Häcker - a company with tradition and a vision for the future

Our history

The foundation for Häcker's corporate history was laid back in 1898 when Hermann Häcker founded a joinery in Rödinghausen. His passion for quality craftsmanship and his attention to detail have been passed down from generation to generation ever since. In 1938, Friedrich Häcker took over the management until 1965, when his son-in-law Horst Finkemeier took over the joinery. Together with his wife Renate, he laid the foundation for today's economic success through the series production of kitchen furniture. In 1996, his son, Jochen Finkemeier, joined the management. Since then, a lot has happened in terms of innovation: from the introduction of the systemat and concept130 product lines to the construction of factories 3, 4 and 5 and the introduction of BLAUPUNKT as the exclusive own brand for built-in kitchen appliances. Häcker is proud to be a traditional, owner-managed family business that makes the kitchen dreams of many people around the world come true with heart and soul and expertise.

Our philosophy

Häcker has a mission: we want to make the kitchen dreams of customers all over the world come true. Therefore, the customer with his individual ideas, wishes and needs is the focus of our corporate philosophy in every respect. Our goal is to produce high-quality and noble kitchens that make your everyday life easier and at the same time become an inspiring place where you feel completely at ease - every day anew. 
Our work is characterised by attention to detail - from the perfectly smooth lacquered front to the environmentally friendly plinth base made from 100% recycled plastic. This is how we create unique products, because as a kitchen manufacturer with passion, we know that it's the little things that make the difference. Häcker maintains a close and trusting exchange with specialist dealers in order to optimally support and accompany you with our expertise in the implementation of individual customer wishes (/en/kuechenplaner). Because our mission is to create unique kitchen compositions that perfectly suit your lifestyle. This is how your kitchen becomes a special place - a place of life, creativity and encounter that deserves the highest level of quality and precision. 

Our vision

Our vision drives us to continuously strive for excellence and push the boundaries of what is possible in kitchen design. We want to actively shape the future of the kitchen industry and make a positive impact on the lifestyles and well-being of many people. This includes the continuous improvement of our sustainability strategies, because we are aware of our responsibility - with regard to our environment, our employees and our society. To realise our vision, we rely on close cooperation with our customers, partners and employees. We want to create an environment of trust in which ideas can be exchanged and great innovations can emerge. Together, we want to set new standards and drive groundbreaking innovations in the kitchen industry.

Sustainability

Our mission

As a renowned kitchen manufacturer, Häcker follows a philosophy that goes beyond the mere production of kitchens. Because we firmly believe that a kitchen is more than just a functional room. It is the centre of the home. A place where memories are made and family and friends come together. That's why we strive to offer our customers not only the best quality, but also maximum flexibility. So that you get a kitchen that perfectly matches your individual wishes and needs. In doing so, we not only want to do justice to current design trends, but also create timelessly beautiful and sustainable kitchens. In our products, we strive for the highest quality in every detail. Each of our fitted kitchens (/en/kueche-kaufen) combines functionality, technical sophistication and aesthetics. From the initial idea to the final implementation, we set the highest standards in terms of quality and precision to meet the highest expectations.


Our values

As a traditional, family-run company, we stand up for our values. They are the foundation of our Häcker corporate culture and describe where our priorities lie. Values give every company a healthy and solid foundation on which everything else is built. They are the DNA of a healthy company culture and point the way to any successful vision for the future. Discover Häcker's top 5 values.

1. Quality

What is a company without a good product? Hardly. Therefore, the quality of our products and services is always in the focus of our attention. How can this be measured? Through independent controls and certifications, which we receive time and again. But we don't just offer certified quality from independent sources: our certified quality management with in-house testing laboratory ensures that all our products live up to our quality promise - every day anew. The result: high-quality, durable and healthy kitchen furniture whose special quality is regularly awarded numerous seals of quality.

2. Service

What good is a great product if the customer is left alone with it? That's why service is a top priority at Häcker. Exceptionally good and reliable service is absolutely close to our hearts. From sales to customer service, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to configure your dream kitchen, order it and have it installed in your home. For example, we carefully check every single kitchen plan from our specialist dealers to ensure that everything runs smoothly during installation. 

3. Reliability

For us, service and reliability go hand in hand. Accordingly, reliability is also of the utmost importance to us, both in terms of our products and services and in our interaction with our customers and employees. Because reliability is the basis for a trusting relationship. You can rely on our word and we stand by our promises.

4. Honesty

For us, honesty means keeping our quality promises and being transparent in our communication with our customers. Häcker is an honest and reliable partner and employer that transparently communicates its product range, its corporate policy and its qualities as an employer.

5. Sustainability

Sustainability has always been an important part of our thoughts and actions. As a climate-neutral kitchen manufacturer, we are aware of our responsibility for the environment. From resource protection and digitalisation to recycling, transport and energy management, we work continuously to optimise our ecological performance. This also includes our diverse social commitment.

Diese fünf Werte bilden das Fundament unserer Unternehmensphilosophie; sie prägen unsere tägliche Arbeit und unser Miteinander. Wir sind stolz darauf, ein Unternehmen zu sein, das nicht nur qualitativ hochwertige Küchen herstellt, sondern auch seine Verantwortung gegenüber Kunden, Partnern, Mitarbeitern, der Umwelt und der Gesellschaft ernstnimmt.

Through strict standards and precision in every detail - from planning to concrete implementation - we ensure that our products and services inspire our customers. Quality is at the heart of our corporate culture.
