Engineer Gerd Hofmann starts the commercial enterprise “Regel- und Messtechnik” in Witten a.d. Ruhr. The new dies casting process developed with his assistance helps his oil burner product line “Taifun” with a highly successful market launch. The company continues its growth at the new location in the town of Rhade in North-Rhine Westphalia.
The new development department develops new models – in the expanded business field of oil and gas burners – ready for mass production. The takeover of the burner manufacturer Convair from Hamburg brings the brand names “Convair” and “Hansa” into the company. Installation of the new systems is subcontracted to a contract manufacturer in Hamburg.
Renaming to Hansa Öl- und Gasbrenner GmbH
Jörg Hoffmann, the founder's son, takes over the management and is still in charge of the company today.
After being renamed to Hansa Öl- und Gasbrenner the company is changed into a public limited company. The constantly increasing demand now requires a new production facility. This production site is selected under socioeconomic aspects and subcontracted to a sheltered workshop in Bremerhaven.
Hansa expands the product range by various boiler units and successfully positions itself – also with the condensing boiler technology available in-house from 2003 – as a system provider for all areas of heating applications.
The company founder Gerd Hoffmann dies, his wife Edeltraut Hoffmann continues to do administrative work and keeps an eye on the future company development as the “grey eminence”.
The HANSA ÖL- und Gasbrenner GmbH celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Hansa presents the new generation of condensing boilers, PEGA, at the ISH trade fair in Frankfurt. The system features a sensational modulation range of 1:20.
