Hako Bau was founded in Hannover in 1967 by Harald Fürhölter, the father of the current managing director Lars Fürhölter. Hanover was even then chosen because of its central location and highway proximity. Harald Fürhölter started trading, servicing and repairing compressors and pneumatic tools. Therefore the company name HAnnover KOmpressoren BAU!
The address ³ Hanover - at Fuhrenkampe² quickly became a starting point for all those who had to deal with compressed air. Hako Bau became the absolute specialist for all questions concerning compressed air. The rental business was quickly added to the trade. Today, Hako Bau has over 25 compressors of 2.6 m3 / min. - 7 bar up to 27 m3 / min. - 25 bar in the rental park.
