With the move to the new company building in 2006, the company expanded its product range and has since received several awards, including the “Schrittmacher” in 2007 and the Austrian national emblem for quality products in 2010. Through continuous innovation, HOVA Maschinenbau has achieved a leading position in the region.

    20 years of HOVA Maschinenbau GmbH

Highest quality as standard

After several awards and prizes for the quality of HOVA Maschinenbau GmbH, the next step was the introduction of a quality management system according to EN ISO 9001:2015 which reflects our company-wide quality concept.

HOVA Maschinenbau GmbH is the first and only Austrian company in the vacuum lifting technology sector to be certified according to EN ISO 9001:2015.

Our practised quality management supports us in the continuous change and improvement process of these success factors. It always helps to ensure suitable framework conditions and to organise our knowledge in the company in a sustainable way. It creates “company quality” that is a pleasure to work with.

The quality of our products and services requires, in addition to the quality of our operational processes, above all the commitment of personal quality from each individual in the company. Only in this way can we guarantee our customers “company quality” and the best possible benefits. This is demonstrated by reliability, competence, seriousness and flexibility.

An expression of this “company quality” also includes the numerous improvements and ideas of our employees, from which the TOP3 are evaluated and awarded every year.

We do not compromise on the quality of our vacuum lifters, manipulators and other handling systems. We are very pleased to have been awarded the Austrian emblem in 2010 – as the only company in the lifting technology sector.

The Austrian national emblem is awarded to companies that have made extraordinary contributions to the Austrian economy. It proves the high quality of our systems, which are exclusively in the premium range. We are very proud of this record and see it as a quality standard that we have to live up to in every project.
