About Us

Die-Forgings, professionel expertise & flexibility

ETI Tempelmann – a brand in the market. It has stood for reliability for over 30 years now and is directly associated with the term track rail materials by many market participants. Continuously growing experience distinguishes us from other providers today. The constant development of quality management makes ETI Tempelmann and our HPQ suppliers a strong partner also for Deutsche Bahn with Q1 certification.

Our company was founded in 1987 in Hagen (NRW) as a technical wholesaler for drop forged products under the name ETI Eugen Tempelmann Industriebedarf. In the course of the generation change in 2002, the company was renamed ETI Tempelmann GmbH & Co. KG. Since April 2nd, 2019, Roman Hodinar has taken over the business of ETI Tempelmann GmbH & Co.KG as the new managing partner.  

As a leading company in our market segment, we can look back on more than 30 years of company history. Over time, we have specialized in the trade of drop forgings – here mainly in products for track superstructure and switch construction.               

We also supply rolled and plastic products, as well as screws and mechanically processed turn out materials for these segments. Due to warehousing adapted to the needs of the market, we are usually able to deliver at short notice if required.

We currently deliver to many European countries beyond the German market. On request, our products are manufactured according to drawings by European State Railways, according to customer drawings, as well as according to standard drawings, and all of them are checked by our QA according to internal specifications. We have been a Q1 supplier to Deutsche Bahn AG since 1998.

Drop forgings are manufactured with unit weights of 0.05 kg to 25 kg from all common materials.

Our standard range includes various clamping plates, rib plates, flat plates, insulating plates, lining pieces, rail connecting plates, hook and sleeper screws, a large number of switch parts according to DB drawings, as well as special clamping plates, clamping plates for steel and pipeline construction (DIN 3568 and others), crane rail clamping plates and much more.
