Who we are

HALFAR®: One brand, two business divisions and above all one thing - strong bags. That's what everything revolves around at the Bielefeld bag forge, and has been since 1986. HALFAR® manufactures bags that solve technical problems as well as bags that fulfil advertising wishes. The customers are as different as their requirements.

Halfar supports them as best it can. Because it is not only our areas of responsibility and projects that show diversity, but also our employees - for example, if they have no German language skills, we provide extensive support:
