company offers tailored solutions for a variety of issues, from advice on surface problems to conventional coatings (e.g. hard chrome and electroless nickel) to implementing new applications.

Thanks to the collaboration between these two companies, Otto Littmann can optimally complement surface coatings during the pre- and post-processing phases, especially with the help of its state-of-the-art grinding technologies. We can also manufacture entire components from a single source for you.
