From a local supplier of spare parts to a worldwide systems supplier in hydraulics

The starting point for HANSA-FLEX was one man and his idea. In the year 1962 the young sales representative Joachim Armerding began in Bremen to produce and personally deliver replacement hoses for the growing field of oil hydraulics. In the 50 years of our company history we have developed from a local one-man operation into a group of companies with global operations but which remain privately owned to the present day.

Today more than 3,200 highly trained employees at approximately 400 branches on all five continents are in daily operation on behalf of our customers.
