Hubert Prince zu Hohenlohe-Waldenburg deceased

The co-founder of Hohenloher Spezial-Maschinenbau GmbH &Co. KG and long-time shareholder and technical director passed away at the age of 85 at his residence Waldhof in Obersulm. He is survived by his widow, four children and four children-in-law, sixteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Prince Hubert, as he was respectfully called at HSM, built up the company together with his brother from humble beginnings.

As early as 1967, he introduced the Timberjack brand of forestry tractors to the German market. The mobile log debarkers followed as his first own design. Here, his innovations of the tiltable structure of the debarking unit and the simultaneous use of two cranes for feeding and poling the debarked logs were trend-setting for the industry.

From the mid-eighties, the focus was on the company's own brand HSM forestry machines, which were specially adapted to the Central European market. From the nineties, HSM was thus the market leader in Central Europe.

The cooperation with the company Konrad Adler KG in Wolfegg already started with the installation of Adler forestry winches on Timberjack. From the very beginning, HSM forestry machines were completely built at Adler, of course with Adler winches.

Many HSM-typical features were developed by Prince zu Hohenlohe-Waldenburg, e.g. the design "narrow with wide tires" by central twisting on the special forestry tractor and the special design of the narrow bogie axles on the forwarder.

In the company HSM, which he followed with benevolent interest until the end, his technical developments and his entrepreneurial commitment live on. His eldest son Felix has been running the business for over twenty years. All HSM employees are aware of how much they owe to Hubert Prinz zu Hohenlohe-Waldenburg's decades of building up the company.
