HORN was founded in 1944 by ex Air Force Colonel and Engineer Mr. Ernst Horn. HORN has been, for more than six decades, a well-known brand name on the world market as a specialist for pumps - mainly for diesel, fuel, oil and other lubricants.

The origin of DEUTSCHE TECALEMIT goes back to the year 1910 when Metallwerke Windelsbleiche was founded. DEUTSCHE TECALEMIT was added as a subsidiary in 1932 with the international tradename TECALEMIT. The company gained international reputation through design, manufacture, and supply of a comprehensive range of vehicle servicing equipment for motorcycle, car and commercial vehicle workshops, plant and machinery maintenance.

In the year 2000, HORN acquired the DEUTSCHE TECALEMIT 2000 GmbH & Co. KG including all patents and trademarks and has successfully integrated their product range into its own portfolio. The new brand HORN TECALEMIT was born!

Our company belongs to the INDUS Holding AG (www.indus.de) since1991, a S-DAX listed company.

2011 was an important year for the internationalization of the HORN GmbH & Co. KG - with its foundation of TECALEMIT Inc. HORN conquered the U.S. market.

The acquisition of the global market leader in the design & manufacture of Tyre Inflation and Compressed Air products PCL - Pneumatic Components Ltd. - was a further step in the international market.

In 2012 the HORNGROUP was founded, managing today the two brands TECALEMIT and PCL.
