HUBER BAND QUALITY FOR OVER 150 YEARS

OUR STORY –
Your proof of quality

Huber Bandfabrik has been combining tradition and innovation since 1864. As the inventor of the lift tape, we are constantly developing, even in the fourth generation. Together with our customers and thanks to our continuously modernized infrastructure, we are permanently working on our products so that they will continue to meet changing needs in the future.

The result: a wide range of technical tapes that are second to none in terms of stability, precision and quality. These are the result of our 150-year tradition of independent, long-term and entrepreneurially far-sighted action. For our international clientele, for our valued employees and for our common environment.

WE PRODUCE IN AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY

The unmatched quality of our products ensures a long service life, the most important prerequisite for sustainability. In addition, we have already been able to save over 140 000 kg of plastic waste by using and taking back reusable spools. Our production emissions are continuously improved through cooperation with the “Energie-Agentur der Wirtschaft”.

 

Commissioning of a photovoltaic system

In November 2022, we installed a state-of-the-art photovoltaic system on the flat roof of our production building.

With 2,000 m2 of solar panels, we produce around 50% of our own electricity needs.
The additional consumption is covered with electricity from renewable energy sources.

In addition, we replaced all older windows in the office building by state-of-the-art energy-saving windows.
