4D and Hörmann


"A good reputation must be earned."
August Hörmann, company founder, 1886-1944

In the market for construction components, more and more gates, doors, frames and operators carry the Hörmann name, making Hörmann Europe's leading provider of such products. This leadership of the family company has been attained through decades of continuous growth as a result of innovation, ensured quality and proximity to the customer. Today, the Hörmann Group is run by the third and fourth generation, i.e. the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of company founder August Hörmann. Thomas J. Hörmann, Martin J. Hörmann, and Christoph Hörmann are the personally liable general partners.

Innovative products

The foundation for today's company was laid in the 1950s when Hörmann started manufacturing a new type of up-and-over garage door: the so-called "Berry door". In the 1960s, space-saving, vertically opening sectional doors for garages, as well as for industrial and commercial buildings, initiated a development with a promising future. Since then, the product range is being constantly extended. Today, it includes well-known "classics", plus rolling shutters, folding, fire, and high-speed doors, door operators, controls, loading technology systems, fire and smoke-tight door assemblies, entrance and internal doors, canopies and frames.

Australian Partnership

Christoph Hormann

“Since 1935 my family has been producing quality garage and commercial doors as well as, later on, matching openers, high performance doors, loading dock technology, steel front doors and fire-rated doors. We succeeded in developing and patenting many components which have helped to continuously improve the technology and quality of our industry. We have some twenty-six manufacturing facilities across Germany, Europe, the United States and also in emerging markets around the globe. 

So it’s with much excitement that we have welcomed 4D Doors as our chosen partner to launch Hörmann in the Australian market. The team at 4D is experienced, sensitive to our requirements of perfection, innovation and quality. Sharing our values and ideas, 4D is clearly capable of shifting Australians toward our products which are designed to satisfy the high demanding European standards and requirements.

Welcome 4D, I look forward to working with you on this very exciting launch into Australia”
