HistoryEdit

HEPCO was established and registered in 1972, with the intention of assembly & production of heavy equipment.[1] In 1975 HEPCO resumed operation in its premises in Arak consistory of 1000,000 square meters of land & 40,000 square meters of production hall in collaboration with licencors; namely :

Navistar International, Dynapac, Poclain, Sakai Heavy Industries and Lokomo

In 1984, HEPCO development project was designed in collaboration with Liebherr & Volvo companies, aiming at fabrication of steel structures of construction equipment.

The project recalled for construction of a 60,000 square meter hall and installation of numbers of modern cutting, welding and milling machines, capable of production 2100 units of equipment, in the first phase. In 1993, HEPCO Engineering & Parts was established, enabling HEPCO to produce more parts and component locally (other that steel structures).

As there was ample capacity in fabrication hall, from 1996 on the Company gradually engaged in fabrication of parts and components for industrial projects, as power stations, oil, gas and petrochemical complexes, portal cranes, etc. The capabilities thus gained, was later consolidated in a new Company in 2002 Energy Equipment Production Co. (Teta), fully owned by HEPCO. Today, HEPCO, together with its subsidiaries, and in collaboration with its world partners is active in production, supply and support of construction, mining and industrial projects.
