HAHN Group MOBILE.EXPO celebrates its start in Bettlach

The HAHN Group MOBILE.EXPO exhibition truck made its first stop at the HAHN Robotics Network in Bettlach, Switzerland, from September 20th to 23rd, 2021.

Managing director Björn Culmone and his deputy Andrea Hert are happy about the successful start of the event series at their location. After all, it is a great opportunity to draw additional attention to their site and to invite regional customers and partners to meet again. The organization of events of this scale is a result of the successful cooperation within the HAHN Group. This company network demonstrates its strengths particularly in projects or larger orders through the exchange of technologies and competencies as well as development, construction and service from a single source.

The highlights of the MOBILE.EXPO in Bettlach include the numerous exhibits from the various subsidiaries of the HAHN Group, which are touring as a permanent exhibition with the trade fair truck. The individual locations also exhibit their own products and technologies. In Bettlach, for example, you could admire a training cell from DAHL Automation and the Flexibowl, for which HAHN Robotics is the exclusive distributor in Switzerland.

A special thanks goes to the sponsors OnRobot and Kistler, who also accompanied the event in Bettlach. We are very pleased that we had the opportunity to enjoy such an extraordinary event in Switzerland with customers and partners as well as our families and friends.

HAHN Group sets the course for the future

The HAHN Group is preparing for further growth.

With the reorganization of the investment structure by RSBG SE, the investment company for medium-sized companies of the RAG Foundation, RSBG Automation & Technologies GmbH is created as a new corporate platform. This also results in a broader potential and further synergies for the HAHN Group. The previous CEO of the HAHN Group, Thomas Hähn, will be in charge of the new platform. The previous managing director Philipp Unterhalt will take over the helm of the HAHN Group on April 1, 2021. Together with Axel Greschitz (CFO), the further expansion of the group in factory automation is driven forward. Additional locations are to be opened in the next few months.

RSBG Automation & Robotics Technologies GmbH as a new company platform enables growth in further business areas through the use of technical and organizational synergies

With the establishment of RSBG Automation & Robotics Technologies, RSBG SE opens up the possibility for further technology investments besides the HAHN Group. The HAHN Group is a 100 percent stake in the new platform and focuses on automation and robotics in the industrial environment. In addition, further investments in automation and robotics in non-industrial areas are planned.

Further development of the management team underlines the stability and continuity of the HAHN Group

The management of RSBG Automation & Robotics Technologies is taken over by Thomas Hähn, founder of HAHN Automation and longstanding CEO of the HAHN Group. In the future, as CEO of RSBG Automation & Robotics Technologies, he will be responsible for all activities in the area of automation & robotics, and will therefore continue to be strategically linked to the HAHN Group.

Philipp Unterhalt takes over the management of the HAHN Group. Together with Axel Greschitz as CFO, he will push the next growth step and promote the diversification of the company network. Unterhalt will take up his new role as CEO of the HAHN Group on April 1, 2021.

“I am pleased to introduce Philipp Unterhalt as the new CEO of the HAHN Group. He has demonstrated outstanding strategic orientation. With his international experience and value-based management style, he is the ideal candidate for the further development of the HAHN Group. I really appreciate our cooperation and look forward to continuing it in the new constellation,” said Thomas Hähn, CEO RSBG Automation & Robotics Technologies GmbH.

Philipp Unterhalt has been with the HAHN Group since 2014 and worked as its managing director since 2019. Together with Thomas Hähn he developed the concept of the HAHN Group as a platform for entrepreneurially managed automation companies and managed all transactions of the group of companies. Under his leadership, the new companies were integrated and the digital strategy was also developed and implemented. In addition to the operational business, the 39-year-old is also responsible for corona management at the HAHN Group. The economist lives with his family in Essen.

“The HAHN Group is a fascinating group of companies and entrepreneurs. Due to the network character, we can use the synergies of a large company and still be very close to the customer with innovative solutions,” explains Unterhalt. “I am really looking forward to working with the entire team in order to continue our successful strategy: organic growth, supplemented by technological expansion as well as expansion of the business in additional industries and the strengthening of global activities.”

Into the future with mobile robotics

The HAHN Group continues to grow even during the pandemic. Incoming orders across the Group in 2020 increased by 21 percent compared to the previous year, in particular due to orders in the healthcare sector. The focus of the current year is, among other things, on growth in the area of mobile robotics. Two more locations for the HAHN Robotics Network are to be established in southern and eastern Germany this spring. Mobile robotics enables the support of logistics processes in production with minimal integration effort and thus offers even for smaller companies interesting automation solutions that quickly pay for themselves.

The HAHN Group Sales Roadshows – an event review

In September and October the HAHN Group organized several localized sales road shows as an alternative to the annual sales conference. Usually around 70 German-speaking sales employees from the various HAHN Group subsidiaries meet in one place to exchange ideas and develop their networks. Due to the travel and assembly restrictions of the corona pandemic, however, the event had to take place in a smaller scale. Therefore, it took place in several regions and was carried out with smaller groups at each location.

The sales staff met at three HAHN Group sites in Germany: at HAHN Automation in Rheinböllen, at HAHN Robotics in Diepenau, and at Waldorf Technik in Engen. The first day started with the presentation of the new company presentation with many insights into the development of the corporate group by Thomas Hähn, CEO of the HAHN Group. On top of that, a presentation of the latest standard products, such as Smart Solutions, Mobile Robots and the Palletizing Kit took place. The second day of the roadshow featured a local factory tour and joint workshops.

These product presentations and the exchange with one another were of central importance for the sales teams in order to get to know the solutions of the sister companies within the HAHN Group, as well as to discuss the possible combinations for customized systems with standard solutions.

“We are impressed by every one of you. That is why we encourage the exchange of ideas and networking between our teams,” Thomas Hähn told his audience. “With the HAHN Group and our subsidiaries, we still have a lot of potential for growth. That is why we invest in you and give you the security you all need so that you can continue to do your great work. ”

Equipped with lots of new information and marketing tools, the sales teams return to their workplaces. Building on the positive feedback of this event series it will be repeated next year at other HAHN Group locations. In addition, the HAHN Group plans to promote closeness to their customers, which is why starting in spring 2021, the HAHN Group will implement mobile trade fairs or road shows with the motto “Advanced Automation”. The respective sales teams can arrange individual appointments with their customers and present the latest product innovations Smart Solutions, Mobile Robots and Palletizer on site and in person. So far, three events are planned at three different locations in Germany. However, this concept will soon be expanded. With the help of the mobile road show, customers and salespeople no longer have to forego personal contact, but have the opportunity for exchange while adhering to the current hygiene and safety requirements.

On an international scale the HAHN Group is planning for a series of digital training events, in order to make the content of the German sales roadshow accessible to all. This event series is already in development for January and February 2021 in order to successfully kick off the new year.
