Dr.-Ing. E.h. Hans Huber and his brother Karl-Josef Huber have given up their position as CEOs but will stay with the company as members of the supervisory board.

With Hans Huber’s son Georg Huber and Dr.-Ing. Oliver Rong, son-in-law of Karl-Josef Huber, the sixth Huber generation has taken over the management of the company that has been family owned for 175 years.

With effect from 1st January 2010 Georg Huber is CEO of HUBER SE and further in charge of finances and personnel. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Rong is Vice CEO and in addition in charge of production, engineering/design and purchasing.
Dr.-Ing. Johann Grienberger (in charge of technology) and Rainer Köhler (in charge of sales) complete the board of directors.

In 1968, when the two brothers Hans and Karl-Josef Huber took over the former Hans Huber GmbH from their father, the company counted just about 25 employees. By focusing on the material stainless steel and the water sector they managed to develop the locally acting company into a global player. Today, with 500 employees at its headquarters in Berching, HUBER manufactures more than 2000 machines each year in its state-of-the-art factory that is highly specialised on processing stainless steel. Over 25,000 HUBER machines have been sold worldwide since the nineteen eighties. HUBER's global presence in over 60 countries consists of 25 subsidiary offices and numerous agencies throughout the international market for wastewater treatment, sludge treatment and process technology. In total, about 900 employees worldwide work for the HUBER group.

The young generation of the Huber family with Georg Huber and Dr. Rong emphasize they will continue to pursue the policy Hans Huber and Karl-Josef Huber have felt committed to.
It is also their goal to develop and produce in Berching innovative products and solutions for the international markets and sell them all over the world via HUBER’s worldwide network of subsidiaries, agencies and representative offices.
As supervisory board members, Hans and Karl-Josef Huber will certainly also in the future contribute their valuable expertise that is backed by decades of experience.
