Ideas that make life at home comfortable, safe and easier - that's what everything at HAILO has been about since the company was founded.
In 1947, the then 33-year-old mechanical engineer Rudolf Loh founded the Metallwarenfabrik Rudolf Loh GmbH. In the period of reconstruction after the 2nd World War, he initially produced medical furniture, metal beds and hot-water bottles. Soon the product range was extended by watering cans and waste bins. In 1954 the safety ladder for households followed. Only a few years later, HAILO launched a revolution on the market, which, with its lightweight material, was to simplify everyday life for many households: the aluminium household ladder. The appearance of its red hinge point was immortalised in the design of the company logo, and this successful model made HAILO the market leader.
After Rudolf Loh's death in 1971, his son Joachim took over the company and consistently pushed the internationalisation of HAILO. At the beginning of 2009, the family business passed into the 3rd generation of owners: Joachim Loh handed over to his son Sebastian. Under his leadership, HAILO repeatedly underlined its own innovative strength with new products such as the stairs platform TP1 or the HAILO Fresh, which is equipped with a plasma module for odour neutralisation.
