The name Hilge has been synonymous with quality and safety since 1862. The company is known for stainless steel centrifugal pumps in hygienic design and is active around the world in the beverage technology, food technology, pharmaceuticals and biochemistry markets. In addition, Hilge develops customer-specific solutions for the industrial, environmental and surface engineering sectors.
The pumps are manufactured for sensitive hygienic processes exclusively from rolled and forged steel. The use of high-precision manufacturing technologies such as CNC-controlled milling and turning centres, welding robots and state-of-the-art inspection processes demonstrate the high quality standards. Today, Hilge products are an important segment in the Grundfos Group, which acquired the company in 2004, thus speeding up its market entry in the food, beverage and pharmaceuticals sectors.
The growth of Hilge GmbH & Co. KG has been supported by cooperative partnerships with its customers as well as its particular dedication and its employees’ sense of responsibility over the past 150 years. In future, it will be crucial to venture down new paths, recognise trends and develop creative answers for the market of tomorrow and the success of its customers in cooperation with universities and research institutions.
