Since the beginning in 1946 when Kurt Hübner founded the company, HÜBNER has been shaped by a spirit of enterprise, inventiveness and innovation. Today it continues to be this same passion for new solutions that drives the company and its employees. Again and again over the years, new concepts for new products and new markets have been developed and implemented.

It is on this basis that HÜBNER has become the company that it is today: A comprehensive system supplier for transportation technology and the worldwide leader for gangway systems (Mobility), a well recognized specialist for sophisticated elastomer solutions and products, insulation and composite materials (Material Solutions), as well as an up and coming company in the field of laser, terahertz and high frequency technologies (Photonics).

Today the HÜBNER Group consists of more than 30 different companies and has more than 3,300 employees around the world. And HÜBNER products continue to stand out with their high quality workmanship, their superior convenience and their distinctive durability. This high level of quality is to be found in all of the Group’s business sectors and throughout the entire product range.

Making Mobility Happen

Hardly anything in today’s globalized society shapes life as much as mobility. In addition to data and goods, it is people who are on the move more than ever before. As the global leader for gangway systems and a major supplier of bus, rail and airport technology solutions, the HÜBNER Group plays an integral part in this megatrend.

For decades, the company has been delivering innovative products for the transport sector. The extensive portfolio ranges from customized gangway systems, to chassis technology, to driver displays in locomotive cabs and other vehicles, to products for airport technology applications.

With increasing mobility, however, there is also growing demand for pro- tection of the environment and resources. HÜBNER innovations such as lightweight articulation systems or aerodynamically streamlined corru- gated bellows for railway vehicles are making significant contributions to greater energy efficiency in public transportation – while at the same time allowing for higher speeds.

And the materials used in HÜBNER products – many developed specifi- cally for these applications – feature outstanding durability, thus reducing the consumption of resources over the whole product life cycle. HÜBNER has been developing innovative mobility concepts and solutions around the world for decades. These are making mobility happen today and are opening up new mobility horizons for the future.

We Build 1.60 Meters of the Bus

Without HÜBNER, articulated buses would be missing something – exactly 1.60 meters right in the middle of the bus! 1.60 meters equipped with the latest technology and engineering solutions. HÜBNER provides complete, ready-to-install connection systems for all types of articulated and bi-articulated buses in low-floor and high-floor models. These systems include the articulation system, the folding bellows, the energy guidance system, electronic articula- tion control and components for the bus interior.

Complete Systems for Articulated Buses

The HÜBNER Group has a comprehensive range of ready-to-install systems for articulated buses. These integrated systems fulfill all re- quirements in low-floor and high-floor segments of articulated buses. Pre-assembled and delivered just-in-time, these systems allow for simple and economical assembly at the customer’s facilities.

Our product range includes all components that are used in the con- necting segment of articulated buses. The technology and design of all these components is perfectly coordinated, and they can be used with a multitude of different drive concepts and floor heights.

Components of the Complete System

  • Folding Bellows – Robust, flexible and customized as required.
  • Energy guidance systems that fit for every situation
  • Articulation systems for every application

Driving Safety & Comfort Solutions

From mechanical damping systems to electronically controlled models with full diagnostic capabilities – HÜBNER develops and produces damping systems for all drive concepts and operating conditions.

Concept Consultation

During the development of articulated buses, the design demands for implementing an optimal connection of the articulation to the chassis are exceedingly high. Working in close cooperation with customers, HÜBNER provides calculations and strength testing in connection with the overall integration process.

Comfort and Stability Solutions

As part of the HÜBNER Group, HEMSCHEIDT provides components to enhance comfort, stability and safety in buses, commercial vehicles and trains. These are robust and effective high-performance products. They feature low-weight designs and long and reliable product life cycles. For buses, HEMSCHEIDT develops and produces hydropneumatic chassis and wheel guidance systems.

Elastomer Solutions – Protection & Sealing

Rubber and silicone products protect, absorb, seal and insulate – whether as delicate precision components or as seals weighing up to several kilo- grams. For decades, HÜBNER has been successfully processing rubber for the complete range of applications in bus construction. HÜBNER experts have approximately 600 different compound formulas at their disposal as they develop customized rubber-based solutions. The company’s offerings range from consultation, to design, to production – from the prototype to regular serial production. Through the acquisition of the GWU Group in 2019, HÜBNER has now also significantly extended its expertise in the area of door safety sealing systems.

Insulating Materials and Sound Absorption – Making Noise Quieter

Noise protection and insulation play an important role in ensuring passenger comfort and safety on buses. Plastocell specializes in developing and manu- facturing products for this application area. Now part of the HÜBNER Group, the company has been developing solutions for sound insulation and thermal protection for more than 30 years. These products are put to use in many dif- ferent parts of bus vehicles. They play vital roles in absorbing disturbing factors such as the noise and heat emissions of the motor.

Ramp & Lifts – Perfect Access for Every Vehicle Type

The entry systems from HÜBNER Transportation GmbH help to give handicapped persons greater mobility and freedom. Our ramps and lifts for buses fulfill the highest safety and quality standards. For nearly every type of vehicle, we can provide customized solutions – perfectly coordinated with the vehicle design in form and color.

Service from A to Z

HÜBNER not only provides first class products. We also guarantee dependable operating performance and safety, also for years after purchase.
