About us

Precisely fitting hydraulic range

HBE, located in Neuenrade, Germany, is part of the international Echterhage Group. We have been developing and manufacturing precisely fitting steel and aluminium oil tanks for over 30 years. Since the formation of the company in 1984, a high quality range of hydraulic components, heat exchangers as well as shaft and flange couplings for the fluid and drive technology have supplemented the product programme. With a reliable service, an extensive product selection and highest technical quality standards, HBE has become one of the leading manufacturers in its market segments.

Know-how in steel tank construction

In our in-house steel construction department we fulfill customised orders quickly and flexibly for tanks ready to install, welding constructions and cut blanks in steel and stainless steel. Extensive stock levels ensure a short time supply of standardised tanks and oil sumps.

In cooperation with the customer

Oil tanks as well as other hydraulic components are produced as standard series but are also designed as individual, custom-made units. The contact and communication with the customer with comprehensive consultations and flexibility in regard to customer-specific requirements are a matter of course. To enable short delivery times and competent service on-site, HBE is represented by several sales offices in Germany.

Expertise worldwide

With own subsidiaries in Italy, France, Great Britain, USA, China and India along with sales partners in all important industrial countries worldwide, we operate close to the customer. To ensure our quality standards for all our sales offices, HBE employees are being continuously trained.

High quality standard "Made in Germany"

Since 1994, HBE is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000. In 2017, HBE successfully implemented the newest standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. Furthermore, HBE is accredited according to §19L Federal Water Act and a certified welding shop according to DIN EN 1090, DIN EN ISO 3834-2.
