A Company History - Andreas Hettich


The Andreas Hettich company’s success story began in 1904 with the manufacturing of medical instruments. Under challenging conditions, with a well developed sense of market need and a bold spirit, Andreas Hettich set the company on course. The first centrifuges were developed and received with breakthrough success. The company then dedicated its efforts exclusively to the manufacturing and development of centrifuges finely tuned to user needs.

Over a span of close to 50 years, between 1956 and 2005, Günter Eberle led the company’s development. With his entrepreneurial vision, he was able to bridge technological advancement and user needs – again and again. The more than 200 patents received speak for themselves. Today, the company is one of the leading manufacturers of laboratory centrifuges worldwide. With pioneering and innovative business management and consistent quality assurance, Horst and Klaus-Günter Eberle look after consolidation and continuous expansion of their market position.

Finely tuned precision and customer-oriented innovation Hettich centrifuges are known for their reliable functionality, and for their fast and easy operation. At Hettich, all departments are involved in new product development from day one onwards. The open exchange of ideas and suggestions not only supports team spirit, it is also very productive. It promotes high-level motivation and commitment on the part of the whole team. Motivation that is clearly reflected in trendsetting product quality.

Impressive examples of this include the presentation of the first microprocessor-controlled centrifuges at ACHEMA 1976, and the development of the first robot-operated centrifuges with PC-control and rotor positioning in the nineties.

Real customer benefits are always in the foreground of product development. Individual customer needs which are not directly covered by the current product range are addressed with customised solutions. A 25-person sales and support team across Germany ensures service, maintenance, and specialised consulting and advice on location. Via its subsidiaries abroad, Andreas Hettich GmbH & Co.KG distributes its products in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and the USA. Centrifuges from Hettich, however, are used all over the world. In many countries and on all continents, the company works closely with authorised distributors to ensure the highest quality of local service and support.
