About us

Every paper processing machine, each weighing several tons, which leaves the HOBEMA works in Dormagen is different to its predecessors. The family firm, now over 60 years old, lives from its ability to react flexibly to the needs of its customers all over the world. This is the secret of the company's continued success.


The company was founded in 1938 in Düsseldorf by Hermann H. Raths. Its workforce numbers around 100 employees in production and administration. Processing machines for paper towels and serviettes and non-woven products for the hygiene sector have been manufactured in the Dormagen facilities since 1972. The delivery range also includes rotational cross-cutters for processing paper as well as plastic and aluminum foil. HOBEMA has gained an internationally significant market position with these special machines.


Exports make up some 70% per cent of turnover. Machines bearing the HOBEMA logo can be found in every corner of the globe, Iceland included. A modern design and development department is responsible for implementing new ideas and customers' requests. Each finished machine is accompanied by the company's specialist engineers who install them and supervise the commissioning process. Deliveries of paper from customers arrive regularly in Dormagen to enable the behaviour of the grades used in the receiver country to be tested in trial runs. Further services include a rapid-reaction after-sales service and advice for every customer.
