Precision Components for local Public Transport
Kassel-based HÜBNER GmbH & Co. KG has its origins in a repair workshop for rubber products, which was established in 1946. In the 1950s, the company started to manufacture bellows for Deutsche Bahn carriages. HÜBNER also developed the first articulated buses together with Kassel company Henschel. HÜBNER now has 3,500 employees in production sites all over the world in Germany, Hungary, India, the USA and China, among others. The majority of the company’s revenue nowadays comes from gangway systems connecting carriages in trains and buses. The range of services is now rounded off with the Material Solutions and Photonics divisions. The former develops demanding solutions made from elastomers, polyurethane and industrial textiles. HÜBNER Photonics specializes in the manufacture of pioneering lasers. In its production facility, HÜBNER places value on having a comprehensive manufacturing capability, especially in the machining area. The company has invested in machinery from DMG MORI repeatedly since 1988. It purchased its first automated manufacturing solution last year in the form of the CTX beta 1250 TC 4A with Robo2Go.
