The first few steps towards perfect accessories
We have the trends of the future
What is in and what is going to be in – we’re the first to know. Our product management department tracks down every trend worldwide. We give terminal devices added value with around 3,000 innovations per year, and offer high levels of protection, enhanced usability and individual style. That’s what turns accessories into the Hama product experience.
It pays to have accessories with a perfect balance of form and function, it is for that reason that we have our own expert team that ensures the functionality and perfect design of our products. They don’t just rely on decades of experience, they also gather inspiration from current fashion trends. Rapid prototyping allows them to implement designs on a 3D printer immediately.
Meeting the trends
Where do we find the trends? We visit important international trade shows, such as the CES in Las Vegas, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona or the Electronic Fair in Hong Kong. We respond to innovations immediately meaning that our accessories are often available on the market before the corresponding terminal device.
Meet Hama at the leading trade shows. We are there where you are. Meet us as at around 40 internal trade fairs, whether at the IFA in Berlin, the Mobile World in Barcelona, the Futura in Salzburg or up close and personal at our in-house trade fair.
Only the best make it
Better safe than sorry. That’s why we take technical tests and quality checks very seriously.
Precision is a typical German virtue; it is simply in our nature. Our team of experts in Germany have the latest equipment at hand. Everything is checked three times; the initial sample, the product when it is ready for series production and at incoming goods. Our inspections are strict and comprehensive:
- Electrical loads
- Mechanical effects
- Resistance to heat and cold
- Emission class
Our picking and shipping logistics department covers around 25,000 square metres. Among other things, our warehouse system consists of two automatic high-bay pallet warehouses, an automatic carton storage warehouse and a highly dynamic shuttle warehouse.
Our IT department manages them to ensure that they work together harmoniously guaranteeing problem-free logistics.
We take service very seriously. Whether you contact us via e-mail, Facebook or via the telephone hotline, we are happy to give you detailed answers. Because we want to become even better, we are happy to hear criticism and suggestions.
Good vocational training is the best accessory for life
Young talent means progress for our company. That’s why we provide our employees in Germany with the best accessories for their career – opportunities to have a secure future and develop their personal abilities.
New ways of thinking generate new ideas. This is why a combination of younger generations working together with more experienced employees is very important for our company. Training at Hama passes on our unique philosophy on accessories to young people early on. Our employees can develop their creative potential, flexibility and independence from day one, meaning that the company will continue to grow and be as lively as it is now.
As a dedicated provider of vocational training, we offer a wide variety of training programmes and degree courses. Of course, this variety is typical for Hama, and it extends from IT and media to mechatronics, warehouse logistics, sales and product management.
