What we stand for
Water means life.
But how does it get to you?
Many people don’t think twice when turning the tap and enjoying a glass of fresh water, or luxuriating in a hot bath on a cold winter’s day. Only rarely do people wonder about the journey the water has been on before it flows out of the tap. Hawle products are used to ensure that water is distributed and regulated cleanly and reliably, from the source to the home.
With an extensive range of isolation, distribution and control valves, as well as pipe connections and fittings for drinking water and wastewater systems, Hawle plays a major part in ensuring a reliable water supply. We are deeply committed to finding the best solutions for our customers and meeting the highest quality demands. This quality commitment stretches all the way back to the pioneer Engelbert Hawle, whose passion for inventing and refining can still be seen in Hawle today.
The Hawle Austria Group remains a family-run company based in Austria, but is now active all over the world. We are developing new business sectors with a clear strategy that places “water” at the focus of our actions. Even though the UN declared this vital resource a human right in 2010, millions of people still do not have access to clean water.
Hawle takes its responsibility seriously and sets high standards for all its corporate processes. As a founding member of the “Quality Assurance Association for Heavy-Duty Corrosion Protection” (Gütegemeinschaft Schwerer Korrosionsschutz, GSK), Hawle has its own process approval procedures at all its production sites. This means that it can guarantee consistently high quality worldwide.
Vision, mission and values
Clean drinking water means life. Life means commitment. That's why we provide the most reliable connections for drinking water supply around the world.
With pioneering spirit, reliable products, solution-oriented and partner-driven teamwork, we are actively shaping a reliable water supply around the world.
Water is a vital resource, which is why Hawle places the utmost importance on the reliability and functionality of its products. To us, reliability also means focusing on the future and acting responsibly in everything we do. For this reason, stable relationships with employees, partners and customers are the basis of a culture of commitment that underpins the Hawle brand. Reliability also means financial stability and reliability of supply. We make sure that both of these are upheld through long-term relationships with and professional management of our suppliers, as well as by manufacturing a large number of parts in-house.
For this family-run company, partnership means putting people at the center of all we do. Hawle views the partners with which it cooperates as equals.
Our corporate culture is built on respect, honesty and a willingness to listen. We find the best solutions by working as a team.
Engelbert Hawle’s greatest passion was to continue breaking new ground after coming up with his revolutionary idea. This drive to evolve is therefore in our DNA. A passion and enthusiasm for innovation can be found throughout the company to this day, and it spurs us on to innovate and develop new technologies and processes. Hawle does not plan on losing its curiosity – and its aim will always be to find the best solutions for its customers.
