Jos. Hansen was founded in 1919 as a trading company in Hamburg, Germany. The company began trading all kinds of products in Europe but soon concentrated its activities on Africa and the Arabian territories. Consequently, the first subsidiary was established in Yemen in 1934.
JOS. HANSEN & SOEHNE GmbH, having its registered office at Hamburg / Germany, is specialised in the completion of turnkey water supply projects and sewerage treatment plants, as well as the supply, training and commissioning of equipment for industry, infrastructure, health and educational projects in the African region.
Since decades countless projects have been completed to the full employers' satisfaction. Being represented in nine African countries by wholly-owned subsidiaries since the 1950's, JOS. HANSEN has become a major key player amongst well-known and experienced contractors.
