HOBAS Business Segment
Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics Pipe Systems. Optimized Solutions. Since 1957.
Pischeldorfer Strasse 128, 9020 Klagenfurt, Austria
Expertise for Decades
For almost 60 years HOBAS has stood for high quality, innovative glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRP) pipe systems. In 1957 the first centrifugally cast GRP pipe was produced. Step by step we further developed the design of the pipes, automated the manufacturing process, extended the product range and complemented it with customized fittings.
International Leader in Diameters 150 to 3,600 mm
Providing diameters from 150 to 3,600 mm, HOBAS is now one of the leading international producers of GRP pipe systems. Our products are already being used in more than 100 countries for potable water, wastewater, irrigation, drainage, hydropower, industrial applications, and custom solutions. Whether laid in open trenches, trenchless, overground or under water – end to end the pipes installed to date would circle the globe several times when strung together.
Strong Network for Ideal Solutions
The key factor in this success is our HOBAS Network consisting of production facilities and sales organizations in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and Australia. True to the HOBAS Motto “Make things happen”, HOBAS Experts all around the globe literally work day and night to find ideal solutions for our clients and roll out product innovations on the market.
