Origin

Trendsetter – for Decades

In 1895, Hanns Hörbiger invented an innovative valve for compressors.

The HOERBIGER steel plate valve overcame all the disadvantages of valve designs that were common at the end of the 19th century. It was a unique selling proposition.

Many inventions have fallen into oblivion despite impressive unique selling propositions. Many company inceptions did not remain competitive in the long run despite initial success.

Not so at HOERBIGER: the company has managed to remain successful over decades. Throughout the company’s history, HOERBIGER has repeatedly been a trendsetter, set performance benchmarks with innovations, and changed the rules of the game in the market.

“For more than 110 years, the history of HOERBIGER has been shaped by people who are committed to performance, by technological pioneering spirit, by demonstrating courage, and by being close to the markets and customers."
