Bearingfoundry Hageman started in 1970 as a trading company of diesel engines. After a short period of time Hageman began to cast white metal bearings. At that time the repair businesses did the processing of the bearings themselves. After awhile however, Hageman bought its own machines, since the clients expected a total-product package.

To satisfy the increased demand of space Hageman had to move to another location.

Since 1994 Hageman is situated at the Laanstraat 32B in Soest.
