Company earned 155.8 million euro between April 2022 and March 2023

Zell am See, 2 June 2023 – “The roller coaster sales trip is over,” company director Hans Georg Hagleitner is keen to emphasise. On 2 June 2023, he presented the most recent results: 155.8 million euro turnover. This refers to last year’s business year running from April 2022 to March 2023. And the total was an all-time record: Hagleitner achieved 136.5 million euro from 2019 to 2020. “155.8 million euro is a sustainable rise, beating the year before by 16.9 percent,” says the industrialist. 133.3 million euro was made during operations from 2021 to 2022. In contrast, the hygiene manufacturer had experienced a drop in turnover during the pandemic, falling 123.1 million euro from 2020 to 2021: lockdowns could not be fully compensated for at that time – despite the increased demand for disinfection.


“Investments in previous years are having an even more positive impact today,” explains Hagleitner. Despite the crisis, his company spent over 45 million euro on expansion from 2019 to 2022 – “not including research and development”. In May 2022, Hagleitner opened a new factory and a Hygiene Academy, both located at the main headquarters in Zell am See; October 2022 saw the start of the German headquarters in Frankfurt am Main.

Sales target: 500 million euro by 2032

Hans Georg Hagleitner sees opportunities for growth, above all on a global scale: in 2032, the company aims to achieve a turnover of 500 million euro worldwide – 44 percent of which will be exported from 2022 to 2023. Hagleitner is represented at 27 locations in twelve European countries and also has trading partners in 66 countries. Around 1,300 people currently work for the company; this number is also expected to increase significantly: Hagleitner will have 2,500 employees in 2032, the company director predicts. The company intends to make a name for itself on the world market, especially with its technological expertise.


Hagleitner designs hygiene: cleaning, disinfectant and care products, cosmetics – plus dispensers, dosing units and apps. The products are made in Zell am See in Austria. This is where Hagleitner has its headquarters and it is where research, development and production take place. At the same time, the company operates consulting, sales, logistics and training facilities at 27 locations.

Hagleitner’s range of products is geared towards companies and public institutions with the hagi brand directly aimed at private customers.


Hagleitner Hygiene has been around since 1971 and is still firmly in family hands. Hans Georg Hagleitner took it over from his parents in 1988 and has been managing the business since then. Hans Georg’s daughters Katharina and Stefanie also hold managerial positions today: Katharina manages activities in Italy and controls numerous sales agendas; Stefanie heads product management and is responsible for the consumer brand hagi.
