From a business idea to market leaders, shaping the future together – with decades of experience.
In the 1990’s interest and the need for hygiene and food safety significantly began to increase. Josef Meßmer and Peter Wauts recognised this trend. After all, they had years of experience with stainless steel equipment in meat factories. They decided to be actively involved in shaping the future of hygiene and food safety and founded the company PHT – PARTNER for HYGIENE and TECHNOLOGY GmbH in 1998 in Bad Tölz.
Their vision was being a reliable and competent partner for their clients and suppliers that delivers through reliable and sustainable technologies, as well as meets the ever growing demands of the industry. A close proximity to clients and on-site consultation had always been a premise for success for PHT.
This is the reason more branches were founded in South Africa (2007), in Austria (2010) and, as a further milestone the joint venture with Heinz-Josef Mollemeier, the branch in Beckum (2012). Beginning of 2018 market development in the Benelux region was secured through a personal enterprise. Today the PHT group with 70 employees and over 5000 clients is one of the leading outfitters of the modern, up-to-date technology for hygiene and food safety.
