Our vision: Trust made easy

Björn Hillesheim, Geschäftsführer

"Trust from our partners, staff and customers is of the utmost importance to Hymer-Leichtmetallbau. We have noticed that the perfect ladder is far more than just the sturdiest, most durable, safest and most innovative ladder. Aside from the design, choice of material and workmanship, Hymer-Leichtmetallbau embodies values like no other company in the industry; values that make it easy to trust us. This is what we'd like to talk about here."


Gerald Schock and Jörg Nagel, Managing Directors

The strong brand for professionals

Today, the name of our ownership family represents a strong brand with a high profile and very positive brand image. This brand strength is a decisive success factor for Hymer-Leichtmetallbau and also our partners in trade and industry. You can rely on the good reputation of our products and continual demand and you can expect your customers to afford you trust in hand.

Added value products and services

In terms of our products, "trust made easy" comes in tangible dimensions: lightweight metal design, outstanding workmanship and durability, innovative functions and above all the high level of safety that distinguishes Hymer products. And we also make sure that our customers get real added value when it comes to service.

Automotive quality standard

The automotive industry in Germany has established probably the highest quality standards and safety systems in the world. Drawing on many years of experience in the automotive sector, we have built up a comprehensive concept for quality management and project handling in the development and production of system components for vehicles in limited series production - "Automotive light". We also adopt this approach in the area of ladder technology - whether for series production or custom products. This means that our partners can rely on the fact that every eventuality is accounted for from development to supply and that consistent product and processing quality is assured.

Operative excellence

Hymer-Leichtmetallbau reacts faster and more flexibly to customer requirements and market opoprtunities than its competitors. Ongoing optimisation, innovative solutions and oustanding services, excellent quality and delivery-capacity keep our range market-orientated and interesting. Our customers can count on us to realise their requirements perfectly and offer them solutions that make them successful in the market.

Environmental awareness

We live and work in nature and its conservation is close to our heart. For this reason, we pay attention to the careful use of our resources in every decision we make and in all of our processes. For example, since 2011 Hymer-Leichtmetallbau only uses electricity from 100% renewable energy sources and thereby saves more than 250,000 kg of CO2 each year. Our main material, aluminium, is a metal that is becoming harder and harder to find on earth but one that can be reused with no loss in quality. Hymer-Leichtmetallbau is therefore investing consciously in recycling as well.

Location, jobs and social responsibility

We identify with our factory sites and take responsibility there on a regional level. Safeguarding jobs and training are extremely important to us. We are conscious of the fact that, as a company, Hymer-Leichtmetallbau is a member of the community and we therefore become involved even in social spheres - above all in our region.


Companies can make many claims. But while they are not independent, these claims are not worth much. For Hymer-Leichtmetallbau, financial independence and autonomy in all decisions are a part of our self-image and a solid reason why our partners, customers and staff can trust our brand and our word.
