“UNDERLYING OUR ENTIRE PHILOSOPHY IS ONE SIMPLE AND IMMUTABLE FACT:
PETS ARE NOT ONLY THE HEART OF OUR BUSINESS, THEY ARE THE REASON WE ARE IN BUSINESS.”
Rolf Hagen Jr.
President & CEO
HAGEN was founded in 1955 by Rolf C. Hagen as a one-man company in Montreal/Canada. The first subsidiary in Hamburg/Germany followed in 1959. At that time, the company in Germany still operated under the name "Weltweit Import & Export" (“Worldwide Import & Export”) – rightly so, as it turned out, since today's HAGEN Group includes 6 globally based subsidiaries operating in over 80 countries. With more than 65 years of experience, over 2,000 employees and a worldwide sales area of over 2,000,000 m2, we are one of the largest privately owned production and sales companies for pet supplies in the world.
Driven by the love & passion for animals and with a strong family tradition in the background, the HAGEN Group stands for innovation, design, quality and the enthusiasm for pets. With our core brands Fluval, Exo Terra, Catit, Zeus and HARI we set standards worldwide. Our extensive pet and consumer research networks ensure that we provide fit-for-purpose and animal-friendly pet products.
For more than 65 years, we have produced high-quality, innovative products for the well-being, joy and satisfaction of pets, earning the loyalty and trust of consumers worldwide.
