For over 60 years, Hidrostal has manufactured high-quality, low-maintenance pumps - from small, portable pumps for construction sites and flooded basements to three-tonne waste water and thick matter pumps. At Hidrostal, we are committed to a high level of vertical integration and energy-efficient solutions. We supply special technically advanced products for a variety of industries and applications. By choosing a Hidrostal pump, you are opting for the best long-term solution.
The pump with the characteristic screw centrifugal impeller was invented by Hidrostal founder, Martin Stähle and patented in 1961. The pump was originally developed for use in the fisheries industry to transport fish from the boat for further processing without damaging them. This pump design was a tremendous success and widely imitated once the patent expired. Since then Hidrostal has continued to refine the screw centrifugal impeller and today, offers tailored designs for various application areas.
We have in-depth experience manufacturing high-quality pumps. For over 60 years, we have supplied pump systems to all branches of industry and other sectors with a focus of our work in the area of wastewater. We are committed to developing new products as well as adapting existing products to the respective usage location. In so doing, we ensure that our customers benefit from a long service life as well as the outstanding energy efficiency of our pumps.

Since Martin Stähle founded it in Peru back in 1957, Hidrostal has been an independently operating, owner-run company. At Hidrostal, we’ve always believed that being independent is the best prerequisite for reaching our own goals and that financing ourselves forms the basis for independence. Our independence allows us to make free entrepreneurial decisions for the benefit of our customers, employees and the company.
High-quality products and a continual commitment to improvement form the basis of our company. We achieved this with our qualified and motivated employees, the best possible work materials and in-depth quality controls. That’s why we also invest in an exceptionally high level of vertical integration.
When it comes to developing our products, we also strive for utility value such as service life, cost-efficiency and natural energy efficiency. Hidrostal pumps boast an above-average service life and are also low-maintenance.
Sustainability and protecting the environment have been an integral part of Hidrostal’s philosophy since it was founded. This is reflected not only by our strategies and decisions as a company, but also in the values practiced by the company’s owners and employees. Hidrostal products are intended to be used for sensible purposes, to promote human health and protect the environment.
The largest share of Hidrostal’s customers operate in the municipal and industrial wastewater sector. In the 1960s, the first pumps were commissioned in Swiss water treatment plants. Since then, Hidrostal has equipped numerous pump stations and water treatment plants around the world. Depending on the respective market structure, we work directly with operators, engineering and planning offices or plant builders. Whatever form of cooperation we engage in, we are committed to optimally configuring the pump so that it operates with the best efficiency over the long term thereby achieving an optimal energy balance and long service life.
Pumps from Hidrostal are also widely used in industrial processes. In many cases, Hidrostal comes into play when the right solution for the job isn’t readily apparent. A complex pumping task can only be effectively solved if the entire system is taken into consideration. The long-standing experience and inventive genius of Hidrostal have given rise to many unconventional solutions. Since its inception, research and development work at Hidrostal have always accounted for current market requirements.
