Johannes Hübner Giessen – providing the best-possible individual solutions since foundation in 1934

The driving force to this very day: High performance and reliable technologies designed to meet individual requirements

Johannes Hübner – Fabrik elektrischer Maschinen GmbH was founded in Berlin in 1934 by Johannes Hübner, who was later awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. The company was already distinguished in those days by the quality of the construction of its motors and generators. Due to the politically tense situation in post-war Berlin a subsidiary company was opened in Giessen in 1958, from which the independent company Johannes Hübner – Fabrik elektrischer Maschinen GmbH evolved in 1962.
