To accommodate a CNC showroom an expansion to the existing facilities was eminent.

Launched the first Heinman Machinery web site.
To keep up with the changing technology, every two years the TIMTOS Taipei International Machine Tool Show is attended to meet with the engineers of the manufacturers.
In lieu of open houses Heinman started to exhibit every two years at CMTS Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show at the International Centre - Toronto.
With technology steadily progressing, there was a need to launch a new web site with a true representation of the array of models our manufacturers build and Heinman proudly represents.
