HARTING Inc. of North America celebrates its anniversary

HARTING Inc. of North America was joined by the Harting family (center) and many customers to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

For some 25 years now, HARTING Inc. of North America has been a reliable point of contact for Technology Group customers on the American continent.

To celebrate this anniversary, members of the Harting family travelled to the subsidiary in Elgin with the German management team to join customers and many invited guests in congratulating our colleagues there in person. At the beginning of the event, guests had a chance to tour the production facility and experience at firsthand what the company is about. Guests were then treated to a happy mix of artistic, magic and music performances. In his welcome speech, Personally Liable Partner Dr. Ing.-E.h. Dietmar Harting reminded everyone of how HARTING had grown in North America from being a subsidiary focused on individual customers to what is now a company supplying markets across the entire continent. “HARTING’s success here is down to our employees, ceaseless product innovation and our loyal customers, whom I would like to thank for their excellent cooperation.”

In preparation for the company’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the reception area and casino in the commercial building underwent widespread remodeling and modernization. “Creating a pleasant working environment that will encourage employees to do their best is especially important to us”, explained Margrit Harting, who opened the new casino as all employees looked on. HARTING USA was founded in 1986 in Hoffmann Estates, Illinois, and has been based in Elgin, Illinois since 1998. In 2005, the distribution site for the USA, Canada and Mexico saw the addition of its own production facility. This is where products from the HARTING Integrated Solutions circuit board technology division and customized cabling solutions are produced.
