The History of Haemmerlin Wheelbarrows

 Haemmerlin Wheelbarrows

Haemmerlin is considered to be the best wheelbarrows provider in the UK market. The name of the Haemmerlin is not just built in one day. It took years to earn an identity that lasts forever. Taking users as their top priority, they design wheelbarrows that suit the conditions. The company was established in 1867 as a metal foundry in France.

Charles Haemmerlin

As the years passed, the foundry turned out to be a factory in 1890 with the hard work and dedication of Charles Haemmerlin along with the support of his son Georges. Georges then originated the production of a metallic wheelbarrow. In 1930 the two sons of Georges also started working in the factory occupying different tasks. One took the job of selling the products that includes quality wheelbarrows, tip-carts, tar sprayers etc and the other focus on modernization of the product resulting in the deliveries expanding all over France and export markets.

Bernard Haemmerlin

The Manager of the Company, Bernard Haemmerlin began to modernize the manufacturing equipments completely in 1981. And within four years of modernization Haemmerlin Ltd. was formulated providing the largest number of manufacturing units across the globe. Further in 1987, the company stepped out towards the West Midlands to enhance the distribution of its products to its customers that resulted in the positive growth of the company. Soon in 2004, it became the best wheelbarrows place and the second brand leader in quality wheelbarrows.


The Chillington manufacturing that was the leading brand at that time proposed the company to divest their wheelbarrow division. The best wheelbarrows manufacturer now started leading the UK markets as they add the top brand Chillington in their portfolio. In 2008, CDH Group acquired Haemmerlin Ltd. CDH was the combination of Centaure, Duarib and Haemmerlin that made it the highest manufacturer in the world as per quality and expertise.
