A History of Customer-Focused Growth and Advancements


Al Hanel founded the company as a prototype shop and quickly established a reputation for quality and on-time delivery. 


After steady growth, the shop incorporated.


Hanel moved to our current location, an industrial park outside Milwaukee, and grew our offering in hydraulic flow components—now specializing in turned parts including brake pistons, directional valves, and spools; but also block-shaped parts such as hydraulic manifolds and valve bodies. 


Hanel adopted a Lean Manufacturing U-shaped Work Cells model which enabled reduced work-in processes, lead times, late orders, scrap, direct labor, and workspace, but also ensured quality control.


Driv-Lok, a leader in fastening and joining components, acquired Hanel Corporation. By combining our platforms and expertise, we are increasing our focus on innovation to meet the growing and changing needs of our customers.
