Milestones at Humbaur GmbH


Anton Humbaur founds a factory agency for agricultural machinery in Donauwörth. The product scope includes trailers, ploughs and grain mills.


The sales of agricultural machinery declines. Anton Humbaur decides to include new products in the sales program.


The company moved to Gersthofen into the newly built warehouse with office building in 1980. The first car trailers are sold in the following year. Humbaur imports them from Italy and adapts them to the German market.
