Company history

- For 4 generations. With heart, courage and state-of-the-art technology. -

The company E. HAHNENKRATT GmbH was founded in 1932 by the master mechanic Emil Hahnenkratt in Pforzheim.

The company building was completely destroyed by the bombing on February 23, 1945. With the last of their strength, the few remains of the machines were salvaged from the rubble and carted to Stein in a horse-drawn wagon. 

In his garage, Emil Hahnenkratt, at the age of 45, dared to make a new start after the war with a lot of courage. As a gifted technician – with an instinctive feel for
machines – he manufactured the first small medical parts in series. His daughter and son-in-law then brought the progress and vigor of a new generation. Dental instruments and products were developed and worldwide business connections were established.

With the move in 1967, there was new space for state-of-the-art production technology and to develop new products.

In 1980 the next generation set new impulses and in 1989 they moved into the new company building in the industrial area, which was already extended for the second time.

The love of technology has been “inherited” and is reflected today by the consistent use of high-tech in all areas of the company.

Today, more than 80 employees work in the company building in the industrial area in Stein near Pforzheim, which has been expanded again and again.
