 Project objective

Harter GmbH (Harter) was founded in 1991 and is still a family-owned company. Harter is Europe-wide known as specialist for heat pump based condensation drying systems, which are applicable in various sectors. By the companies’ unique expert knowledge and the high innovative strength, Harter developed to one of the most innovative companies for drying systems and gained an excellent reputation in recent years. Within the European society, conscious and healthy nutrition as well as gentle and sustainable processing and preservation are becoming increasingly important. To perfectly meet this trend, Harter developed the worldwide unique AIRGENEX®food chamber drying system for a reliable, gentle and energy-efficient drying process. The flexible adjustable process enables perfect drying of various foods and because of the closed air circuit, aroma, appearance and bioactivity retain in the food. By using variable and low temperatures a gentle way of drying food products, which is absolutely stress-free for the products, is guaranteed. An optimum air conditioning and air routing ensure high energy and cost savings compared to competing drying technologies. Moreover, by AIRGENEX®food the valuable condensate, which contains flavour and colour, can be collected and is available for further use. The new technology primarily addresses the food sector, which is a continuously growing market with an expect CAGR of 5.6% in the common years. Besides the food sector, another promising market is the drying market for medical plants, e.g. medical cannabis, which is expected to grow rapidly at a CAGR of 21.11%. By the innovative drying technology, Harter expects to generate additional cumulative turnover of 15 million € and an increase in staff headcount of 18 employees in 2023.
