To mark the 125th company anniversary, HOERBIGER is supporting six food banks at selected company locations in Asia, Africa, North and South America with a total of 125,000 Euro. The employees of the Group have been able to take part in distributing the funds.
“Our company anniversary is a wonderful occasion to do good and to support people who need help,” said Dr. Jürgen Zeschky, CEO of the HOERBIGER Group. “In this difficult year, we would like to give something back to society and support regions of the world that are particularly hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic.”
Today, exactly 125 years ago, Hanns Hörbiger applied for a patent for his steel plate valve and thus laid the foundation for the HOERBIGER Group.
Hanns Hörbiger was born on November 29, 1860, in Vienna-Atzgersdorf, Austria, so this year is the 160th anniversary of his birth. The valve he invented led to enormous improvement in the performance of the compressors used at that time. It was thus one of the key technologies for industrial development at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1900 Hanns Hörbiger founded a design office in Budapest together with the engineer Friedrich Wilhelm Rogler. This office moved to Vienna in 1903, and in 1925 it became HOERBIGER & Co.
Today, we can hardly imagine the world of the late 19th and early 20th century – too much has changed since then. HOERBIGER has always been the master of its journey through the centuries: sometimes in calmer waters, but often – as is currently the case – against a headwind.
Our special thanks on this anniversary day go to all employees, business partners and friends of the HOERBIGER Group. Thank you for 125 years of commitment, performance and success. HOERBIGER has a solid foundation for an equally successful future. Let us tackle it together!
HOERBIGER has always given something back to society through social projects. In 2019, the decision was made to support a major aid project at Group level in addition to the many local commitments. The decision was made in favor of a cooperation with the Pestalozzi Children's Village Foundation: The project "Ler é Bom" - Reading is Good - aims to improve the schooling of children in Mozambique.
Ler é Bom aims to improve the reading and writing skills of pupils in grades 1 to 3 at 20 elementary school in the districts of Marracuene and Boane. HOERBIGER has supported the project since 2020 for a period of three years as sole sponsor.
Currently the schools in Mozambique are closed due to Covid19. Before classes can start again, special hygiene concepts must be introduced. Through the partnership with HOERBIGER, the schools received mobile washing stations as well as aid packages with soap and masks for the students and teachers.
Effective November 1, 2019, the HOERBIGER Group has acquired Deublin, a U.S.-based manufacturer of rotating unions. Deublin is a global leader in the area of rotating unions and has a worldwide footprint of manufacturing facilities and service locations. The family-owned business is headquartered in Waukegan, Illinois.
Deublin will be a new division in the HOERBIGER Group and will remain a stand-alone operating unit. “With HOERBIGER we have found a new home that offers exciting possibilities. Their long-term perspective, focused on people and the business, will allow us to grow and develop,” says Deublin President Ron Kelner. “Deublin is both a strategic and cultural fit for HOERBIGER. Together we have the ingredients for successful further development and stable growth,” concludes Dr. Juergen Zeschky, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board, HOERBIGER Holding AG.
After two years of construction, HOERBIGER officially opened its new site in the Urban Lakeside City of Vienna-Aspern on June 23, 2016. A total of around 500 employees from previously three different locations in Vienna will thus be accommodated in a shared building.
The optimized production at the new location will respond even more flexibly to the diverse requirements of HOERBIGER's customers. The special architecture creates a campus-like atmosphere on the 24,000 square meter development, production and administration complex.
The opening ceremony took place in the HOERBIGER Forum. Here visitors can experience the performance-determining components and services of HOERBIGER on a virtual journey through the application world.
In 2015, HOERBIGER began to build up a new business field through strategic acquisitions, which is oriented towards the market of industrial safety technology. At HOERBIGER, the brands IEP Technologies and Newson Gale stand for this. IEP is the system and service specialist for the entire process of explosion protection for applications involving dusts and gases. Newson Gale contributes know-how and decades of experience in the protection of plants against hazards caused by electrostatic charges.
The acquired companies complement the competence in relief and check valves that HOERBIGER has built up over decades. In 2019, the Safety Division achieved sales of 85.2 million Euro and employed 339 people.
