Introducing Ködispace 4SG
Workshop about our new edge sealing system

Starting next year, the Helmut Hachtel GmbH will be introducing the new Ködispace 4SG edge sealing system, which completely replaces the conventional edge sealing system consisting of spacers, desiccant and primary sealant. To be optimally prepared, our employees took part in an extensive workshop about the new product.

As an environmentally conscious company, we are particularly concerned with the sustainability of our materials and products. The system ensures permanent gas tightness, offers maximum energy efficiency, best insulation values and a unique look and aesthetics.  With Ködispace 4SG, we are including a highly innovative and sustainable product in our portfolio, with which we can make an active contribution to climate protection thanks to its outstanding properties.

Helmut Hachtel GmbH's 50th Jubilee
"Leben mit Glas" - since 1972

Last Friday, owner and managing director Patric Hachtel invited all employees and their families to our big anniversary celebration. After more than two years of corona-related delays, we could finally celebrate with ice cream, cake and a barbecue buffet. There was also plenty to do for the children - a large bouncy castle provided much fun for our youngest guests.

Helmut Hachtel founded the company back in 1969 as a one-man operation, which was then converted to a limited liability company (GmbH) in 1972. So this year we celebrated not only the 50th anniversary of the GmbH, but also the 53rd anniversary of the glass company.

We say Thank You!

On Christmas Eve, the Helmut Hachtel GmbH and the Hotel Hohenlohe under the management of Volker Dürr surprised the medical and nursing staff of the intensive care and covid stations at Diak Klinikum.
A total of 70 delicious care packages from the hotel kitchen, which were prepared by hardworking hands early in the morning, could be received by the staff at the Diak. The nursing staff of the Gottlob-Weißer-Haus also received 35 care packages as a thank you for their daily commitment to the senior citizens. Everything was thought of from roast beef, salmon, vegetarian to vegan - no wishes were left unfulfilled. 

With this small gesture we just want to say thank you - for the tireless commitment that our nursing staff provides every day!
