From a garage startup to a global technology leader Drinking water is one of the most precious resources in the world. It has been our focus at Hawle for more than 70 years. Clean drinking water means life. Life means commitment. That’s why we provide the most reliable connections for drinking water supply around the world. Our success story began in 1948 with an idea for a revolutionary pipe connection for drinking water pipelines. Based in Vöcklabruck, the Hawle Austria Group is now a manufacturer and distributor of top-quality heavy-duty valves. These products have been manufactured for generations and are used all over the world from the source right through to the connection in the house.
