Hako Hits The Big 40

A monumental even, an iconic setting…

Hako Machines Ltd, the leading cleaning machine manufacturer, has notched up 40 years in the UK and is planning a major celebration with customers who will help them blow out the candles on its big birthday.

The event will be staged at Silverstone’s world famous motor racing circuit on March 14 and key people from the municipal and corporate world are being invited to the party.

Hako UK’s managing director, Sylvie Giangolini, who took over the controls a year ago, said she was delighted the milestone had happened on her watch.

“Customers, suppliers, partners and staff will be invited to join us for what will be a great event celebrating our heritage and also giving everyone a glimpse into the future,

The history of Hako Machines

Hako UK, which is based in Crick, Northamptonshire, launched in the UK back in 1979 but the global Hako story started six decades before when German inventor, Hans Koch created the world’s first small mechanical cultivator.

“Things have moved on a pace since then and the Hako line up is staggering and a defining factor of the business. Included in our range are 12 indoor scrubber/drier variants, ten indoor sweepers, an array of commercial equipment and our four multi-functional street cleaning Citymaster Sweepers,” said Sylvie. “We will not only be celebrating the last 40 years of trading in the UK ,we’re also celebrating the next 40 years and looking at some of the major developments we have planned for the future. “But as it’s a celebration we also have some fun things lined up for our guests including track experiences and what better place to do that then at this fantastic Grand Prix circuit?”

Among the speakers on the day will be a Hako personality from the past, but with an eye very much on the future, and that is Bernard Molloy. “I am immensely proud of how Hako developed and continues to develop both its people and its great machines. The company is so far ahead of the game. “It is right up there with the best, or maybe even the best in the world, in its sector. The combination of British ingenuity, aesthetics and design and the German skills in organisation and functionality meant that we have – and continue to have – the perfect blend of skillsets and cultures.” Hako now operates in more than 60 countries with close on 2,000 employees and is now part of the Germany based Possehl Group which has an annual turnover of more than 3.5 billion Euros.
