Häfele was established during a period of profound political and social upheaval. The Weimar Republic is just a few years old, and the consequences of the First World War are still evident everywhere.
In 1923, when inflation reaches its climax in Germany, two young men (Adolf Häfele and Hermann Funk) take their fate into their own hands: on 1st December they establish the specialist shop for hardware "Products from the hardware and tool industry" in Aulendorf/Württemberg. Häfele is an international company providing hardware and fitting systems and electronic access control systems. Around the world, customers from the furniture industry, dealers, joiners and cabinet makers, as well as architects, planners and builders all rely on Häfele's expertise and performance. In 1986 it was opened the branch in Italy, which continues its expansion. For more information contact Mr Carlo Milesi, CEO of Häfele Italia:
