Because it means more to us than just calcium sulphate
"When you buy pure gypsum, filler or joint filler at a DIY or specialist shop, the goods often come from our company. Our gypsum is even used in foods, for example, in the production of sugar."
Our name translated into English means Crown Gypsum. We do not have any royal connections, but our brand name is similarly famous worldwide and we have been supplying top quality products to trade and industry for more than 60 years.
The Hilliges gypsum plant in Osterode am Harz belongs to the Bartz family. We are the only independent medium-sized gypsum producer in Germany which is a market dominated by large companies.
Due to our innovative products and exceptional range of services we have captured a niche market in which we successfully assert ourselves.
Customers appreciate our independence, flexibility and neutrality. To retain their confidence in us, we will also focus on refining technology in the future.
For us gypsum is more than just the chemical formula CaSO4 - 2H2O, for us it is one of life's essential materials and fascinating due to its thousands of applications.
"Due to our own source of high quality raw material and the flexibility of a family business, we occupy a special niche market in which we have been able to assert ourselves and want to continue to do so in the future."
"Fulfilling the wishes of our customers by combining tradition and technology is a challenge we meet with pleasure. Innovativeness and qualified staff enable us to operate successfully in a fluctuating market."
