Headlong development 

The former blacksmith Eugen Hornberger and the advice bureau run by Gerhard Schuler were the starting point for a unique success story.

In 1960, Hornberger and Schuler founded the company Hornberger Maschinenbau oHG in Schopfloch in the Black Forest. Two years later, the development of the world’s first edge-banding machine marked the start of the company’s impressive upward rise – to become a successful global player and system partner whose expertise spans every area of the woodworking industry.
