Who We Are

With a direct view of one of the numerous historical castles Hermann Maschinenbau GmbH is based in the famous Middle Rhine Valley.


Inspired by the region’s rich historical heritage, exclusive ceremonial cannons are being manufactured in the owner-managed company. Which, through the use of modern manufacturing techniques, brings together the optics and the technology of historical international saluting cannons with the needs of our time.

Our Guiding Principle: Modern Tradition


For hundreds of years salutes have been fired, both on shore and at sea, as a sign of respect and welcome.


Whether for military, religious or civilian events - up till today the firing of saluting cannons is being used to mark special occasions.


Preserving this centuries-old tradition in a sophisticated manner for the future is the aim of our corporate philosophy.
