50 Years Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau

High-precision temperature control solutions since 1968

2018 we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Peter Huber Kältemaschinenbau. The anniversary year is completely dedicated to our father, the founder and visionary Peter Huber. His innovations in refrigeration technology, above all the revolutionary Unistat technology, have had a lasting impact on the company and even temperature control technology itself. With a pioneering spirit, innovative ideas and sustainable development, my father laid the cornerstone for our present success. We want to continue to be your prime address for innovative and environmentally-compatible temperature control technology in the future.

We do not have to be the biggest, but we do want to be the best.

Chairman of the Board
