Our path to the future

Our goal is long-term, sustainable growth. Today, HOERBIGER is broadly positioned in various industries with a clear intention to take a market-leading role in the respective business areas. We will continue to adhere to this in the future and further develop today's business fields and establish new business fields, both organically and through M&A activities. Many of our traditional businesses are undergoing fundamental change. We are facing up to the challenges in order to actively shape change in the coming years.

Strategy Map
Actively shaping change

In order to successfully shape the change, we will orient ourselves even more consistently to the requirements of our customers and markets. Our values, our rules of conduct, and our striving for sustainability - supported by the HOERBIGER Foundation, which enables us to plan and act for the long term - serve as a solid foundation for this.

In addition, as a Group we create the conditions for change. In doing so, we rely on our four enabling platforms of customer-centric innovation, talent management, digitalization, and operational excellence.
