OUR PROMISE

The demand for quality

Our systems meet the highest quality standards. This motto has been true since our company was

founded. The goal to build the best machines is lived by us every day. In order to maintain the high

quality level and be able to optimize the systems further, key components of our machines are manufactured in-house. Our suppliers are subject to the same high quality standards we also impose on ourselves. We strive to meet and exceed our customers‘ expectations of our machines and production lines.

 

The innovation leader

Our aim is to continually surprise customers with new product ideas and efficiency-enhancing

innovations. Our experienced design engineers and developers continually provide new solutions that

improve the existing machinery and make our facilities even more efficient. Under the motto “Recipes for Efficiency“, we seek to find the optimal balance between investment and Return on Investment. Issues such as energy efficiency, resource efficiency and the best possible deployment of personnel are some of these ingredients that we pay great attention to. In addition, the system’s high level of availability is a key factor for commercial success. We therefore place great emphasis on the design of our equipment so as to ensure the highest level of system reliability throughout its service life.

 

The service concept

At Haas the service concept has a very high priority. It is the backbone of a successful partnership.

Beginning with the initial product ideas through to customized maintenance and service packages,

the optimization of systems, as well as training courses, we offer a full array of services that optimize

the production process throughout the entire lifecycle.

In addition to enduring, well-established confectionery and bakery products, the ability to create and

produce innovative products with different flavors and designs are a critical success factor for our

customers. During the development of these products we support you with the extensive experience

and expertise of our Tech Centers and food technologists.

Highly trained technicians from our continuously expanding service network get to our customers in

the shortest possible time. Ensuring the prompt availability of spare parts is just as natural for Haas as is sharing our knowledge and expertise with customers on training courses.

 

Employees

Our employees form the basis of our company's success.

We therefore strive to create a work environment and overall conditions which enable our employees to realize their full potential. Haas attaches great importance to a sound education of the company's youngest employees. This is confirmed by the excellent apprenticeship training in the technical and business administration professions as well as in the internationally oriented trainee program for college and university graduates. We are proud of the fact that many of our employees have for decades contributed their expertise to our company's success and were able to align their career prospects with the multitude of career options offered at Haas. This helps us to create a continuously expanding knowledge base which forms the foundation of our ability to fulfil customer needs and wishes and powers our new innovations.
