Hermle North America
Welcome to Hermle. We build beautiful clocks.
In 1977, Hermle Black Forest Clocks located in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains manufactured and shipped its first Hermle mechanical movement on US soil. It was the beginning of how the modern era of the clock industry was going to proceed. Hermle supplied many of the existing clock case goods manufacturers with our sought after German quality mechanisms.
Many of our customers received training of our expertise in assembly of their case goods. Naturally, in the early 1980’s, we were asked to assemble our movements into our customers cases which then became a staple of our production line.
In 2002, we opened our doors to the clock retail industry with Hermle branded clocks assembled in our factory in Amherst and a selection of German made Hermle clocks. After 6 expansions to our factory, we continued our growth as not only the world’s leader in clock mechanisms, but as an alternative clock source to the retailers of North America.
Our innovations in design, form and function keep us ahead of the curve and our meticulous quality improvements have made Hermle North America the preferred clock source to our industry.
Hermle Black Forest Clocks was rebranded as Hermle North America in January 2011 to signify the next step into the future. Hermle North America will become a one-stop shop for all genuine Hermle products, including carrying the largest Hermle and Urgos movement selection available to the trade in the world. Our clock movements, clock accessories, clock parts and clocks are distributed throughout North America to a vast dealer network. To find your local Hermle dealer, please contact us by clicking Here.
More recently, in our continuous efforts of developing the Hermle North America program we purchased and moved the Art of Time wood manufacturing facility from Canada. We are proud to generate new local manufacturing jobs from a rich historical region involved in the wood trade. This is an exciting time for us to serve our customers with cases manufactured and built in Virginia.
