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 Hörmann Group is an internationally-oriented, fast-growing company. Gates, doors, frames and operators are manufactured for the markets in Europe, North America and Asia at highly-specialised factories. Employing more than 6,000 staff, this 100% family-owned company has achieved over 1 billion euros in sales. A tight network of more than 80 company-owned subsidiaries and numerous authorised dealers in over 30 countries ensures proximity to customers.
The foundation for today's company was laid in the 1950s with the industrial production of a new type of garage door: the "Berry" up-and-over door.
In the 1960s, space-saving, vertically opening sectional doors for garages, as well as for industrial and commercial buildings, initiated a development with a promising future.
Since then, the product range has been extended systematically. Today, it includes well-known classics, plus rolling shutters, folding, fire, and high-speed doors, door operators and controls, as well as loading technology systems, fire and smoke-tight door assemblies, entrance and internal doors, canopies and frames.
Hörmann (Series 2000) garage doors are assembled at the new Hörmann factory in Leicestershire from components sourced from both the continent and the U.K. All Hörmann garage doors are manufactured according to the Quality Management System DIN ISO 9001 and meet all the requirements of the European Standard 13241-1
