We are celebrating our anniversary!
30 Years of Excellence in Pneumatics
The Hafner team has been accompanying its partners in automation technology for 30 years.
In the past three decades the company has developed from a simple workshop to a medium-sized company.
Starting with clamping elements and profiles for automation technology, the focus of everything we do has been on pneumatic valves since 1993.
We produce our valves nowadays on a total manufacturing area of over 2,000 m².
In addition to the factory in Hungary, our German export office serves our partners in over 50 countries around the world.
We owe this growth to our customers and our team and we are very proud of what we have achieved together.
Then as now, our team of pneumatics enthusiasts develop customized valves according to your requirements. And it doesn't always have to be a large quantity. Our modular product range allows maximum flexibility even for small and medium quantities.
Fast product developments and delivery times are particularly important to us so that your projects can be implemented quickly and downtimes can be kept short.
Low failure rates, a long service life and everything 100% Made in Europe.
This is what distinguishes our valves today and also in the future!
Erich Hafner: A pioneer in valve technology
|The company's history is inextricably linked with the life of the company's founder.
The engineer Erich Hafner, who had been intensively involved in valve technology since the 1970s, returned in 1991 to his native country Hungary, which he had to leave in 1946 as a member of the German minority, and founded what would later become Hafner Pneumatika Kft.
Together with the cooperation partner JOYNER pneumatic GmbH, the engineer, who was always keen to experiment and focused on high precision, succeeded in developing the company quickly.
A few years after it was founded, the company premises in Halászi were acquired.
In 1998, the first of what have meanwhile been five construction phases was completed and the premises inaugurated together with the JOYNER team.
In 1999 Christine Krämer, the daughter of Mr. Erich Hafner, and Andreas Krämer founded Hafner Pneumatik Krämer KG in Stuttgart.
The family business has been growing significantly faster than the market for decades, supported by the development spirit of Erich Hafner and the internationalization of sales driven by the second generation.
The dynamism embodied by Mr. Hafner, his courage to try out new things and his urge to get a little better every day are the basic values of our company and the basis of the competitive advantage that our customers enjoy with Hafner products.
