Like every other medium-sized company, the HABA FAMILYGROUP has a huge energy requirement, specially as it has its own production facilities. But the special thing about its energy footprint is this: The HABA FAMILYGROUP is not only an energy consumer, but also its own energy supplier. The main types of energy and energy sources used at the HABA FAMILYGROUP are electricity, heat, diesel and natural gas. Apart from office buildings, the main consumers of energy are the toy and furniture production departments. Heat is needed for heating the various buildings as well as for drying timber in the company's own drying chamber. This heat is generated almost exclusively by burning residual wood such as wood chips or scrap material.
In recent years, as the company built and converted facilities, some of the HABA FAMILYGROUP building roofs at the company headquarters in Bad Rodach were fitted with PV systems. This means that solar power is generated on site - exactly where it’s needed.
An important goal is to inspire families and to light up children’s eyes. What’s more, many HABA products give children a sense of the beauty of nature and the world of plants at an early age in a playful and fun way. A game for toddlers, for example, promotes an understanding of bees and how they produce honey.
When it comes to products for babies and toddlers, the HABA designers create toys with clear colors and minimalist shapes that leave room for interpretation and imagination. It allows children to give their toy a new interpretation every time they use it. HABA toys offer children various haptic, optical, acoustic and other surprising effects and they never get boring. The HABA toys are constructed and designed with durability and stability in mind. Together with their colleagues from quality assurance and design engineering, the HABA designers are always looking for intelligent design solutions for their products.
