About us and our company

Where innovative spirit and cosmopolitanism meet over 130 years of tradition

Haver & Boecker is a family-managed, midsize company with its headquarters in Oelde, Westphalia. Founded in 1887 the Haver & Boecker oHG comprises the Wire Weaving and Machinery Division. In these areas it is active on all five continents worldwide with more than 50 subsidiaries and 150 agencies as a technology leader and trendsetter.

The Wire Weaving Division

... with its global network of subsidiaries and production facilities is one of the internationally most significant manufacturers of industrial woven wire cloth. With the highest precision, we manufacture both simple and highly complex technical wire mesh products which are used in many different branches: primarily for screening and filtration in the chemical, plastics, electronics, automotive and food industries, in aviation and aerospace, in industrial and test sieving, but also as a design fabric in many different industries and as architectural wire mesh in the building industry.

The Machinery Division

... is recognised internationally as a specialist operation in the fields of preparation, transportation, storage, mixing, filling, packaging, palletisation and loading of bulk goods. With our technology brands we perfect material and work flows as well as whole process sequences in many different branches. Always conscious that there is no such thing as a universal production flow – but always with the motivation to find the perfect flow for the individual requirements of every customer.
