Our history

With the Moto Guzzi over the Gotthard Pass
Karl Hauger over the Gotthard Pass

The quality and continuous development of our products were already an important concern of our founder Karl Hauger. In 1963 when he heard about the extreme stability of a cement from Italy, he spontaneously sat down in his company car to bring a sample of the new type of cement from Livorno to Rastatt.

Due to the very bad roads at the time, the car did not survive the journey. But, Karl Hauger would not be dissuaded from that and decided to buy a used Moto Guzzi Cardellino in Italy for 320 DM. Loaded with 25 kilograms of cement, he started the three-day return journey over the Gotthard Pass to Rastatt.

RECYFIX trenches

A lot has happened since Karl Hauger’s adventurous journey over the Gotthard Pass on the search for cement. Our range of drainage channels have long since ceased to consist of only concrete. We now manufacture light and robust RECYFIX channels made from 100% recycled composite. They are durable, cost-efficient and withstand extreme loads.
