HOPPE – Handle of Excellence.
“Creativity is intelligent thinking against the norm”, the result being: “Different from and better than others.” These beliefs make the HOPPE Group what it is today!
With more than 2,600 employees in seven plants in Europe and the USA and international marketing we make the handle of excellence capture the ambiance in every detail.
Optimum benefit/price ratio
HOPPE has established itself as the European market leader in developing, manufacturing and marketing of door and window hardware. Core area of expertise is the manufacturing of high quality hardware with an optimum benefit/price ratio. Hardware from HOPPE is neither cheap nor expensive but always worth its price!
In 1952 Friedrich Hoppe set up a company for the production of door hardware in Heiligenhaus – the traditional center of lock and hardware production in Germany. Two years later he moved his company to Stadtallendorf near Marburg, thereby setting the course for further expansion.
As early as 1965 manufacturing in Italy (in German-speaking South-Tyrol) began.
In 1989 HOPPE crosses the atlantic into the USA.
From 1990 on HOPPE actively contributes to the reconstruction of East Germany (taking over a former nationally owned enterprise in Crottendorf (Saxonia) and founding a new plant in 1993).
In 1996 HOPPE starts to produce hardware made from brass in Chomutov (Czech Republic) in order to compete on the lowest price levels as well.
HOPPE Group – by now operating intercontinentally – is led today by Wolf Hoppe and Christoph Hoppe.
The course for continuity of HOPPE as a family-run company even in the third generation was set when Christian Hoppe, the eldest son of Wolf Hoppe, joined the company in April 2012.
The HOPPE Holding AG in Switzerland coordinates all global corporate activities.
