regardless of the size of the room or the materials used in the architecture, the hager group is present behind the scenes with optimized technical implementation



often, we don’t see the really important things – and only actually notice them once they are missing. this thought can be applied to many things in life, of course, but it is an easy one to prove in relation to the building industry, and in particular to intelligent building technology that runs in the background while ensuring the functionality and longevity of architectural ideas.

building technology for a long-term future

the team at german electrical specialist hager support architects and planners with individually adaptable strategies for achieving precisely such technical infrastructures, characteristic of so many modern buildings. the saarland-based company offers everything that’s required for well-thought-out concepts in the areas of energy distribution, energy efficiency, cable routing, smart building control and safety technology.


hager is not alone in standing for this comprehensive approach, the expertise of other brands in the group such as berker and elcom has also enriched the product and service range for many years. whether it’s a single product or a customized overall solution, the group’s wide range is characterized by simple installation, ease of use, as well as high standards in terms of safety, quality and aesthetics.

the right solution for each architectural project

a team of 11,500 people ensures that solutions are available in over 100 countries. in-house manufacturing means that bespoke solutions with specific dimensions, unusual materials, and personalized color ideas and special configurations can also be produced. with hager, it’s all under one roof.


in the early years of the company’s 65-year history, it became known for its meter and distribution cabinets. today, however, the company provides all-encompassing infrastructures with award-winning designs and a holistic portfolio that leaves nothing chance in terms of a building’s electrical requirements, whether in the residential, industrial or commercial construction sector.

there are many references that hager can point to, such as the waterworks in hamburg or the charlottenhöfe in berlin, but one building, in particular, stands out: the hager forum in obernai. the architecture of sauerbruch hutton architects impressively illustrates the future of the company and at the same time reflects company values that include tradition, innovation, sustainability – and modesty despite perfection.
