Company
History
"We drive development forward - full speed ahead!"

The Hölscher organization was founded in the year 1959 by Heinrich Hölscher, managing the company in conjunction with son Heinz Hölscher.

Starting out exclusively as a contractor for agricultural services, we soon began to diversify and continuously expanded our sphere of activities. From the very start, the name Hölscher Wasserbau has been synonymous with steady growth and versatility. Site water management was one area where we expanded and developed our expertise starting in the early 70's.

In the years that followed, the company continued to move forward in this field, specifically in the area of construction site dewatering.

In addition the areas of enviro-engineering and well construction moved into our focus as well.

Following the untimely death of Heinz Hölscher, Dr.-Ing. Michael Knöfel took over the reins of the organization from 1990 to 2007. With Dr. Knöfel at the helm, Hölscher Wasserbau succeeded in bundling expertise and resources - e.g. by creation of a regional sales network - as well as founding new branches and subsidiaries.

Current managing directors Maria Borgmann and Heinz Hölscher, siblings in the family's third generation, have continued to lead the company along this course since 2004 while keeping today's demands well in focus. Technical expertise, innovation and flexibility position us as a powerful service provider and provide the foundation for our market success - as they have for more than 50 years.
