On June 21, 2020, a smouldering fire broke out in the evening around 6 p.m. in the incoming goods department of the Barbing plant, where HAWE Hydraulik SE's 100% subsidiary HAWE Micro Fluid GmbH is based. This subsidiary joined the HAWE Group in May 2019 through the acquisition of HOEBIGER Automatisierungstechnik.
Criminal investigations have been underway since Monday, as arson is suspected. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the fire. However, due to the heavy smoke development, all areas are being thoroughly investigated. The customers are informed about possible delays in delivery by their personal contact persons in the sales department.
It is already being examined whether a hall for storage and assembly can be rented in the immediate vicinity. The upcoming examinations and clean-up work will, however, take several more weeks until normal operations can be resumed.
