Company foundation in Görlitz
HEIN can look back on a long and eventful history. Master butcher Georg Hein laid the foundation for the company with his butcher store in Görlitz in the 1930s. The business flourished. Until the end of the Second World War, the butcher’s shop on Moltkestraße was considered the top address for gourmets..
Opening store in Hasbergen
His son, Dieter Hein, continued the family tradition and opened a small store in Osnabrück in 1961.
Laying of the foundation stone of EG-Fleischwarenfabrik Dieter Hein in Hasbergen-Gaste
In 1975, today’s meat products factory started operations just outside the gates of Osnabrück, in Hasbergen-Gaste. This marked the beginning of a phase of strong expansion. The company premises were successively extended. The development of the HEIN group of companies began with the establishment of new plants, bases and holdings. This set the decisive course for the international orientation of the company’s activities, especially for the distribution of meat specialities on the European and American markets. Joint ventures were established with international partners such as Vienna Beef (Chicago/USA), Lunden Food (Turku/Finland) and Casa Westfalia (Vulpellac/Spain).
Way ahead of the times. One of the first companies with a bio-filter system.
The environmental idea: The complete exhaust air is filtered through approx. 20,000 cubic meters of humus layer. Therefore no smell nuisance and clean exhaust air for the environment.
Since 1996, the EG-Fleischwarenfabrik Dieter Hein has also been producing again in Görlitz, where the company’s success story once began.
Together with his sons, Georg and Claus Hein, Dieter Hein drove the development of the company in Hasbergen-Gaste. Today, the EG-Fleischwarenfabrik, Hasbergen and Görlitz, is managed by Dieter and Georg Hein. Under the motto “More ideas – more taste”, sausage and meat product specialties are produced in a modern company for all of Europe.
Since October 2011, the family business Dieter Hein has been assisted by the new managing director and shareholder Ulrich Rahmann, an experienced expert in the industry. With him, new markets were developed and strategies were worked out, so that the course for the future continues to be set for success. Ulrich Rahmann has joined the EG-Fleischwarenfabrik Dieter Hein as a co-partner with retroactive effect from 01.01.2013.
