Company foundation and development of modern principles and types of device

1970 Rolf Meier and Ullrich Hoehler found the company Lufttechnischer Apparatebau (Air Technology Equipment Construction). They are convinced that controlled air humidification can bring major benefits in many areas, and aim to develop the technology even further. The first devices in the range included centrifugal atomisers, which are mainly suitable for greenhouses and warehouses.

1971 Exports of these highly-efficient, cost-effective systems to France, Japan and Spain begin.

1973 Not long after the company is founded, guiding principles on sustainability are developed, which are still decisive today, helping shape our profile: The newly developed range of electrode steam air humidifiers has a longer working life, saves running costs and protects the environment. Instead of the usual disposable cylinder, a new type of cylinder is developed, which is easy for customers to clean, and can be re-used.

1974 This year sees the addition of a new type of device, which can be operated with almost no maintenance; The heater steam air humidifier works with distilled water, which means that almost no hardeners can build up in the cylinder.

1977 The company is given the new name “HygroMatik” and is entered as such in the Companies Register. This name isn’t just shorter. In a single word, it expresses the central objective of the company.
