About Us

The network of companies which is known as  Haar group is organized around the
founding and managing company Alfons Haar Maschinenbau GmbH & Co KG in
Hamburg, Germany. Founded by Mr. Alfons Haar in 1949 as a small specialized
machine manufacturer it has developed into a global player in the niche markets for
the storage and transport of fuels, chemicals and powder as well as machinery and
equipment for the can making industry. The group continues to expand in the second
generation of family management.

The combining factor in both divisions is the provision of complete systems with
a high degree of internally developed and manufactured components. Targets are
mechatronic solutions which combine the best of the mechanical and the electronic
technology maximizing value for money for the benefit of the users. Quality is
ensured by locally based efficient production facilities for mechanical and electronic
components. ISO 9001 accompanied with ATEX 94/9EC certification has been
the basis of our work for decades.

The group structure was founded more than 30 years ago when local representa-
tions  were not yet the practice. The driving factor behind the actual coverage of
many European but also overseas locations is a close relationship to markets and
customers. This feeds back the local requirements to ensure that our developments
respond to really global needs and at the same time provides a highly optimum
service capability.
