Memories by Uwe Draabe, former proprietor and managing director of DRAABE, Hamburg
Uwe Draabe is the son of Hans-Jürgen Draabe, who in 1949 founded the DRAABE company in Hamburg. With its exclusive marketing and sales rights for Defensor, DRAABE grew into the leading source of air humidification systems in Germany. In 1982, Uwe Draabe introduced the company’s first own innovation: a transportable purified water container with reverse osmosis, which DRAABE sold in an innovative rental package.

The Man with an Opinion
Hans Badertscher (1920-2011) was a gifted design engineer and a patron of the old school. Not only did he create the name Condair, but the first Swiss steam humidifier, still an important product in Condair’s product range today, also belongs to his innovative achievements.
We are proud to share that since 1972, our Danish customer, the Deacon House of St Luke’s Foundation in Hellerup, has had a humidifier installed at the pipe organ in their church hall. We have had a service agreement with them for just as long.
