60 years of family tradition

Company founder H. Hagenbuch (b. 1901) dealt as a young engineer with oil hydraulics. At the time, specifically for the control of water turbines. As an independent engineer, he designed the early 50s special machines and presses with hydraulic drive. This he usually had to develop itself as there was no market for hydraulic components. The production took over usually minor mechanical workshops. However, since the necessary quality could not be achieved, founded my grandfather in 1955, the company Hydro H. Hagenbuch. This laid the foundation of today's Hagenbuch Hydraulic Systems AG was laid.

In 1964 my father Heinrich Hagenbuch in the second generation, take over the management of the company. To meet the growing customer requirements in engineering industry, the drives were increasingly associated with electronic components. This enabled the hydraulic to open up completely new areas of application. In the 80 years the company has developed more and more into a system manufacturer. New technologies had to be connected to the hydraulic system. So was supplemented in particular in the field of control and instrumentation technology engineering team with young specialists.

Another leap in technology was in the 90s. Software solutions for the completion of the offer of complete drive systems and solutions with integrated. Today we are able to develop customized solutions for complex tasks, and to provide all the elements from one source and also to take into operation. The spectrum ranges from special hydraulic components via customizable cylinders, aggregates, etc., to very large hydraulic equipment including control and process control. For specific market segments, such as hydraulic test stands, we offer complete testing machines from single-axis drive to complex 6-DOF systems.

In 2000, the entire service area has been summarized together with our store in an independent, flexible service center. With the aim to provide our clients even after commissioning of their plants a quick and comprehensive support. As a third generation since 1996, I have now been working in the company and look forward to the future with optimism. Thanks to a great innovation and a highly motivated team, we gladly accept the challenges ahead. In preparation for the next decade, we modernized our company name in mid-2018 and are now called Hagenbuch Hydraulic Systems AG. We see the visionary Hagenbuch Hydraulic Systems AG as a competence center for components and drive systems of medium to high complexity and a provider of innovative solutions.
