Hawa architectural hardware always looks good, even in limited surroundings. Hardly surprising, given that the total office space was just six square metres when Karl and Otto Haab took the company reins into their hands back in 1965.
Things did not stay like that for very long. An emphasis on high quality and innovative products successively transformed the company's history into a success story. A brand new factory was inaugurated in the Mettmenstetten industrial area in 1980, with extensions added in 1990 and 2001. The company EKU AG in Sirnach joined the Hawa Group in 1992. And January 2001 saw management change from one generation to the next when Karl and Otto Haab handed the reins to their sons, Gregor and Heinz Haab.
