Häfele was established in 1923 in Nagold, Germany, and evolved from a local hardware business into a global company by the Häfele and Thierer families, who were the original owners. The Häfele group of companies is now managed by the third generation of family members.
“Finding Better Ways” has been Häfele’s guiding principle right from the start. Häfele was the first company to turn supplying customers with hardware into a dedicated, comprehensive service. The principle was to meet customer requirements as conveniently, comprehensively, economically as possible, in the required quality and in quantities that covered the anticipated usage. This business philosophy led to entirely new selling methods and innovative services that have proven to be extremely convenient for the customer. The message “Finding Better Ways” puts the promise that Häfele gives to its customers in a nutshell.
