Hettich becomes majority shareholder in sliding door specialist KUHN

Another milestone in the history of both companies: In March 2021, the Hettich Group took a majority stake in sliding door specialist KUHN from Bünde.

The high-quality individual solutions for sliding door and partitioning systems will be marketed by Hettich with immediate effect.

KUHN will remain independent as a brand and company. Company founder Norman Kuhn will continue to be responsible for the product portfolio and provide innovative technical solutions as a co-partner and technical managing director.

Hettich has had broad access to dealers, joiners and interior designers for decades. Now, the strategic partnership with KUHN is expected to create new synergy effects. The KUHN product range is based on a platform from which sliding door and room divider systems can be configured. Hettich is thus supplementing its existing sliding door range for the first time with carcase-free sliding elements. The joint objective of both companies is to expand the business for these systems in a targeted manner with sales partners. It will initially be launched in the trade/craft segment in the DACH and BENELUX regions.

"The KUHN range with its solutions for "sliding in space" perfectly complements our portfolio. Through our sales structure and access to the trade, we can further expand the business together very well," explains Jan Hübschmann, responsible sales manager at Hettich.

"The participation by Hettich is the decisive milestone in our young company and directs the focus on our core competence with the three central company focuses: Product development, software development and manufacturing from quantity 1. The additional sales cooperation enables the KUHN brand to enter new markets. I am very pleased that from now on we are shaping the future together with Hettich", adds Norman Kuhn, Managing Director Technology/Development.

Already at this year's (link: text: HettichXperiencedays) selected KUHN products will be presented in the trend area New Work under the motto "Spaces in Motion".
