Our History

Our roots go back to the year 1758, when the St.-Antony-hut was founded in the heart of industrial Germany, in Oberhausen. Over time it grew to "Gute-Hoffnungs-Huette". Its abbreviation can still be found in our brand name "GHH RAND".

Our newer success story in compressed air began with the invention of the first dry running screw compressor in the 1950’s – a strong example of our pioneering achievements and ongoing capabilities. Our unique and well proven knowledge and experience within the oil free arena, continues to be relied upon across the globe. Our goal is always to provide products with the highest levels of quality that can be integrated into your packaged solutions providing you and your customers with complete peace of mind. This can only be achieved with experience and quality procedures developed over the years.
