The Habasit story began in Switzerland in the 1940s

when Fernand and Alice Habegger recognized the need for innovation in the belting industry. Working in machine sales, Fernand had firsthand experience of just how complicated belt assembly could be. He was determined to make a difference. Together the couple reinvented the industry, drawing on their Swiss heritage of quality and precision.

Today, Habasit is the world leader for fabric-based conveyor belts, plastic modular belts and chains, power transmission belts, and monolithic and timing belts used in a wide range of industries.



Habasit was established in 1946

Our name is derived from the first letters of the Habegger surname, Basel, where the company was registered, and the end of the name of the world's first synthetic plastic, “Bakelit”.

Quality in everything

True quality goes deeper than products. It's the excellence with which we approach everything we do, combining our engineering expertise and our drive for reliability to create lasting value for our customers.
