HANIK Associates was formed in 1983, by Mr. Heinz Nikles, for the main purpose of providing a Technical and Managerial Consulting service to the Gear Manufacturing and Machine Tool Industry. It has since grown into other market segments such as development of medical products, machine tool service, replacement parts and facility appraisals.

Heinz Nikles, born in Switzerland, educated in both Switzerland and the United States, started in the Machine Tool Industry as an engineer and worked in fields of metrology, gear development and general machine tool manufacturing.

In the early 1970’s, while employed at Illinois Tool Works, he advanced into the sales department as a Sales Engineer, Regional Sales Coordinator, and Regional Manager to the Sales Manager.

He left his employer in the 1980’s, while in the position of Product Manager for import products, to form HANIK Associates.
