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 6,000 staff, this 100% family-owned company has achieved over 1 billion euros in sales. A tight network of more than 50 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 when Hörmann started manufacturing a new type of up-and-over garage door: the so-called "Berry 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 is being constantly extended. Today, it includes well-known "classics", plus rolling shutters, folding, fire, and high-speed doors, door operators, controls, loading technology systems, fire and smoke-tight door assemblies, entrance and internal doors, canopies and frames.
