Hegas was founded as a company in 1988. The focus was in the beginning mostly on supplying raw materials and cutting tools for the woodworking industry. The business grew from day one and after 4 years it was time to extend the selection of goods and woodworking machinery and related things became an important part of the business.

The core business is still the same, i.e. providing solutions for the woodworking industry. The most important policy of the company is to give a good all-round service to the customers and to maintain a comprehensive know-how of the products offered.
