From the garage workshop to the HA-CO Group

History of HA-CO Group

Company history: How many individual companies became one group

Essentially, the HA-CO Group consists of four companies, which are located in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. These are part of the Haudenschild Holding and now act together. Many steps were necessary to finally get to this point. The history of this process is shown here with the most important milestones.

However, the development of the HA-CO Group is far from complete. In fact, we are striving for more: product range extensions, opening up new customer segments, optimizing existing processes and even more intensive cooperation within the group. We know that nothing is as constant as change and look forward to a challenging future.
