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 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, fire, and high-speed doors, door operators, controls, loading technology systems, fire and smoke-tight door assemblies, entrance and internal doors, canopies and frames.
The Hörmann Group is Europe's leading supplier of doors. More than 20 million doors have been produced and delivered worldwide since its foundation in 1935. More than 6,000 employees in 38 specialised factories in Europe, North America and Asia develop and produce high-quality doors, hinged doors, frames and operators for use in private and commercial properties. The headquarters of the globally active Hörmann Group is located in the small town of Steinhagen, Germany. The still family-run company recently recorded an annual turnover of more than 1 billion euros. Over 80 individual sales locations in more than 30 countries as well as hundreds of authorised dealers in about 35 additional countries ensure short distances for Hörmann customers around the globe.
