hähnel industries ltd is one of the leading manufacturers of power products for camcorders and digital cameras. Having celebrated over 50 years in business, hähnel has an excellent reputation in R&D, and a well-known history of quality products and excellence in design.
From humble beginnings as a distributor of professional movie equipment in Köln, Germany, hähnel has progressively developed over time, and the business continues to grow from strength to strength.
In 1958, hähnel industries ltd. first started trading under the hähnel logo in Germany. In 1975, it opened up a production company in Bandon, Co. Cork, Ireland, which has progressively grown over the years.
In June 2007, hähnel industries ltd. opened its new offices in Bandon. The hähnel headquarters still remains in Co. Cork with shipping to Ireland, UK and Europe, and its new state-of-the-art premises are a reflection of the prosperity and continuing expansion of the company.
During the last 50 years, the company has had many achievements. It was the first to develop the world’s only Motorised Splizer for editing 8mm film. From there, it brought out a slide viewer with a built-in screen, and in recent years, designed the first and only optical zoom light that gives even light distribution. hähnel then progressed into the charger market with the Pro 9000 high-tech charging technology, and thereafter developed the world’s first plug-in charger for Li-lon batteries, the Digital PowerStation DCL.
hähnel industries has well-established distributors throughout Europe with over 40 countries now representing the hähnel brand.
