hawo Competence Center (CC) at production site in Obrigheim

Top 100 Worls Market Leader


As a globally active company, we felt it important right from the start to stay on the ball with our products. This included early thoughts of exports, permanent market monitoring, continuous improvement processes and future-focused innovations.

All of our innovations are geared towards our customers‘ requirements. We insist on precise functionality and maximum ergonomics - and of course the highest possible safety and quality standards. This is also reflected in our multiple awards as one of the 100 most innovative SMEs in Germany, as well as being once again crowned the “German world market leader”.

Social Responsibility


As a global company, we have valued and acted on our social responsibility for many years. In our local area, the Neckar-Odenwald, we are a long-term supporter of targeted promotion of young talents. In addition, we are committed to the worldwide improvement of hygienic standards – for example in Cambodia. For our social commitment, especially providing and training the use of sterile barrier systems and for our activities in our home country, we have been repeatedly honoured with the German award for “social commitment”.

For almost 50 years, we have been manufacturing our products exclusively in Germany and we are committed to preserving and expanding Germany as a place of business and production.

As well as safeguarding jobs and expanding our production facilities at two manufacturing sites in southern Germany, we are a family company who want to make a contribution to safeguarding and strengthening the future of our local economy. This is why we specifically encourage newcomers and why our training places are regularly filled.



hawo products are sold worldwide in over 100 countries. In 2017 a representation office was opened in Chicago for the US-market and in 2018 an office for the Asian market (ASIA) was opened in the German Center in Singapore.
