Who Are We

Who Are We

Located in the southwest of France, in Cognac, STHIK was created in the middle of the 20th century.
In the last 40 years, STHIK has focused its activity on the development of wine trailers and reception hoppers, becoming the leading European manufacturer of wine lifting trailers.
This position was obtained by developing techniques specific to the constraints of harvest reception.

A word from the President

In 2001, when I took over the company STHIK, I was far from imagining what awaited me! Nor even the pleasure I would take in it given that there is no success without taking risks. We have proven to ourselves that with passion and commitment, we can achieve a lot.

There were barely fifteen of us at the time, and there are around thirty to date, designing and carrying out your increasingly technical, demanding and interesting requests.

With all these projects completed and all those swarming among our teams, the company STHIK is resolutely turned towards the future…

Because the wine world is in constant motion, we will support it for a long time to come with will and motivation!

Thank you for your constantly renewed trust!
