Electrohydraulic Valve Actuator
With his development of what at the time was a highly innovative steel plate valve, in 1895 Hanns Hörbiger laid the foundation for the present Group. This development furthered the evolution of blast furnace technology and prepared the way for pressure chemistry.
Hanns Hörbiger's oldest son Alfred started the in-house production of valves in Vienna-Simmering in 1931. In the years after the end of the Second World War, his wife Martina Hörbiger managed to strengthen the company's international relationships, creating the basis for today's Group and its global operations with 130 locations in more than 50 countries.
