Our history


Company founded by Heinrich Borgwaldt

On 9 January 1867, Heinrich Borgwaldt founded the company in the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. The company initially specialized in wholesale trade with foods and drugs. A connection to the tobacco industry was thus established early on in the company's history. Commodities to improve the taste of tobacco followed.


Move to Hamburg

Heinz-Erik Borgwaldt, the grandson of the founder, joined the company after an apprenticeship in a drug trading company in Lübeck and after experiences abroad in East Asia. In 1937 he became the owner of the company and decided to move the company to the economically more significant city of Hamburg.

Ab 1950

New directions & specialization

After the difficult times of the Second World War, the tobacco industry in Germany was greatly inspired by English and American tobacco products. Heinr. Borgwaldt GmbH became increasingly more involved in the research and development of additives for the tobacco industry. Completely new tobacco ingredients were developed and produced. The company, which was formerly only involved in trade, transformed into a manufacturing company for tobacco ingredients. Streamlined procedures for processing tobacco components, such as shorts, stems or the like were known under the trademarks HEIBOFOL and HEIBOFLAKE and were protected with patents.

Ab 1985

New partners & continued success

After the death of Heinz-Erik Borgwaldt in 1965, his wife Ilse took over the successful management of the company. In 1985, Heinr. Borgwaldt GmbH was sold to Peter Nagel. As of 1988, Mr. Nagel managed the business of the company together with Mr. Heinrich Köhler.


New location

In 1989, the company moved to its current location, Schnackenburgallee 15.



In order to meet these needs, the company restructured. The areas Analysis, Aromas and Equipment were restructured into three separate divisions: ASL Analytic Service Laboratory GmbH, Borgwaldt Flavor GmbH and Borgwaldt Technik GmbH.


Member of the Hauni Group

Since 2013, the Borgwaldt Group has belonged 100% to the Körber AG's Business Area Tobacco under the direction of Hauni Maschinenbau AG.

Having Hauni as a strong partner at its side has opened up new growth opportunities. The complementary strengths of the respective companies have offered great potential in the search for innovative customer solutions.
