Whilst HUBER products have been supplied to the UK market since the 1980s, in the early years products were sold through a sales agent.

HUBER’s history in Germany spans over 175 years and the company has gained a reputation for quality and reliability, having supplied over 33,000 units worldwide. In the UK the tradition of innovation and service has continued, with the company providing a wide range of equipment from CSO screens, inlet screens, screenings handling, sludge thickening and dewatering , through to tertiary filtration as well as solutions for thermal energy recovery. To date in the UK around 4,500 machines have been installed.

As pioneers in the industry, one example of its success is the HUBER ROTAMAT® Ro9 Microstrainer, a fully stainless steel screen with integral screenings washing and dewatering .  Features such as  an enhanced washing system, bearing wear indicator, low power consumption and integral frost protection  have helped make this a market leader for small combined inlet screens, with over 1,000 units installed in the UK. 

The company has come a long way since the early days and now employs over 70 staff at its head office in Wiltshire, and its regional offices in Rotherham, Perth and Belfast.  

“Huber Technology has built a strong reputation across the municipal and industrial sectors by providing high quality products, innovative solutions and after sales service to match” explained David Thompson, Engineering and Operations Director, who along with Sales Director Nick Hunt, helped set up the company. “The future looks bright as we continue to develop new markets for our equipment and exciting new products continue to break new ground”
