Every product has a history and our HIGHFIL filter systems likewise have their unique own history.
In 2009, a good friend of our company came up with the idea; namely to develop a filter system for water treatment, especially for Koi ponds, as there has hitherto been no ideal filter solution available for this area. We thereby found in the person of Wladimir Weiß, a very gifted and highly motivated mechanical engineer, who enthusiastically accepted this task as part of his thesis at the company JHT Jakobs-Houben-Technologie. The result was a lively project between us, in particular our pond experts and Mr. Weiß, who from then on spent many hours at the pond with the first pilot system.
In March 2010 it was finally time for the long awaited moment, Mr. Weiß finished his degree thesis with flying colours and our innovative HIGHFIL (High Filtration) filter system was shortly afterwards ready for use at the facilities of our first customers (with Koi and swimming ponds). In addition to a new product, we also won over a new employee, Mr. Weiß, who is since then responsible for the HIGHFIL division in our company and for the advancing of further developments.
All HIGHFIL products are “Made in Germany”; they are manufactured here in our production in Hückelhoven. We are proud of the fact that we have already delivered over 200 filter systems and over 250 pumps to our customers. So far, our products are in use in Germany, England, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Malaysia; and our first European HIGHFIL sales centre is being planned.
We are pleased to provide you with a deep insight into our exclusive HIGHFIL product world.
