With the invention of the steel plate valve in 1895, the Austrian engineer Hanns Hörbiger (1860–1931) not only laid the foundation for today’s HOERBIGER Group, but also created one of the key technologies for industrial development.
Today, HOERBIGER’s mission is to empower customers and partners in various industries around the globe with performance- defining products and services that enable them to improve the performance and safety of their products and operations, conserve energy, reduce emissions, and save lives.
Growth. A term that has once again become a persistent topic of discussion in the media – generally as something to be concerned about. High inflation, rising interest rates and a difficult geopolitical situation are slowing economic growth, we read everywhere. “The World Bank lowers its global growth forecast and warns of a possible recession,” claims another headline. And just at this time HOERBIGER is proclaiming a phase of growth – how does that fit together?
In the 2022 fiscal year, the HOERBIGER Group succeeded in achieving the highest sales in the company’s history despite a challenging economic environment. Now the company is setting its course for the future.
A new plant currently being built in Changzhou will unite the production of the HOERBIGER Compression Division and the Safety Business Unit in China under one roof, starting in 2024.

Iris Schierhuber joined HOERBIGER in May 2022 after holding various positions in international human resources (HR) management. She is responsible for People & Culture in the Compression Division and is a member of the global P&C Leadership Team.
As renewable energy sources become increasingly important, battery energy storage systems provide a stable power supply, mostly using lithium-ion battery technology. The solutions offered by HOERBIGER’s Safety Business Unit protect people and the environment while complying with the associated regulations.
With its automation solutions, the German WEISS Group is one of the world’s leading system suppliers to the automotive industry, mechanical and plant engineering, life sciences and electronics. Its North American subsidiary, based in Willoughby, Ohio, USA, was looking for a reliable, easy-to-install electrical slip ring for car body production tables. WEISS engineers found what they were looking for at Deublin, a HOERBIGER company.
HOERBIGER has been a global player from its very beginnings. Industry leaders around the globe quickly recognized the groundbreaking benefits of Hanns Hörbiger’s steel plate valve, and the company’s founder granted international licenses for the use of this key technology as early as the beginning of the last century.
