Founding of the sole proprietor firm Thomas Hagedorn in Gütersloh

Thomas Hagedorn decided to be self-employed at the age of twenty-six. He had been at one time or another a locksmith, a truck driver, a machine operator, a foreman, and a construction manager. Armed with an excavator, knowledge of all areas of the demolition industry, a passion for what he did, and a pronounced sense of customer-orientation, he founded the sole proprietor firm Thomas Hagedorn. From the beginning, the entrepreneur placed value on clean construction conduct and impeccable reliability. At the same time, he recognised the intrinsic value of building rubble and through the use of mobile crushers was able to ensure the sustainable use of recyclables. The high quality recycled materials were met with high demand and cemented the growth of the young company. The founder reinvested liquid assets directly into the building of the machinery park and in additional personnel. Slowly but surely, the firm’s name recognition grew. Despite the tight general economic conditions, Hagedorn continued to grow and develop steadily and reliably.
