HATHO History

Mr. HAns THOma founded HATHO on December 6, 1968. The company name derived from his own name: HA from Hans and THO from Thoma. The nephew of the company’s founder, Dr. Ralf Steiner, joined the company in 1991 and eventually took over as Managing Director in 2002. In 2003, HATHO moved location from Freiburg to the Gewerbepark Breisgau in Eschbach.


HATHO has always had an international dimension. This is true both within the company and outside the company. Currently HATHO employees come from 11 different countries and HATHO clients are from all corners of the world. In 2015, we shipped our goods to clients in 46 countries.
