Corporate Philosophy

For almost three hundred years, the name Heyl has stood for an innovative, highly respected business family in Germany, and particularly in the Berlin area. The Heyls in Hildesheim are also descended from this extensive family.

The company Gebrüder Heyl Analysentechnik GmbH & Co. was founded in 1958. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, the company in Hildesheim experienced steady economic growth. With numerous new patents both home and abroad and improvements in their products, as well as collaborations in manufacturing and sales, they were able to continuously expand their market position. At the end of the 1970’s, two decades after it was founded, Gebrüder Heyl was well established.

Since the 1980’s, the ongoing product improvements and consistent customer service have been the focus of company development for Gebrüder Heyl Analysentechnik. The death of company founder Hans-Jürgen Heyl (1989) brought the end of an era. The strategy of growth through additional purchases, started under new management at the end of the 1990’s, did not pay off and later led to course corrections. Since that time, Gebrüder Heyl has again returned to its strengths in development, production, and distribution.

Today the company Gebrüder Heyl Analysentechnik GmbH & Co. KG is a developer and manufacturer of analytical devices for water, controllers for water purification systems, and reagents for fast manual water analysis. The products are mainly used in industry for monitoring water quality in operational processes. Important areas of application include:

  • boiler housings to prevent lime scale build-up, thereby saving energy costs,
  • the foodstuffs, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries for monitoring the water introduced into the products, and
  • water companies for monitoring water quality and preventing corrosion or sedimentation in the pipes.

Today, Gebrüder Heyl Analysentechnik employs 45 employees. In addition, Gebrüder Heyl Analysentechnik has three sales subsidiaries. Gebrüder Heyl Vertriebsgesellschaft für innovative Wasseraufbereitung mbH in Hildesheim has 17 employees, Heyl France s.a.r.l. with headquarters in the vicinity of Paris has 6 employees, and Heyl Brothers North America L.P. has an office in Chicago, IL, USA.

Highest quality, short delivery times, customer satisfaction, and a spirit of partnership are the principles of Gebrüder Heyl, operating in many countries today.

Our corporate philosophy is based on this historical background. The concepts of our corporate philosophy are divided into 7 points:

–      Employee leadership and development

–      Product development

–      Quality

–      Service

–      Environment

–      Business Partners

–      Corporate responsibility


Employee Leadership and Development


Competent staff at every level of the organization is the key to high-quality, zero-defect products and first-class customer service. We ensure that our employees have been expertly trained to perform their particular role. Every member of staff can and should benefit from regular external and internal training sessions. New insights and knowledge are regularly exchanged across departments.We educate our junior staff ourselves in different fields.

In the interest of maintaining the health of our employees measures are offered regularly.




In order to remain at the top of the market, our products will continue in the future to meet our customers’ requirements with innovative applications. The market-ready development of products takes place over ever shorter time periods, is qualitatively matured, and performed in a high-quality and service-friendly manner using state-of-the-art technology so that customer satisfaction is always a given. Development takes place in close cooperation with our distribution partners and their customers.

Related areas of application are tapped with new products.




We incorporate all knowledge gained from repairs, maintenance and telephone customer support directly into the quality of our products.

We provide our customers with the latest product updates and technical information. Our sales team receives regular, intensive training on our products.

As a commercial enterprise, we are committed to our particular responsibility for preserving natural living conditions. It is our conviction that the careful use of the free resources of water, air, earth, flora and fauna must be ensured. We refer here to our environmental guiding principles.


Business Partners


A long-term business relationship, characterized from honesty and reliability is more important to us than one-time transaction.


Corporate Responsibility


As a commercial enterprise, we are part of society. A sense of responsibility to society is a prerequisite for our children’s ability to experience a happy and prosperous future.

We consider the respective national statutory and regulatory provisions to be minimum requirements, and strive for a higher sense of responsibility for society.

Providing additional support for volunteer and government organizations in areas that benefit society is a matter of course for us.

We also expect our suppliers to commit to European ethical principles, regardless of the location of their headquarters.
