From pioneer to quality leader
What makes the world of hanit® unique
Back in 1993, HAHN Kunststoffe GmbH was one of the first companies to manufacture new plastic products from used plastics. This is typically referred to as upcycling rather than recycling. Unlike many companies that disappeared from the market after the gold-rush atmosphere faded, we asserted ourselves. Right from the start, we have consistently promoted the development of hanit®.
It’s a material that outrivals wood, steel, stainless steel, new plastic and concrete. This is because it is more robust, lighter and more durable, and it also offers an excellent price-performance ratio. Above all else, hanit® is highly flexible thanks to its product-specific composition. We find the right recipe for every application. All raw material mixtures and products are manufactured in-house. It’s ‘Made in Germany’ and there’s no small print. It also carries the German ‘Green Angel’ seal. We’re the very first company to be awarded this medium-sized recycling price.
Currently more than 250 employees are working at HAHN Kunststoffe. On a production area of 105,000 m² we manufacture over 2,000 products. This leads to a proud sum of 35,000 t hanit® products processed and marketed.
