History of HAUSE MACHINES
In 1933 Ralph Hause and A.C. Brammer formed a partnership and called it “Hause Valve Company” to manufacture valves used in underground oil well equipment. In the following ten-year period, the product line was expanded to include complete oil well pump assemblies with the trademark “Moroil”.
After the death of A.C. Brammer in 1940, his son Eugene in 1942, and a fire which destroyed the plant in 1943, the manufacture of oil field equipment was discontinued. The plant was partially rebuilt and operated by Ralph Hause as a sole proprietorship, doing production machine work to order. The Hause Valve Company was incorporated in 1947 and
continued to expand its facilities for production machine work.
Development of the present “Holomatic” product line was started in 1952 and a second company “Hause Machines, Inc.” was organized in 1953 and incorporated in 1957 to market this equipment. The term “Holomatic” is a registered trade name that identifies the patented power feed unit design principles. These units are used to drive a wide variety of end working tools in manufacturing. The capacity, range and versatility of this concept has made possible the
development and sale of complete production machines.
After the death of Ralph Hause in 1976, Hause Machines, Inc. was owned and operated by eight shareholders. Because a number of these eight shareholders were approaching retirement, they decided to collectively sell their shares and put Hause Machines, Inc. under new ownership.
In July of 1987, James Smythe of Toledo acquired the majority interest in
Hause Machines, Inc. After 18 years of ownership, Mr. Smythe decided to sell the machine
tool business and devote more time to his security business.
James Fruchey and Robert Brubaker, both existing employees of the
company, purchased the assets of Hause Machines, Inc. in July of 2005.
Mr. Fruchey was then the CEO and Mr. Brubaker the GM, continued the history of specialty machine and Holomatic units.
In 2015, Mr. Fruchey retired, and his portion of the company was purchased by Mr. Brubaker. The
company will continue to operate as Hause Machines to maintain the 89 year history of quality products at a reasonable price. Since that time, the company has expanded its offerings to include automation, job shop machining, and other specialty machines.
