"Water - The Essence of Life But Elusive to Many" :

This statement of the World Bank describes the problematic situation of potable water supply and wastewater disposal in many countries, that was the motto of the International Wastewater Symposium which took place at the "Europa-Halle" in Berching, Bavaria, on 26 September 2002 on the occasion of Mr. Hans Huber's 60th birthday.

As the managing director of the company he has meanwhile dedicated 35 years of his working life to drinking water and sewage treatment, developing the former regionally operating company into an international group company that exports the machines and plants manufactured in modern production facilities into more than 50 countries, with the name HUBER representing excellent quality and continuous innovation. Whoever inquires who is the driving force behind such a successful development will get the same answer: Mr. Hans Huber.

It was therefore only natural that especially new and innovative approaches to solutions for water treatment were brought to discussion on the occasion of this International Wastewater Symposium.

Renowned scientists and professors from Germany, Japan, the Czech Republic and Morocco reported about the situation in different countries or presented fields of application and development perspectives of alternative wastewater treatment concepts. More than 200 visitors who came not only from Germany and the adjoining states but also from the USA, South Africa and Japan, followed the presentations and had a lively discussion.

At the end, Karl-Josef Huber, who has managed the Hans Huber AG since 1969 together with his brother, eventually took the audience on a journey through the years from 1786 to these days. He described the company's development from the small coppersmith shop into a regional business and finally internationally operating company against the background of the parallel development of wastewater technology, global development and world history. Finally, Karl-Josef Huber expressed his most sincere thanks to his brother for the extent of his involvement in the company, together with the very best wishes for the future, which would hopefully remain dedicated to the company's development.
