Possehl is a diversified, globally active technology group. With around 13,000 employees in more than 30 countries, we recently generated consolidated sales of more than 4.4 billion euros. This makes the Possehl Group one of the most important privately managed companies in Germany. The name “Possehl” stands for entrepreneurship, diversity, innovation and responsibility – and has done so for almost 175 years. Under the roof of Possehl-Holding we unite ten business divisions that are independent of each other. We manage more than 200 companies in a decentralized manner so that the necessary decisions are made directly in their markets. We combine such sector diversity with a high level of innovative strength, thus ensuring the long-term success and high stability of the group.
Together with the parent company Harburg-Freudenberger Maschinenbau GmbH, the HF Group is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Lübeck L. Possehl & Co. mbH. Under the umbrella of the Harburg-Freudenberger Maschinenbau GmbH, we provide the rubber and rubber-processing industry with a range of machines for all key stages of production - from raw material processing to rubber processing up to vulcanisation. In addition, we develop and manufacture machines and systems for the edible oil industry.
The HF Group consists of three business divisions: HF Mixing Group, HF TireTech Group, HF FoodTech Group.

Engineering, technical know-how, state-of-the-art processes in manufacturing as well as established and experienced procurement, marketing and sales structures and a broad-based service network offer synergy effects across various industries.
