Milestones at Humbaur GmbH
Anton Humbaur founds a company in Donauwörth as a factory representative for agricultural machinery. The original product range includes trailers, ploughs and flour mills.
Agricultural machinery sales decline. Anton Humbaur decides to include new products in his product range.
The company moves to Gersthofen in 1980 and occupies the newly-built warehouse with office building. The first trailers up to 3.5 t are sold in the following year. Humbaur imports them from Italy and adapts them to the German market.
