As a family business with a tradition going back more than 150 years, the future of all our children is especially important to us. For that reason, we at the Hildebrandt Group would like to work with our customers and partners to successfully implement the energy transition. As the market leader in the manufacture of cable drums made of wood, steel and plywood, it is important to us that we not only continuously develop our products and services, but above all develop them sustainably. To this end, we promote recycling solutions and, in manufacturing our products, pay particular attention to a balanced use of resources, such as sustainable forestry. In this way, we want to act as a role model and make our contribution to a future worth living.
