Hidrostal Values

Independence

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.

Quality

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

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.

Hidrostal Quality and Environmental Policy

Our quality and environmental policy is based on the requirements of DIN ISO 9001:2015 and the EN ISO 14001:2015 standard as well as on the following aspects

Quality: The quality of our products is an important part of the foundation of our business activities. It is an important criterion for the purchase decision and forms a reliable bond to our customers.

Customer orientation: We are aware that our company's success depends on satisfied customers. Therefore, we strive to understand our customers' current and future needs, meet their requirements and exceed their expectations.

Leadership: Leaders create a match between the purpose and direction of the company. They should create and maintain the internal environment in which individuals can fully engage themselves to achieve the company's goals.

Supplier relationship: Hidrostal and its suppliers are interdependent. Good relationships for mutual benefit increase the ability of both sides to create value.

Continuous improvement: Continuous improvement of quality, customer orientation, management and supplier relations increases the overall performance of the organization and is a permanent endeavor of our company. The goal of our company is to manufacture high quality products in an environmentally friendly way. The satisfaction of our customers is at the center of our efforts to achieve a high level of quality and environmental protection. Our goal is to meet their requirements. We therefore use optimal testing methods with modern testing equipment in quality assurance.

Environmental requirements: Hidrostal takes its responsibility towards the environment very seriously and actively contributes to maintaining the ecological balance. For this purpose we consider and evaluate the environmental aspects of our activities, products and services.

Product life cycle: We assess the impact of our products over their entire life cycle, including their use, energy requirements and disposal. Hidrostal advises its customers on environmental and safety aspects.

Information: By regularly providing our employees with knowledge about environmental aspects, we create the basis for independent and creative action.

Environmental regulations: On our own initiative and responsibility we go beyond legal and official regulations and requirements. We also try to incorporate recognizable future developments in environmental legislation into our current actions.

Investments: When making investments, we decide on the best available technology, as far as the appropriateness remains guaranteed and our financial possibilities allow this. We involve our suppliers in the process of continuous improvement and further development of the environmental management system.

Hidrostal Customers

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.

Om Hidrostal

I över 60 år har Hidrostal producerat högkvalitativa pumpar med ett minimalt behov underhåll – allt från små bärbara pumpar till byggplatser eller översvämmade källare upp till tio ton tunga spillvattens- och slampumpar.
Hos Hidrostal lägger vi stor vikt vid en hög grad av egenproduktion och energieffektiva lösningar. Vi levererar tekniskt avancerade specialprodukter till många olika branscher och användningsområden. En pump från Hidrostal är alltid det rätta valet på lång sikt.

Originalet

Pumpen med det karaktäristiska skruvcentrifugalhjulet blev uppfunnet av Hidrostals grundare Martin Stähle och patenterades 1961. Pumpen utvecklades ursprungligen för användning inom fiskenäringen för lossning av fisk från fartygen utan att skada fisken. Denna pumpkonstruktion blev en stor succé, som efter patentets utgång blev kopierad på bred front. Hidrostal har sedan dess vidareutvecklat skruvcentrifugalpumpen och erbjuder idag skräddarsydda lösningar till olika användningsområden.

Din partner inom pumplösningar

Vi har lång erfarenhet av produktion av högkvalitetspumpar. Vi har levererat pumpsystem till alla industriområden och branscher i mer än 60 år, och ett av våra huvudområden är pumpar till spillvatten. Vi lägger stort fokus på vidareutveckling och anpassning av våra produkter till aktuella användningsområden. Därigenom försäkrar vi oss om att våra kunder får nytta av våra pumpars långa livstid och enastående energieffektivitet.

Hidrostals filialer

Under de senaste 60 åren har Hidrostalgruppen varit i ständig tillväxt, och idag är verksamheten organiserad under ett holdingbolag med säte i Neunkirch i Schweiz.
Hidrostal producerar pumpar och komponenter i Schweiz, Ungern, England, Kina och Peru. Hidrostal har egna gjuterier i Schweiz och Peru.
Hidrostal har egna försäljningsorganisationer i Tyskland, Tjeckien, Polen, Belarus, Ungern, Holland, Storbritannien, Danmark, Schweiz, Spanien, Frankrike, Peru, Sydafrika och Australien.
Försäljningsorganisationerna sköter kundkontakterna på de lokala marknaderna. De kan erbjuda skräddarsydda lösningar, teknisk support, service och underhåll. Hidrostals medarbetare är kvalificerade specialister som har stor erfarenhet av pumpdimensionering och hur de skall dimensioneras i förhållande till de unika driftförhållandena ute hos kunderna. Man kan utefter behov allt från enkla pumpar och reservdelar till totallösningar inklusive styrning, armaturer, rörledningar och montage.
Utöver sina egna försäljningsbolag har Hidrostal också ett nätverk av långvariga samarbetspartners som säljer Hidrostals produkter på utvalda marknader.

 

Hidrostals värderingar

Självständighet

Sedan Martin Stähle grundade Hidrostal i Peru 1957 har Hidrostal varit en självständig verksamhet under ägarstyre. Hos Hidrostal har man alltid varit av uppfattningen att självständighet är en förutsättning för att nå sina mål, och att självfinansiering utgör själva grunden för den självständighet. Vår självständighet ger oss möjlighet att fritt ta verksamhetsbeslut som är till fördel för våra kunder, medarbetare och verksamheten i sig själv.

Kvalitet

Produkter av hög kvalitet samt en kontinuerlig strävan mot förbättringar är grunden för vår verksamhet. Detta når vi genom att ha kvalificerade och motiverade medarbetare, det bästa möjliga materialet och omfattande kvalitetskontroller. Därför investerar vi i en ovanligt hög grad av egenproduktion.

Utöver detta är vår målsättning med produktutvecklingen att skapa ett högt brukarvärde, dvs. en lång livslängd, bra driftsekonomi och naturligtvis energieffektivitet. Hidrostalpumpar har en lång livslängd för sin marknad och kräver bara ett minimalt underhåll. 

Ekologisk hållbarhet

Miljöskydd och ekologisk hållbarhet har sedan verksamhetens grundande varit en central del av Hidrostals filosofi. Detta avspeglar sig inte bara i strategier och verksamhetsbeslut, utan det är också en del av de värderingar som förs ut av våra ägare och medarbetare. Hidrostalprodukter skall användas till meningsfulla ändåmål, bidra till människors välmående samt skydda miljön.

 

 

 

Hidrostals kunder

Hidrostal har sin största kundgrupp inom kommunalt och industriellt spillsvatten. Under 1960-talet blev de första pumparna driftsatta i Schweiziska reningsverk. Sedan dess har Hidrostal utrustat mängder av pumpstationer och reningsverk över hela världen. Beroende på den aktuella marknadsstrukturen samarbetar vi direkt med slutanvändare, konsulter, systembyggare och anläggningsföretag. Oavsett samarbetsform lägger vi alltid stor vikt vid en optimal dimensionering av pumparna, så att de även över tid skall arbeta med stor verkningsgrad och optimal energibalans och då med en lång livslängd som resultat.
