Our History

HIBON was founded in 1899. At that time, it was a small cycle and gear manufacturing company also handling automobile repairs. Thirteen years later, the first rotary vaned combustion motor was built which subsequently became a viscous liquid rotary pump.



In 1924, Georges HIBON moved from the automobile motor repairs towards the manufacturing and under the brand name "de Bazelaire" tried a short penetration into the world of automobile construction. Automobiles were soon left aside by the grandsons of the founder who opted for pumps and compressors, the company's real assets.
