History

More than 25 years of expertise

In the past 25 years we expanded, not only the company size but also our expertise in filter and extraction technology. We develop and build all our systems in Germany and send them in over 80 countries worldwide. We are one of the leading experts in filter and extraction systems.  By now, we have several partners outside of Germany, and one subsidary in North America. They support us in giving you the best possible service. Due to the modular design we can adapt our systems perfectly to your applications.  We can react flexibly and quickly when you make changes to your process, so that your system is optimally adapted to it.

1992

Launch of TBH GbR by Udo Hartmann in Germany

TBH GmbH was founded as TBH GbR in 1992 in Germany. We started as a sole trader, and hired the first employees shortly after.

2001

1,000th system of LN100 sold

 

2004

Construction and moving into the new company building

The first success led to a new building in Straubenhardt-Conweiler. There was more space for our company’s future growth. 

2005

TBH launches the American market

In 2005, we had more than 30 employees. This allowed us to launch the American market, and sold our first filter and extraction systems over there as well.

2011

Expansion of the company building

We enlarged our company's building right in time before growing again.

2012

Awarded with ISO 9001 quality management certificate

One year after expansion, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our company and were awarded with the ISO 9001 quality management certificate.

2016

Launch of the INSPIRE control unit

We launched our new control unit named “Inspire”, which makes the handling of our systems even easier. No expertise is needed to understand and work with our systems. Simple configurations and a plain display with comprehensible symbols ensure an ease of operation. 

2016

New general manager

Solvejg Hartmann took over the family owned business.

2017

Celebrating 25 years TBH

After celebrating 25 years of TBH in 2017, we are more eager to keep increasing our expertise, and to assist you with the best possible service. 

2018

Launch of our new website

We took another major step by launching a new website with more content, pictures and information. Product videos show our systems in all perspectives that would not be possible on single pictures. These new features allow us to clearly illustrate all the details of our filtration and extraction systems.
