In the course of internationalization, HEWI established a subsidiary in the USA in November 2016. The US market offers enormous growth potential for HEWI. Especially with regard to the topic of barrier-free, the market is very developed, but with stigmatizing products.

HEWI offers overarching solutions that can be used equally by all people. As the market leader in the barrier-free sector, HEWI convinces with high-quality and design-oriented solutions. The products stand for durability: High-quality materials, their precise processing and technical know-how enable lasting quality. HEWI offers decades of experience in the field of plastics technology. HEWI has been manufacturing plastic products in its own factory in Mengeringhausen since 1929 and thus stands for the art of engineering made in Germany. HEWI also pursues its claim to functionality and excellent design in the USA.

The North American market has been actively served by the HEWI Inc. subsidiary since January 2017. Sales activities will initially focus on the care and healthcare market and the hotel sector. HEWI offers system solutions that comply with the American Standard for Accessible Construction (ADA). In order to establish the products and solutions in the market, HEWI Inc. relies on the already existing, long-standing cooperation with its trading partner Häfele. HEWI's expertise in accessibility as well as its high level of plastics competence, Häfele's specific industry knowledge and experience, and the common goal of intelligent solutions and outstanding customer service make the companies perfect partners.
