The Ha-Ra Story - How Ha-Ra came to be
Ha-Ra® comes from the name of the pioneer and inventor of fibre based cleaning technology, the late Hans Raab.
From childhood, Hans was a very independent person who wanted to make his own way in the world and so together with his wife Vera, he established a commercial cleaning business. Very quickly, using commitment and a strong technical understanding of his product and service, Hans Raab developed a very competitive business that provided jobs for more than one hundred people. However, he soon became aware of health problems among his employees, which he traced back to the daily use of cleaning agents, he was determined to make a change for the benefit of his employees, his clients, the wider community as well as the environment. When faced with this challenge, Hans recalled reading an article in the early seventies, about native African tribes and their effective and environmentally-friendly cleaning methods, using sand, mud, grass and water. He knew that our society would not accept these cleaning methods but could see how effective the process was and therefore decided to develop new methods and technology that replicated the process. After years of research, Hans Raab developed a way of producing combinations of cleaning fibres that only require water to produce effective cleaning results.
During the cleaning process, millions of extremely fine hair-like special fibres loosen even the most stubborn dirt and grease, which are then bound together by the fibres and water and collected into the cloths and cleaning pads.
This pioneering invention led to the beginning of a tremendous success story, and these fibres are still so unique that the Ha-Ra companies have applied for over 150 individual patents. At the 1982 Inventors Fair in Basel (Switzerland), Hans Raab presented a window cleaning solution using these fibres and was awarded a gold medal for his invention. In 1984, using the same window cleaning device, Hans Raab set a world record cleaning 638 square meters of window at the Hilton Hotel in Basel in two hours, 54 minutes. Furthermore he also gained recognition for the development of cleaning systems that reduce sewage and water pollution. His company, Ha-Ra® was awarded the "Local Government Environment Prize 1993" at the City and Shire Congress of Lower Saxony on 27th March, following which, his business experienced an unbelievable boom. Today, Ha-Ra's environmentally-friendly cleaning products are sold in over 50 countries worldwide.
