A century has passed since the first pages of our history were written - a fascinating look back at 100 years characterised by unforgettable events and ground-breaking developments.

A special anniversary

When a company celebrates its 100th birthday, it is never the achievement of one person, but of many. All those who have accompanied the path of our family business over the last 100 years – employees, customers and partners – have made our company what it is today. And we celebrate that all over the world.


“100 years of the Hehl family company is a very special success story. Although technology has been a key factor, people and the region have also played a particularly important role.”

Michael Hehl, Managing Partner & Managing Director, Plant Development, Spokesperson for the Management Team

“Our family company's centenary is an opportunity to reconcile the past and the future – in other words, to take pleasure in our successful past while also embracing the chances to position our company for the future.”

Juliane Hehl, Managing Partner, Marketing and Business Development
