HEDKE History

  • The founders background

    In the 1960´s Lothar Hedke was working for german construction companies on projects in Africa and in the Middle East.
    Being responsible mechanical engineer for all the jobsites equipment far away from home with none of the modern communication devices available, this meant to always be prepared and to be ready to improvize.

  • The founders idea

    As many german construction companies went abroad for big projects like harbours and bridges, they were all facing the same problem:
    what will be needed to get the job done?

    With his experience he made the step in the 1970´s to open his own company,
    supplying german companies going abroad and their local JV parrtners with all the equipment that was needed to get the job done!

  • A lot of earth was moved

    Over the years the biggest german, austrian and swiss conctractors became valued customers.
    And many projects were realized with the advise and supply from Mr. Hedke.

    Hedke became more and more a name that stood for engagement, clever solutions and trust.

  • Innovations were pushed

    travelling the world you can discover many innovations.
    And the best were brought home to Europe.
    For example concrete slipformpavers.
    Together with innovative clients the course was set for concrete highways and barrier walls for saver streets.

  • Bridges were build

    Bridge Projects like the High Speed Railway in Taiwan with the clients Hochtief and Bilfinger Berger fund wide recognicion in the industry.

  • The fire was passed on

    Today Hedke GmbH is led by Peter Hedke.
    Having followed his father to jobsites and exhibitions since he was a small boy, the fascination for machines and special solutions was ignited.
    Many valuable lessons were taught.
    We are here to solve clients problems as their partner.

  • we keep the fire burning

    and are proud to see machines that shortly before have only been an idea on a piece of paper become reality and finish a project to the clients full satisfaction.
