HÜPPE company history
From the very beginning the name HÜPPE has had an excellent ring among traditional German companies. The path to today's international business has always been based on uncompromising awareness of quality. When HÜPPE developed the first real shower enclosure in 1966, a completely new market sector opened up. Undaunted, we asserted our defining role here and have constantly developed our market position - with high quality components and leading designs. Opt for HÜPPE and you can depend on innovative technology and a company background stretching over 120 years. We have set down milestone after milestone along the way.
