From individual solution to smart factory
The customers of the HAHN Group companies benefit from a wide range of automation solutions, starting with very small projects for individual grippers or robot arms, through the expansion of existing systems with flexible additions and extending to standardized modules and test and inspection systems. With the planning, implementation and commissioning of complex production lines, the HAHN Group accompanies its customers’ smart factory projects worldwide.
For the highest level of advice and service, the HAHN Group has numerous locations in the main economic regions and time zones. The group’s global network enables fast response times and customers benefit from local contacts. This proximity to the customer in combination with tailor-made solutions forms the basis for long-term partnerships.
In less than 30 years, the HAHN Group was able to develop from a small design office in the Hunsrück region to a global group of companies. Thomas Hähn founded the company Hähn Engineering in 1992. Later on this evolved into HAHN Automation GmbH, which established its first foreign facility, in the USA, only eight years after its foundation.
In 2014, RSBG SE acquired the majority in HAHN Automation, which at that time already employed 350 people at seven locations worldwide. HAHN Group GmbH was founded in 2017 and serves as a platform for the further development of the group companies. These companies benefit from the group’s synergies, sharing of knowledge, and areas of expertise in their further development. Today, the HAHN Group and its subsidiaries have over 1,700 employees in Europe, North America and Asia.
