Hettich: Elevating Furniture Hardware with Quality and Innovation


Established in 1888 by Mr. Karl Hettich, Hettich stands as a family-owned company with a rich history. Headquartered in Kirchlengern, Germany, Hettich has evolved into a prominent manufacturer of architectural and interior hardware fittings. With a global presence and a workforce of over 6,700 employees across nearly 80 countries, Hettich is dedicated to creating intelligent technology for furniture. The company's core values of quality, innovation, and customer-centricity have propelled it to the forefront of the industry.


Despite its size and international reach, Hettich remains true to its family-owned roots. The company retains its independence from investors, allowing it the freedom to shape its future while prioritizing human values and sustainability. Hettich's unwavering commitment to producing quality products and delivering exceptional services has solidified its reputation on a global scale.


Key Highlights of Hettich's Network and Worth:

- Architectural hardware (covering all door hardware needs)

- Built-in appliances (partnered with Blaupunkt)

Setting It Apart from Competitors in India:


Hettich distinguishes itself through its commitment to manufacturing excellence. Unlike competitors such as Hafele and various other brands, which largely act as marketing companies, Hettich operates two of its own manufacturing units in India. While other brands often rely on partnerships to source products, Hettich takes pride in producing items in its own factories, whether in India, Germany, or other countries.


For instance, Hafele collaborates with Blum for furniture hardware and Nagold for appliances, among other partnerships. In contrast, Hettich's dedication to in-house manufacturing ensures a level of control, quality, and reliability that resonates with customers seeking superior solutions.


In essence, Hettich stands as a testament to the synergy between tradition and innovation. As a family-owned business that has embraced global growth, the company embodies values of quality, customer-centricity, and sustainability. With a comprehensive range of products and a commitment to in-house manufacturing, Hettich continues to shape the furniture hardware industry's landscape, setting the standard for excellence worldwide
