Company

The New-York Hamburger Gummi-Waaren Compagnie has been producing ebonite combs (natural rubber) in the highest manufacturing quality for more than 150 years. They are offered under the name Hercules Sägemann and sub-brands, such as Matador and Triumph.

The New-York Hamburger Gummi-Waaren Compagnie was founded in 1870 in Barmbek. Even back then it already produced masterpieces of hairdressing at the production site in Hamburg Harburg before moving to Lüneburg where the factory is located today. The NYH and thus Hercules Sägemann look back on a long and exciting history.
