A long tradition of innovation.
In 1878, the brothers Franz and Anton Hamm founded the company Maschinenfabrik Gebr. HAMM. In those early days, as pioneers in the dynamic new fi eld of agricultural industrialisation, the two brothers made complete threshing machines.
1911 marked an important milestone in HAMM company history: While steamrollers dominated the market, the Hamm brothers designed and built the world’s fi rst diesel-powered roller. This was truly a groundbreaking moment in road construction. By the end of the 1920s, Franz and Anton had come to realise that paved roads would become increasingly important in the future, so the company decided to specialise in rollers. It was an opportune decision, and in 1932 the engineers at HAMM had a tremendous innovation patented: the world’s fi rst tandem roller with all-wheel drive and steering. This was a fundamental revolution in the design of rollers – a revolution that reverberates in the industry to the present day!
