This results in additional external quality audits by national and international certification bodies for our company, e.g. for ATEX products. In these as well as in internal audits, among other things, our analysis results, our quality system, product and processes as well as legal requirements are audited and the effectiveness is proven.
We manufacture and sell standard catalog products as mass-produced goods for the electrotechnical installation sector, electronics for measuring and control technology and fittings for the heating and sanitary industry. We carry out changes in production processes or changes of sub-suppliers exclusively for the purpose of improvement and do not automatically initiate notification of all customers for standard articles.
Contracts or orders with sub-suppliers are subject to confidentiality and are not made available to third parties.

By establishing the company “Anton Hummel Metallwarenfabrik” in Alt-Simonswald, Holger Hummel's grandfather laid the first foundations in 1948 for the modern-day HUMMEL AG. The company headquarters were relocated to Waldkirch as early as 1952. The company primarily produced moulded turned parts for everyday use, which were urgently required in post-war Germany (e.g. combination locks, cigarette lighters, pasta machines, etc.). The upswing of the economic miracle years in Germany meant that HUMMEL cracked the magic turnover mark of 1 million D-Mark in1958.
Helmut Hummel joined the company in 1966. The milestones achieved by the second generation included the launch of plastic production (1972), patent registration of the rotating vent valve (1976) and the investment in fully automated galvanics (1987).
In 1971, HUMMEL registered a packing gland connection for patent, which represented a quantum leap in the cable connection sector. The HUMMEL brand stood for innovative products in electro-technical connections from then on. In 1994 the company paved the way for further growth by building a logistics centre in neighbouring Denzlingen. The tight production space in Waldkirch had become far too restrictive. HUMMEL started with the production of M 23 round plug connectors in 1999. At the turn of the century, the tide started to turn for globalisation. Subsidiaries and sales branches in China, Brazil, Italy, England and India gradually developed. Over the course of time, France, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Sweden and Austria followed.
The company’s pronounced vertical integration encompasses in-house development, design, toolmaking, production, electroplating and assembly, and provides the basis for implementing customised requests.
HUMMEL is international, and also manufactures internationally. The smart division of work across countries and continents is strictly geared to the needs of the respective target markets. Over the years, centres of excellence have emerged in close proximity to customers and markets. This is not only economical, but also highly customer-oriented.
As a medium-sized company, HUMMEL AG maintains contacts with numerous social groups. The company supports social and cultural institutions as well as sports clubs that are particularly committed to youth work. The benchmark for this social commitment is always the sustainability and future viability of the projects.
