Finding better ways for more than 80 years.
Häfele has been managed by ambitious entrepreneurs from the very
beginning. Each one of these personalities has successfully implemented
visions and made a significant contribution to the development of the group
of companies. Häfele was delivering hardware abroad and procuring
hardware from other countries as long ago as the 1960’s. Häfele has had
a presence in the USA since 1973, Australia since 1982 and Asia since
1988. One particular milestone was the development of the globally
successful Minifix component. The patent for this new furniture connector
was granted in 1983. Häfele has had an electronic information and
ordering system since 1995, and orders can now be placed in the 15 most
important markets using online catalogues. Häfele added the Dialock
electronic locking system to it’s range of hardware for projects in 1997, and
has been supplying complete hardware solutions for furnishing areas such
as kitchens, storage rooms and retirement homes since 2005.
