EHEIM technology: the basis of fishkeeping
As pioneers for modern aquarium technology EHEIM have maintained their globally leading position for decades. As in the past, innovative developments set standards in the field of quality filter systems, technical installations and a sensible range of accessories. This technology copies the natural habitats in the aquarium and turns garden ponds into living biotopes on a small scale. Typical habitats for the spectrum of species are our prime objective at all times.
FROM TOYS TO TECHNOLOGY
The company Gunther Eheim founded in 1949 gained fame as a successful producer of technical toys. Even in those days a specially developed centrifugal pump was part of the programme as an accessory for model trains. Later the prototype of the first aquarium filter was based on this technology.
Gunther Eheim - Founder and Partner in the Company
Gunther Eheim, for whom engineering is a passion, combined the micro-world of technical toys with the uncompromising functions of the macro-world. The centrifugal pump for a model railway was the starting point for the current aquaristic programme. Gunther Eheim consistently implemented his business idea “Technology for the Aquarium”, thereby providing aquarists worldwide with the technical basis for an easy-care hobby without problems.
In co-operation with the University at Stuttgart-Hohenheim as well as the renowned Stuttgart Zoo, the “Wilhelma”, the EHEIM range is being constantly updated with the latest technical, physiological, biochemical and material standards; quality and functionality are the driving criteria for a comprehensive range of products. The standard of quality of this global market leader in aquaristics has been certified according to ISO 9000 and subsequent standards.
