Founded in Tübingen, Germany, HORN has been developing and producing leading-edge grooving, side-turning and slot-milling tools since 1969. Their products are used by automotive, general engineering, aerospace, hydraulics, pneumatics, jewelry and medical equipment manufacturers. Its North American subsidiary, Horn USA, was established in Franklin, Tennessee, in 1997.
Tired of renting space that didn’t serve the company’s manufacturing needs, Horn USA called on Gresham Smith in 2018 to design a new 112,000-square-foot manufacturing plant and headquarters for its North American operation in Franklin, Tennessee. Boasting a contemporary aesthetic accented by clean lines synonymous with the German manufacturer’s brand, the new facility effectively supports the firm’s requirements for production, storage and shipping, as well as its administration staff.
