In the market for construction components, more and more gates, doors, frames and operators carry the Hörmann name, making Hörmann Europe's leading provider of such products.
This leadership of the family company has been attained through decades of continuous growth as a result of innovation, ensured quality and proximity to the customer.
Today, the Hörmann Group is run by the third and fourth generation, i.e. the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of company founder August Hörmann. Thomas J. Hörmann, Martin J. Hörmann, and Christoph Hörmann are the personally liable general partners.
The foundation for today’s company was laid in the 1950s with the industrial production of a new type of garage door: the up-and-over garage door. In the 1960s, space-saving, vertically opening sectional doors for garages, as well as for industrial and commercial buildings, initiated a future-oriented development. Since then, the product range has been extended systematically. Today, in addition to the well-known classics, the product range also includes rolling shutters, sliding and high-speed doors, entrance and internal doors, frames, door operators, fire-rated and smoke-tight door assemblies, loading technology systems as well as automatic sliding door and perimeter protection systems.
The Hörmann Group is Europe's leading supplier of doors. More than 15 million doors have been produced and delivered worldwide since its foundation in 1935. More than 6,000 employees in 28 specialised factories in Europe, North America and Asia develop and produce high-quality doors, hinged doors, frames and operators for use in private and commercial properties. The headquarters of the globally active Hörmann Group is located in the small town of Steinhagen, Germany. The still family-run company recently recorded an annual turnover of more than 1 billion euros. Hörmann is present in over 100 individual sales locations in more than 40 countries and represented by sales partners in over 50 other countries.
A commitment to social and cultural projects
As a result of its social commitment, Hörmann traditionally supports projects from non-profit organisations and institutions concerned with the situation of handicapped or chronically ill people.
