Innovation out of tradition:
a success story made in Bad Oldesloe

Hako has always been in the front line, even before the company was founded in Bad Oldesloe in 1948: It already started back in the 1920s, when Hans Koch invented the worldwide first small motor hoe. From then on, the motto has always been “full steam ahead” and “creating a broad base”.  Today, offering a comprehensive range of products, Hako has the right solution for every requirement in the field of Cleaning and Municipal Technology. Accompany us on a journey through Hako’s history, from the motorized hand to the technology of the future!

Our commitment in terms of sustainability and environmental protection

Everything we do has an impact on the environment and therefore on our future. This is why, with each and any of our activities, we focus on protecting the environment:

from selecting the materials to sustainable development processes and the resource-saving production of our machines. Eco-friendly use is one of our top priorities when developing our machines, which means, for example, that we focus on developing efficient solutions with long service life and low consumption of cleaning detergents.

And our customers benefit from our machines’ superior economic efficiency.
