Specialisation Creates Competence

Hohner has been an engineering company over 85 years and for over 60 years has specialised in the design and manufacture of wire stitching equipment. This company philosophy of specialisation in a particular field of technology has allowed Hohner to develop into a global brand for narrow stitching heads, smaller saddle binders and wire stitching machines. This development has its origin in the company philosophy: the central element of which is not short term thinking but the long term perspective.

... and being faced with new market requirements. Speed and reliable stitching quality were both key criteria at this point in time. It is in this advisory phase for our new investment that we have known and appreciated Hohner as a true innovative partner who really listened diligently to our needs. Today we run the HSB 13.000 for the fourth year and can certify Hohner reliability up to even the After Sales Service. My overall impression: Innovation-driven built machinery‚ made in Germany!“

Arndt Horn,

Heinrich Steuber GmbH + Co. | Sales Manager Postpress & Binding Technology

... Today, by the introduction of their automated saddle stitcher Hohner has evolved to a SME company with a clear core competence in the saddle stitching process and with a number of products for which they may successfully claim the market leader position. And not enough with that, they are the only German Company left in this field. At Steuber we rely on Hohner’s innovative products, as they guarantee high quality standards, reliability and sustainability. It is not for nothing, that also other machines in the Steuber portfolio like for instance the Theisen + Bonitz machines, are exclusively using the stitching heads of the market leader. Moreover, Hohner proves customer proximity and short decision processes.In a word: Hohner is a trustful, competent partner with an attractive modern overall appearance, lived and shared by all the staff, which already reflects the precision behind all that."

... about the higher price level of the Hohner stitching heads. So we have followed the smart proposal of Hohner Nanjing to go for a test phase with Hohner heads at one of our final customers with the result that all of us have been convinced of the extraordinary quality of Hohner’s stitching heads; with 10 stitching heads per machine it’s evident that a defect head causes a production stop each time, which means a high cost for our customers. In the meantime we equip all our machines with hundreds of the reliable Hohner stitching heads 43/6 and 52/8 per year and in this way help our customers to save money. Hohner to us means definitely quality that pays off.“

... which should match our expectations towards speed, product variety, flexibility and fast customer service and granting next to that the highest technological reliability. The DIGI-Finisher fulfils all that; it has been the perfect decision for us; the fact of having right a year later another second line of the same type, is probably the best proof.“
