HARO Focuses on Quality
HARO over the course of time
The years pass and some things change: The small family business, which was founded by Franz Paul Hamberger in 1866 as a matchstick production plant, sawmill and brickyard, is today Germany’s leading parquet manufacturer. Other things stay the same: After more than 150 years, Hamberger remains a family business to this day, managed by the company owners in the fourth and fifth generations.
Values & visions
This company history crosses an important divide between tradition and future: We continue to focus on classic corporate values such as customer and employee orientation, sustainability and a high level of quality awareness as well as on family values that are rooted in home and region. At the same time we always look to the future. We are driven by modern core values such as innovation, economic success, healthy living and sustainability to shape the future with courage and commitment.

PlayWelcome to our family business – a business that has stood for quality and innovation for more than 150 years and that strives to make life and living in the home more comfortable and pleasant with beautiful and natural flooring.
HARO floor coverings
The unique blend of tradition and innovation is also reflected in our HARO branded flooring. We apply cutting-edge production technologies and rely on classic craftsmanship to produce natural floors from the high-quality and sustainable raw material wood – floors that add value to every living environment and transform your house into a home. Our product range includes not only HARO Parquet and the elegant parquet floors in our parkettmanufaktur by HARO range, but also laminate and cork and our DISANO by HARO design floors, our healthy living alternative to traditional PVC floors.
Pioneering ideas for enhanced quality of life and living.
Our primary goal when developing new floors is to create enhanced quality of life within the home. With a keen sense for social trends, we therefore focus on demand-driven innovations that offer distinct added value.
Our floors that are suitable for installation in wet areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms, are a recent example. Whether laminate, design floor or parquet – the variants of our floors that are suitable for installation in wet areas create a completely new and pleasant feeling underfoot in all living areas where water and splashes can occur.
For discerning free-spirited types, our parkettmanufaktur by HARO creates exclusive, top-class floors, which combine the best of traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology in one.
Leaders in environmental and healthcare issues
Designing living spaces with high-quality natural products entails a major responsibility to people and the environment. It is therefore important to us to conserve energy and preserve resources in all our work stages. We therefore strive to ensure short transport routes for our raw materials, we try to minimise our energy consumption and produce green energy in our combined heating and power station. The resulting products impress not only in terms of their quality but also from the perspective of healthy living, sustainability and environmental friendliness. The Blue Angel ecolabel, the “Made in Germany” quality seal and our countless certifications demonstrate the environmental compatibility of our products and the success of this ecological, forward-looking way of thinking and acting.
In the area of accessible living, we take great care to develop durable products that allow people to live an independent life. And not just as practical living assistance, but also focusing on aesthetic and comfortable living – after all practical features and attractive design are not mutually exclusive for us.
